Roll-Out Dump Box for Pickups
"It's easy to build and works great," says John Semadeni, Loma Linda, Calif., who built a roll-out box for the bed of his pickup that rolls out the back end and tips down to the ground to dump its load.
Made out of 1-in. (the sides) and 3/4-in. (the floor) plywood, the box fits just in-side the bed of Semadeni's 1956 Ford. The corners of the box are reinforced with angle iron brackets. The box slides back and forth on two rollers made out of lengths of 1-in. pipe inside 1 1/4-in. pipe. Mounting brackets attach to the ends of the inside pipe and there are holes in the outer 1 1/4-in. pipe so grease can be squirted inside between the inner and outer pipes.
Key to the success of the dump box is a metal "stop" at about the midpoint of the bottom of the box. It catches on the rear, bumper-mounted roller when Semadeni rolls the box out the rear to dump. As the stop hits the rear roller, the back of the box tips to the ground.
