If I were you I would plan on spending 10-15k and buy an Isuzu NPR that you will last 7-10 years. I just bought an 06 NPR crew cab diesel with 80k miles for 8k, and it was located just a couple hours from your location. I am going to set it up just like I want it(side dump, box, 2' dovetail) and I will keep it for the next 7-10 years.
Looks like it was a yellow "penske" truck at one time.

Ive seen fellers paint the "box" with house paint using a roller brush and it looked presentable. The cab could be painted with a quart of acrilic enamal for around 150$ in materals. He said he already had a ramp.

O6 NPR for 8k would be better if he could find one.
