    Hello

    Im currently running around 50-60 hives. We are planning on making increases this year and not honey. Hopelfully 100 or so. I'm looking for a flat bed for a 99 toyota tacomma extended cab 4x4. Most of my yards are in swamp area's down beat out logging roads. Anyone use a truck this small, or have a flat bed on a small truck?

    You can get a flatbed for just about any vehicle. With regards to your truck, I don't think it would be a problem hauling supers on it, but not sure if you could haul many hives with it especially if they are on pallets. I guess it would depend on how many trips you wanted to make and how many hives you run in your yards.
