You did not say if you are after topsoil or common fill/sand/gravel. The Search the List categories to find sources of those would be Mulch and Topsoil, or Stone and Gravel, respectively.


Depending on the bed length you have in your truck and the year and whether a heavy duty trailer package was installed, your rated bed payload (assuming empty before loading) ranges from about 1600-2600# - which to be on the safe side would be 1/2CY of damp material, less if wet or cobbles/rocks. A pretty dry topsoil or sand you are probably good for 2/3 CY, provided you stay below about 45-50 mph on the drive home. Do NOT try to take a full load - that could easily be a 3-4 fold overload - you do NOT need a swaybacked frame, broken axle, blown tires, or destroyed suspension. Far better to make extra trip(s) if you need more material.


Cost generally about $20-30 some for that much at a topsoil screening and loading facility or a quarry or concrete plant which sells to the public (not all do) - more like $30-50 range from a landscaping supply place which stockpiles a truckload at a time and sells in small quanitites to the public. Quarries and bulk sales places cnanot load a pickup with a topper, almost no landscape materials places will dare try to neak a bucket load inside a covered bed, plus that puts the load all on the back axle - not a good idea, si if you have a topper remove it or buy from a place which will delivery - some nurseries and landscape supply palces will deliver locally for a not exhorbitant rate.


This of course is for bulk material, not bagged. Bagged products more like $6-10 per 50-70# bag.
