Do yourself a favor and call your insurance agent first. It has been said on here before that you can't privately own a flat bed/rollback truck for personal use. As such, your insurance agency is going to have to automatically start calculating risk for whatever you will be hauling on said truck and that puts you into a business category; which gets expensive really fast.
