my dealer said they could get one. About 2 weeks ago, they called me saying they have to order the vac system by itself without the engine and custom build the other motor onto it. they said it would be 8000 and i said hell no. i got pissed and i know the service manager really well and he said the best he could do was 8000 and i called it off. I am presently looking for a commercial grade vac with at leased 30hp and a dump trailer or dump truck. Actually found a 2008 Dodge Ram 4500 chassis with a 12 foot dump bed on it with 0 miles for 38,000 out the door. I might pick it up if its still there around october 1st. Its at suburban Chysler dodge jeep in Troy,MI 48048. Its a brand new dealer and it has great reps and one of them knows my dad. The price is around 39,000 sticker, and my dad talked them down to 38 otd. So i will prob pick it up, put a 10ft western wide out to do snow this year.

Nice,
I thought billygoat would build it but oh well, I'm starting to look at fradan now, and my truck will be an 07 chevy 2500 hd 33,651 miles on it and it's going for $17,988 but it's only 2wd(I'm hoping it wont be a problem) and then I'm also buying a 7x14 dump to. Also since my 8 year old honda push mowers shroud blew off I'm buying a toro 21'' proline to.

blly goat doesnt want to have any issues with over vibration on a bigger engine, which i think is a load of shittt, i cant wait to get this truck. I want a dump trailer too if i dont get the dump truck i will prob get a 7x16 dump trailer. Good for you though, its nice to have some cash flow again aftera hard dry spell over winter.
