My thoughts exactly

Just a few thoughts from when we were searching for a truck.... Based on the research we did ( and this was 5 years or so ago, so this may have changed), but hooklifts typically had a higher dump angle which was a huge plus, but the roll-offs had higher capacity for carrying/winching weight. Some roll off trucks now have hydraulic/manual dovetails that fold under, so when you are hauling dirt/stone/mulch etc. you can get a high dump angle like the hooklifts.

Looks really great man! I think you said you guys were doing that yourselves? What kind of paint did you use? Did you use air guns? Did you sandblast it or how did you get the old finish off? Did you use someone else's equipment to do that or did you have the stuff? Sorry for all the ??'s, just a curious guy lol. Looks awesome as always!
