Looks great. You'll probably end up covering up your two expanded metal windows. I did the same thing on mine , even using the smaller opening expanded metal and got to much blow out. I ended up covering them up with a piece of rubber, but left the buttom open.

Guess you'll find out soon enough.

This is our leaf collection equip. 3 Self contained ODB vacuums. Ford diesel engines, 25 yard capacity. Bought the at city auctions over the years. New cost over 30K! Paid only 10cents on the dollar. Will suck the blacktop up! LOL. We pull them with Chevy 4500 and 5500 kodiaks.

Here is a link to my truck during leaf season-it's not much because I don't do enough clean-ups to justify a full leaf box and leaf loader.

I really like those rubber strips on the dumps. seems like a nice accident saver. I would love to see more of your trucks / equipment! Love the logo and colors, everything looks good!
