How do you like your FRR? I don't see many out there, but I have been really happy with our FRR. Mine now has 165k miles and still haven't done a brake job on it. I have had some trouble out of the cables from the manual shifter. We seem to have some sort of little problem out of them every once in a while.

Love it......except for the 19500 GVW. ours has 135K still original brakes. The exhaust brake is a service brake savior!

I purchased the bumper assembly from the S-n-G dealer and welded that to the end of the frame rails. We fabricated mounts for the fenders and mud flaps. I decided to purchase two Weatherguard under mount tool boxes ($900 ) for tarp, chain and hold down storage.

The power and control connections are very simple. The control box for the hoist and winch can be operated from the cab of from the ground via a remote outlet jack.

At this point I'm into the truck for $27,000 . When I pickup the first 15yd can next week we'll be at 30G's.

I think the whole idea will work well for us since most of our work is on confined sites and the truck will easily pull my trailer and mini-excavator or skidsteer.

Beside the fact that my dump trailer is a pain in the A$$ and I hate dumpster rentals

Hi I realize this post is not that recent, but I'm curious if you can just tell me how much weight you can carry in your 12 yard can with this truck? I have a bin rental service up in Canada, and was thinking of switching to a COE truck system with a 19500 GVW. I'm just trying to figure out my payload capabilities to see if it makes sense for me or not. Any info you can provide me with is much appreciated!
