    @SJ_Treeguy has got a really sweet setup! In the dump body takes up minimal room. Easy on /off!

    Lol. Let be honest, there's nothing like the vast lifting capacity of a stick crane.

    Are you keeping your rig? I thought you were selling it. They put mine on top of my mat storage.

    I was going to since I was under the impression that they couldn't add the hydraulics to run the grapple saw. But it's still at tiffin's it should be done in about 3 weeks

    I thought about it but it will take away from it fitting in tight spots with a grapple stand in front of the bumper.. It really has to stick out cause the hood comes all the way foward when opening.

    If you plan to install a dump bed, you could go ahead and get the small rack Tiffin makes, then just transfer it into tje dump bed and box around it. Only thing is to make sure counterweighting of bed vs. dump is not different tje wrong way. Then you maximize dump bed space. Unless you want a mat rack like Carolina. Yes, bumper mount sounds good, but has its problems like you pointed out.
