Pickup dump with gooseneck?

I'm considering ways to add a hoist under the bed of my truck. There are plenty of kits out there to copy, but all of them have the hoist and scissor right in the middle of the bed. My truck has a big ass plate welded there for the goose, so that won't work. Any ideas for ways to package this? I'm getting tired of shoveling stuff out of this thing....

If you have an insert you can't haul the goose like the OP wants to do with out taking out the insert. Not sure how easy it would be to make it a clean job, but what about the telescoping rams used for real dump trucks? Find one off of a F700 or something and make a dog house in the front of your bed for it.

some of the dump trailers I've seen on the road around here use 2 rams, one on each side outside the frame rails. you should be able to do this with your truck you just need to figure out how to keep the crap from falling out of the hole for your GN hitch.

This is my vote. I'd really really like to do the same thing, but after i build a flatbed for my truck. I'd go the telescoping route if I could find a smaller one for a reasonably price. The ones that come on the bigger stuff are freakin huge and far to big for a pickup truck. They do however put this style of ram on some of the dump bed inserts. So I'd try to source the part from one of those companies as if you were buying it to replace the one on the insert that you own.

Found this one. I had no idea they made telescoping rams that small, everyone I have been around is huge. All of our MDT's used a regular ram an scissor hoist.

Going to call tomorrow and see if I can just buy a ram.

Not a pick-up bed but my dad just had an aluminum bed custom made with a gooseneck hitch and a dump. Several companies said it couldn't be done. But I found these guys. Here is their website: http://martinswelding.com/Flat_Bed.php

It was pretty pricey but the bed is an aluminum flatbed and the hoist mounts forward of the frame mounted hitch plate. Hoist is a Scott level lift mounted backwards. Just an idea for you. I don't think the hoist was actually that expensive.

Honestly their prices don't seem that bad, the bed with a couple of their accessories would come out to about $3k. That SEEMS on par with any other quality bed out there.

All said and done his bed was $9300 installed. That included running boards, brake control dump hoist, gooseneck and bumper hitches and the bed. It has pretty much every option on it.
