Really like the fold down sides on the dump body, looks like its in beautiful shape. Whats the GVW? Also PAINT THOSE PLOW EARS haha, looks great though, good luck with it!

The fold down sides definitely come in handy on the job site, n ya the body and frame are immaculate. What u mean by paint the ears? U mean the mirrors?

Looks mint, but I never understand the short sides on all the dump trucks up north. I mean you can't get much material in back it seems.

www.thedieselplace.com your new best friend. you will really like the 6.5 but it does have its quirks. once u figure it out its really a great motor.

Nice truck, I really like the fold down sides and the telescoping cylinder. I would love to find a good used 1ton with that body on it.

thanks for the kind words guys.

i know what u mean about the low sides south florida..my only guess as to why ppl do it is maybe they try keeping the weight of the box as low as possible.

mikeri24 - i already have a '92 6.5, the original was a lemon, choked after 220 000km, threw in a rebuilt n havent had problems since. i just love the sound of this 6.5 compared to the 92. sounds more beastly.

greenstarlawns - the fold down sides are amazing, if i had to buy a new dumper off the lot, getting fold down sides would be my first option. just make sure theyre aluminum. metal sides get heavy. and the telescopic cylinder is great. i personally find it better than a scissor lift underneath the box

Now that you've had the truck for awhile now is it still doing well for you?

I love it. Definitely better than a pick up with an insert. Its been good to me other than the PMD having to be changed
