It all depends on what your needs are. For my needs, it would be worthless. For yours, it might be perfect.

Looks like a short bed half ton. What are you going to use it for?

IMO it would be pretty limited in use...... can't get much in the bed and can't pull a whole heck of a lot, but I see guys using Explorers and minivans so I guess you would be better off then they are.

Nice truck though.

You said what I was trying to say in fewer words. :)

do you think it would be an eye catcher for advertisement or not?

it is a 1/2 ton short bed ford, i've had it loaded down to the top of the bed done great.

I don't see anything that would catch a potential customers eye, unless you got a full truck wrap.

If it does the Job you wanted it to do, then it is a great truck, color also good.

Standard cab/long box/ 3/4 ton is ideal for almost anything, and can be had for under 4 grand a lot of times. But what really matters is your use. If it works, it works and you've already got it.

I personally would be a little worried about those tires if you are putting much in the bed, But other than that it should work for most of your needs.

It is a good truck, just to haul u around to do quick simple jobs, as long as u have a small trailer to haul equipment around like i do, i have a 93 chevy ex cab, 1/2 ton, it DID fine, but pretty soon all the nuts and bolts will be back together and will take another summer to put on the books

I think it is a sharp truck to do some lettering on for just a lawn care rig, but I don't think the rims are the best choice. I would put some stock rims with some 8 ply tires on it.

I like the pickup. I have one similar to that. Mine is a fleetside long bed. The thing I really don't care for and kinda screams toy or car is the step side box. For any sort of real work a Step side sets you back as far as usefulness. A fleet side long beg can allow more storage to make it useful. Yes you may be able to tow a trailer. But there are times when loading up the box and dropping the trailer works well too. The stepside would hinder that.

here is the rough copy of the lettering for my pick up, i want to run it by you all to see what you thought about it before it's put on the truck?
