Insurance wanted $6500 but I got them down to $4500. I'm anxious to get back on the road.......just not in this one.

Simulators I have but I just haven't had time to put them on. I plan to add underbody boxes too and thinking of something to go on top of that box behind the cab. I like the idea of a fuel tank for off road diesel but I'll have to wait and see if that is really a need or not. Still needs lettering etc but its a little busy right now.

Random: I'm annoyed by the diamond plate box. I thought it would be smooth but was not discussed. Now if I don't match with the underbody boxes it will probably look ******ed. Prefer polished stainless but this is a manufactured box so what you get is what you get, not really any options.

I am not a fan of the boxes either but the truck looks good. My heart sank when I saw the International,I cannot imagine how you must have felt.I am glad to see you are back to work.

By the way,how long is the bed on the C4500?

The bed is 11'.......I wanted 12' but had to sacrifice for the box behind the cab. Like I said though, I'm not done with the truck. Its in working condition for the time being.

truck looks good, sorry about the international. woul it be possible to put some spacers under the box to raise it a bit, maybe make room for a box or tank underneath it?
