You use 2 seperate ramps? Thats dangerous as hell to use in the snow! Mine is a tri-fold thats as wide as the truck - a few inches.

Which one? THe blue one? That one doesnt get used for snow. I don't trust my bros with a brand new truck lol I like using the green truck cuz its a beater. I don't beat any of my trucks, but with that one, if i get a scratch, i wont go crazy lol

Because its a steep incline. The truck is high up, and the plow just makes the quad longer.

So why exactly do you have 3 trucks, 2 are brand new and a nice car and only really use 2 for work and already have the red chevy for personal? Doesn't make sense to me, but you know your own situation not me.....just asking to understand somewhat.

I don't see why you'd have a new truck you're making payments on sitting all winter.

I the first set of ramps have straps that go from the ramp to the hitch. The the second set locks into the rungs of the first. Its actually safer because its not steep

Everything is paid for except the red truck, so no payments. The green truck was my main mowing rig truck. I needed a 2500 for the mowing route so i bought the blue 2500 to replace the green 1500. I got a great deal on it, so everything fell into place. I put alot of money into the green truck and won't sell it. Its pretty much my "beater" now. Almost everything has been replaced in it. The red diesel is a truck i've allways wanted. Diesel power, crew cab and a full size bed. I pretty much use it on my long trips either with or without the dump. Pretty much any towing long distances i use the diesel. Its fully loaded so its comfortable to drive everyday and is very fuel efficient but also expensive. $ doesnt matter... as long as the truck does its job. I'm very satisfied with it. The blue 2500 gets literally half the mpg the diesel gets, but is still a great truck. I need 2 trucks, one being a backup. I'm at the point in my business where 1 truck absolutely will not work.

Just myself. My brother, i guess you can call an employee. He does the firewood, helps me with the mowing, leaf cleanup and snow.

I had nothing to do so i decided to paint the inside of my dump at my dads shop. Took me about 6 hours to prep, sand, and primer one day and another 3 hours or so to shoot the black on there. I used primer, then black epoxy on top of that. I'll have pictures of the final product tomorrow when i take some pics. It looks brand new on the inside again. Sure took a beating over the months!
