Re: Wtb dump bed TT

There is a gentlemen here in Arizona that has the whole TT with a crank dump on a C cab in really nice condition, but it is the whole truck in running condition. If interested, call me and I will connect you to him. It is an 8 hour drive from Northern California. Frank 818-254-6797
