Mkwl, I love my 3500hd. Never had one issue with it. Hauls anything I've ever asked of it, pulls our 12k equip trailer just fine. Absolutely love it. That being said, it just doesn't have a great payload. DOT is really tough in my area and getting tougher. I'm considering purchase of an f550 to stay legal all the time and not worry. If you have side boards on the 3500 and put mulch in it you are legally overweight. I work to hard to be spending money on fines, I'd rather spend that money on a truck payment and keep working rather than being weighed with DOT all the time. I'm sure you could get anF450 4x4 with dump bed for 38-40k depending on bed and options. Really something to consider AND you can always take on bigger jobs now that you would have bigger equip.
