Heres some pics of the truck I bought today 95 f350 stake bed 5.8 Liter 2wd 40,500 miles for $4,500, Good Deal? Also picked up a stihl br 600 blower today. Awesome machine! Next is a Trailer and then...um...OH!! I need a Mower! I am going to have the cab of the truck painted white, I think it will look better. what do you think?

Looks good, good deal too.

I wouldn't waste money painting it though...It looks good as-is and changing the color won't make you anymore money.

Good deal, it nice. I would put a hoist on it though, that will SAVE you ALOT of TIME.

Thats a nice clean engine.. You'll love the 600 too

:laugh: im in the same boat as far as clients go, im looking to spend over a 1000 on a trailer and a Br 600 for fall work but i dont have any lined up yet, kinda unnerving.

trucks nice but it would be great if you could put a hoist in it and make it dump. not that hard to do

^^^ Yea that truck is begging for a hoist, well worth the $1000.00. You'll thank everybody that told you to do so once mulching time comes around.

The motor on that truck is bone dry, you got a great deal!!! I would keep the paint the way it is and spend it on a hoist for the bed. JMO

Yes white looks the best,lol. A mower or two would be nice. You have a good truck to start out with though, and like someone else said look into making it into a dump with a hoist kit, it will save you a ton of time and headaches!
