If unloading your debris-laden pickup with gloves and a shovel isn't your idea of a good time, the Load Hog might be the labor saver you've been looking for. The Load Hog mounts invisibly under the bed and converts a standard full-size pickup truck into a pneumatically controlled dump truck, without changing its appearance. With a capacity of 4,500 pounds, it can unload a full bed of gravel, debris, or building materials in seconds. Available for 1/2- to 1-ton chassis, the dump bed can be ordered on new Ford and GM pickups for about $3,000. But if you don't need a new truck, or you're a Dodge fan, a retrofit kit sells for about $2,500. You can install it yourself or contract the work to an automotive accessory installer or body company.
