(From reading previous threads, I'm pretty sure it's you and your dad doing all this work, correct me if I'm wrong)

You guys do great things with old vehicles, giving them a "second chance." The dump truck looks really sharp.

me my dad and my brother yes thats correct, and yes all we do is buy old vehicles and just make them look nicer put whatever we have to in them to get them on the road and they are the best truck u could ask for. this truck is a powerhouse and has 80k miles on it and we got it for $3500. im actually going to be buying myself a truck im looking at a 1990 f-350 pick up but it has the 460 in it.

in a few weeks it will have gold leaf lettering we just need to paint the rims of the truck but some more diamond plate steps to get in the dump. then we are doing some work on the inside of the truck. overall it will be a nice looking truck.

It's also nice that you can fix it up however you want it, and make it work for the needs of your company.

Yeah it is nice. It's also nice that my brother works in a custom shop for trucks to do custom bodys, tool boxes, flat beds, rack bodys, lighting and all that good stuff. he can get us free stuff and what not. i should get a pick of the back of the truck. and a shot of inside. and ill get some pictures of some of the property's that we do. then my dad that knows everything about auto body...and well me i just help out im learning how to paint i did the bumper the tanks. now i just gotta get out driving it.

I saw one of the aluminum bodies at a show awhile ago they are very nice. you must have to save up a little more to put one of those custome bodies on any idea what they cost ?

ya like just the body can go from 3,000 to 15,000 and thats without lighting ill ask my brother tomorrow he can get it a little more accurate but i think like the small dumps are $3000 $5000. like in a few years i want to get a old mack b-model and put a custom body on it. that truck would look really good.
