Do you have a link for some pictures I'am interested I may out bid you :laugh:

Serious its what I'am looking for :laugh:

Just kidding :waving:

The truck sounds really famillar it really sounds like a twin to Duane's truck he is a member on Oil Burners. He really likes his truck but the reason why he has a 4x4 is he is in really soft construction sites.

One thing to keep in mind with a 4x4 medium duty is it is harder to load as it sits pretty tall. They usually don't have good road speed as they are geared low. They handle a little rough as you have a big driving axle on the front that adds alot of unsprung weight.

I bet you will be paying atleast 35,000 for that truck you maybe even looking at more maybe 40,000.

Thats a nice truck but you'll be paying around 25,000 for the starting bid I think. Hope you get it.

it will probably bring way out of my price rang but i would give 25 but 40 for a single axel i don't think i could handel that even this one. but the 4x4 dump that size just excites me
