Here is a job we recently finished. This bed is a Zimmerman 14' dumpbed with fold down sides. The bed has an integrated rear end with lights, step, and hitch plate. The up-fit is mounted on a 2020 Chevy Silverado 6500 HD.
One neat feature of Zimmerman dump beds is the built in tarp. Every Zimmerman dump bed comes with this style tarp as standard. The manual return crank is conveniently located at arm height. This crank location is unlike any other on the market and is definitely a welcomed addition!
Here is a view of the dual drop down sides. The sides split in the middle allowing for all or part of the side to be open. Since each side section is independent the weight to fold them is also very manageable.
The rear end of the bed has well designed looks and function. The built in LED lights give plenty of visibility and the rear step above the hitch is a nice touch for overall usability. The 7-way trailer socket is conveniently located just above the rear step.
We also installed a 36"W x 18"D x 18"H x 1/8" thick aluminum diamond plate underbody box on the passenger side for storage.
Thanks for checking out the post!
