If I gave you a 2010 F-550 powerstroke cab and chassis and $40,000 what would you do with it? For a plow/landscape/lawn route truck?

Id put some big ole semi truck wheels and tires on it, this looks bad-a** on a pickup!! And definitely put a dovetail landscape body on it.

Maybe you should take the 40k and buy some better equipment. You would look pretty dumb with 22"s and a beat up mower and craftsman anything on your truck.

Hey, are you knocking my fleet of craftsman riding mowers? Actually all my WBs are in great shape, and would look great trailing behind that big F550 with 22s! But it would be a bit much for just hauling 3 WBs around.

Keep buying Dodges it is keeping the Mexicans employeed and keeps the Americans un-employeed. Buying a Dodge is like flushing your jobs down the toilet. The reason why Dodge trucks are built in Mexico is so Dodge can keep the prices low so people will buy their POS trucks.

There are more Ford trucks on the road than any other manufacture and atleast they didn't need to be bailed out by the gov't. Even the Germans gave up Chrysler because it is a loosing company.

Not all Dodges are built in Mexico, so don't make uneducated generalized statements.

12' dumping flatbed with 56" gussets, and of course it would be a 4x4 extended cab.

I like Tim's answer

12' aluminum flatbed dump body, 9'6" Western MVP + plow, and a Salt dog Poly V-box spreader. I would put the rest of the money into savings for the time being until more equipment was needed!

Forgot the plow and auger spreader.

Also, about 212 marker lights, a little overkill, but I like lights. :laugh:
