But I will say that you can store all kinds of stuff in those service bodies and for irrigation that would be a very good truck to use.
Its crazy the shape of older trucks in the south. That truck here wouldn't have cab corners or brake lines ...(kinda like mine). haha Im so on the edge of taking a trip down south and picking up a 2wd truck for the mowing route..some good deals to be had.
