In all honesty - the Christmas light idea is a really good idea. Not a service for me, but it's a great idea.

My old man has been buying and flipping these trucks for a while now. Verizon recently started CUTTING the bucket off of the boom (they say for liability reasons). My truck, the one in the picture has had the bucket cut. The truck behind it is one that my dad got for himself which does have the cherry picker fully intact. I don't need the cherry picker, I need to get the truck's weight down as low as possible so I can pull the equipment trailer with equipment. This truck will be used about 2 days a week, certain aspects of our work require an array of tools on the first 2 days we're there.

they have all their trucks at auction. 300 to 500 units at one auction, usually once a month, near State College. I think last week they had 150 of these 3500HD utility bodies. Some do not run, some have lost keys, and most are in great condition.

From these dual wheel 3500HD, to pick ups. Some vans. And even some bigger utility bodies.

The 3500 HD are automatics, with 454 gasers.

Smart move, make sure you get tie downs on the floor and wall tracks for fastening hanging tools. Don't get white walls, go for 3!8 plywood walls and don't forget a roof vent.

zedo got any pics of the inside of your trailer? I seriously dont know how anyone lives without a jobsite trailer. For instance my crew was on a paver job on an older home they had run to outside faucets with 3/4 poly threw the lawn my just were finishing up and pounded 3 spikes threw the poly line there I was back to the hardware store to get fittings and pipe our box truck is a catch all for all the construction debris just brought it home to spray my lawn and there was 10 rolls of left over sod a tiller and a **** load of tools that I couldn't find its insane. Even with the side boxes on the 4500 its not enough space I will leave the tools in there so they have extras break a shovel or rake bam they got one no calling me asking me to bring out tools I could've paid for a nice trailer by now with the wasted time this season alone.

Ramp door, steel shelving on left side, 8'l x 2'w x 5' h. Track at mid height, filing cabinet and pee pail. The rest you'll figure out, its just about what tools you have and how often you use them that the trailer gets organized.

ps, you type worse than me.
