I have had the slt ramp, and it is cool and nice but your never gonna make that 7k back in increased productivity from it. And one sh!tty day your pump is going to fail or a hose is gonna blow. Btw you can buy a replacement pump at northern for about 20% the price slt will sell you one.

I love your truck, but i just cant make it pencil out for me.

Gottcha, the last few dove tails we've bought must not have been that good because they were all quite heavy. I did try the "gator lift" or what ever it was called but it wore out rather quickly.

The springs are good but they need to be replaced once a year.

Btw, if i had your money i'd burn my money.... Then go buy an slt!!

good deal man, we actually just bought a used one from super lawn trucks as well at a very fair price. this one will be for our construction crew instead. the maintenance crew has loved their new one so far and my crew was getting jealous.

muddywater-

any problems getting the mowers up and down the ramp without dragging? looking at doing the same thing. and can you add a hitch still at the bottom so you could still pull a trailer when it comes to time mulch jobs?

thanks

No problem with mowers, yes I have seen guys put a trailer hitch on them. Isuzu's really aren't made for pulling though, they just seem to pull better when the weight is on the frame.

Thanks I will let you know if I find any deals on a isuzus. I bought a 06 4-door isuzu npr in your neck of the woods a couple months ago and am trying to keep up with brandonv , but I haven't had time to outfit it yet. I can't decide if I am gonna put a sidedump and box, or just a box.
