Chris, you can carry up to and 119 gal tank without needing to get a haz mat endorsement on your license or a placard for the truck.

And that is the clean fill on top there LOL! Those holes were big and the junk in them is not pretty LOL! I was really hoping for some loam but that was a no go. Just had to work with what I had.

All that nice green grass has me fantasizing about a fresh rear tire on my dirt bike ripping through the gears. I hate golfers.

I'm liking the new avatar Talus So when does my new operator start slinging dirt for me?

krazy- I know that being the owner is not all fun, but after this week I took a step back to look at things and all I could think was "Dang! This week sure isn't one of my better ones!" LOL Hopefully now that everything broke in one week, I should be good for another couple days or so before something else happens

Hey Andrew did you see on the 2011 Ford F450 pick ups their putting 17" tire on it, and they dropped the GVW from 14500 on the '08''10s to 13050 on the '11s! Me and my uncle couldn't believe that when we saw one!

Shoot we saw a 2011 F350 pick up and its GVW was higher than the F450 pick up (only by 250lbs but still)

I'm not bashing Ford either (I may say I'm a GM guy but I still love Ford, how can you not?), I actually can't believe they did that.

Now the F450 pick up is basically pointless, might as well buy a F350. Or a F450 C&C.

Ya, I'm not impressed with the changes. Are the 550s rated the same as well? If they aren't I'm going to have to move to 350s. As it is, I'm gearing up to just move my equipment on a tag trailer behind a dump truck. Based on my current weight I'm into the apportioned plates and IFTA fuel taxes (fun fact I just learned and had to adjust for) and a CDL. Either way, the only advantage my setup has over the dump/tag is that I can use my truck as a daily driver- I even get the same mileage as a dump When I'm towing...

Get your self a nice little hook lift and a tag trailer. Then you can haul both at once . Then get yourself a nice 3/4 ton truck.
