I hear ya. I've been going back and forth between what I want and what I need for about a year now. And I've missed out on a few good deals in the process. I work by myself 95% of the time, just me and a machine, so I need everything to mesh as easily as possible (tailgate, etc.). Still haven't decided which way to go.
I do see the possibility of making short load local material deliveries here and there, but mainly I get asked a lot to take small dump loads at the end of projects and I'm leaving easy money on the table by not being able to take them. And the idea of not having to pay extra for short loads of rip rap, etc? That would be sweet.
