What to ask when buying a used dump truck?

What questions should I ask when buying a used dump truck? Are there certain parts and areas I should focus on? and others I shouldnt put too much time on?

Not sure asking questions does much good. As with any vehicle, ask to see the maintenance records. Keep in mind that dump trucks tend to have been worked pretty hard. Most of the miles on them have likely been spent towing and hauling, so they're hard use hours, even more so if it's been used to plow. Make sure to check with your insurance company to see how much it will cost to insure it before you buy it and be ready for a pretty hefty registration fee as well. I'm just east of you by the way. That used truck dealer next to Friendly's usually has some decent used dump trucks...forget their name but I'm sure you know where I mean.
