      Did you check your truck's gross vehicle weight rating?

      How much is the dirt you want to haul per cubic yard? 1,500lbs? more or less?

          Ya, it depends on your vehicles payload...with a 3/4 ton and an 8 ft bed, you can probably only carry 2 yards at a time, since I think most 8 ft beds are 2 yards in volume.

          It's probably cheaper to rent a bin or hire a dump truck, depending on how much you want to remove. It's usually a lot easier than making tons of runs to the dump on your own.
