Hmmm, Maybe a 1/2 or 3/4 ton or so (depending on the work you specialize in), with a trailer with high mesh walls (for hauling mulch, bricks, etc.)

Or maybe a truck with the bed removed and replaced with a metal mesh "bed" and ramp.

Just depends on you situation I guess.
If then God so clothe the grass, wich is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more [will he clothe] you, O ye of little faith? (Luke 12:28)

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. (Romans 14:8)

Isuzu cab-over for a small dump truck or flat bed.......

Easy to work on.
Great to drive and get in tight places.
Good fuel mileage, had the 4 cyl turbo with auto trans.
Did ride a little choppy.

Had the 14,500# chassis.... licensed at 16,000# Scaled at over 21,000# out of the pit several times.

Had a conventional cab Ford before...... no comparison.
