Why do you like the side door on the box? What do yall typically use it for? Do you need to access inside without using the back door?
Our maint crew does full service stuff so they're in and out of the truck a lot, sometimes I don't think they'd need to drop the big door and also if you need something at the front of the truck and it's full of mowers you're kind of stuck. Our construction crew will use the front door for filling the truck be it plants, bags of cement or other such things that we can't unload on the site through the back. We have a telehandler at the shop so we can reach all the way in to place heavy pallets in the front but rarely have it on job site so we'll off load through the side door.
