Agreed with Ken, fantastic find especially considering the shape it is in. Finds like this will only decrease as time goes on.
What are your plans for it?
Congrats!

My two sons and I plan to get everything working mechanically correct.
Keep it as original as possible. Use it on our farm to move firewood, dirt, wood chips, etc.it will be kept under cover in barn.

Glad to hear ya’ll like it.

I think it is an extremely cool piece.

Dump bed is very straight and solid.
I need to replace drivers side wing window, otherwise, in need of no cosmetics.

my 58 2 ton weighs 9100 empty. It has a 13' flatbed on it that dumps, no sides, I would assume yours is heavier with the steel sides so, a 2-TON said, 10-11K sounds about right, maybe a tad more (not sure if the Dayton wheels add more weight than my 22..5 Budd wheels)

Stopped at a weight scale this past summer hauling this for a fellow bolter.
F-250 power stroke, 20' dual tandem gooseneck and the 48 2-Ton with hoist and not much left of the bed.
It weighed 19,500 Lbs. with me in it.
Think I'll keep the 24,000 lbs. tags.

The F250 should weigh in at 7400 lb probably including you (I have the same truck), so the trailer/stovebolt combo would be 12,100 lb. I'm guessing your trailer weighs between 3-4000 lb. So that would put the stovebolt at around 8000 lb.
