Curious to see how many use what vehicle they use. A car to 550. If you use more then one you can check off the different types.

I actually have had to do it a couple times over the years but park real far back so no one sees it. No one has seen my newest one though, they would never give me the job!

So how come the fords got to have spots for their medium trucks but all the other makes did not? I ask because ram is not on your list.

I think I mentioned Dodge in the beggining. I like them but they came out in 08 (5500) and arent very common. You never see them used. Im looking for an 05ish.

Didn't know Dodge made anything bigger then a 3500 so that's why there is no 5500 option.

Being GM doesn't make Top Kicks any more I left them off the list.

Those that checked off other could post what type of truck they are using.

around here when you buy a ZR1 you have to sign a paper saying if you die your family can't sue Chevy and also in order to buy it you have to take a driving lesson paid for by Chevy

It comes with a driving course, its optional not mandatory.

'95 Chevy 3500HD dually dump. These trucks are equivelent to the 5500 models that ford produces now (payload capacity). They were the perfered truck for use as tow trucks and to be stretched for rollbacks. 454 bigblock with the power of a 305 and the fuel consumption of an 18 wheeler. Keeping the tank full ate me alive the last few years and I can't wait to be able to upgrade to something newer with a diesel engine.

The rams in the 4500-5500 are very rare so I can understand your not knowing about them. I have 2011 crew cab ram 4500 dump for my cutting crew and she is getting a twin sister this April. I went for the 4500 because the 3500s don't have the ability to hold the loads I often need. And I opted not for the 5500 because we felt 16,000 gvw was enough and didn't need to jump to 19,500. I think people when given a chance will figure out what their actual needs are and buy the appropriate truck. I can not see myself needing any larger but also can not see myself going any smaller for us the 4500 is the perfect size for our operation.

2011 dodge ram 2500 Power Wagon, deep water blue. Warn winch built in. Love the truck not so much the 11.5 mpgs however the 4.56 rear end really helps with towing.
