nice truck. Is that lettering for your company or the previous owners?

The only thing that I would look at getting is some wheel covers from ford to dress it up a slight bit. JMO

Nice looking trucks, and of course someone has to ask how much you paid for it....... so I will save that someone the trouble and ask.

52,750 miles on it for $9800 cash.. not too bad IMHO - the truck actually held a full cube of block this week for one of the jobs we did - I think the cube is around 3200#'s

This one I put 9,000# of pea gravel on it once. Would i do it again? ABSOLUTELY NOT! It was stupid and unsafe! The springs were mashed, overload springs were definately put to use, and the braking action was very dimished. But, I'd never hauled more than 2500# on it before that, and 2500# sure doesn't feel like anything is back there!
w/4.5 ton of pea gravel on back and me and a helper in the cab, truck weighed over 15,000#. I'm thinking around 15,600 or something...
