None of this happy holidays bs.
Those are cool! Ya I had mine customized inside with a saying, thanks for your business, then my name and company logo and then I signed them all.

Great work man! I read threw the whole thread over the past week, and nice work, and sharp trucks and equipment! We are both the same age and i love to see guys like us who work hard and have great success! And i had a question about your dump truck, how does it do when you load it around 5 tons, does it grunt to lift it at all? I had an electric over hydro on my f-superduty and the muncie pump ran off the fan belt and after changing clutch packs every year (because they would wear out every five dumps lol) it wouldnt pick up 2 tons, but mine has a 5 speed tranny so i put a pto pump on it and it will lift way more than you can put on the truck with ease 6+ tons (i only haul 5 or so on it) but i understand yours is electric and i was just wondering how it does, my ez dump is electric but doesnt have the pump i seen on yours in your pics (mine will do like 2 ton its on a 3/4 ton pickup) sorry for the long post, but once again nice work man!

Most I ever put in it was like 4.5 ton and thats way over capacity. Truck holds it fine and dumps it fine never struggled at all but when I have that big of a load the truck itself driving has alot of trouble. We have alot of hilly terrain here and the truck struggles going up hills loaded.

I hate overloading our one ton as well, it seems to happen more than it should with us but mine has 10 lug wheels so it will hold a good 5 ton and drive great (i know ill catch heck for saying that we haul 5 ton lol) but hey we buy them to work right? And great pics ! I love that 3500 and you may have answered before but is it 4x4?

I know whats hard to find these days is a 4x4 5speed one ton pto dump, ive been searching for a while and you can always find the older late 80's chevys, but it seems no one uses the pto dumps in newer trucks as much, ive found a bunch of 2wd but not any 4x4 close to me any way, i was at the gie expo looking at the chevy booth, checking out a brand new 3500 (and drooling lol) and i had heard that the automatic alison tranny has a place on the side of it for a pto, and i asked the sales rep about it, and the guy looks at me and says "Pto ? what are you talking about" 3 reps later this older gentleman said that they do but something about all of them will have the plate but something about the vin # has to have a certain # or it wont actually have the plate hook up, but he said they work well winches etc. but he didn't know about a dump body? You ever have any experience with that? Or know someone who has tht set up?
