i'll be honest i didnt do anything with the dump. i almost put it on the road over summer when i was getting work where i could have really used it. but i just used my truck and made taller sides on the trailer to hold more material. i have to do something with the dump next year. either give it some TLC and put it on the road or sell it and buy other equipment with the $ cause i dont just like having it sit.

You shouldn't sell the dump truck just paint get new tires and rims and use it for a year or 2. Then just sell it and get another one or save the money.

the trailer i think was 2200-2300 out the door..right around there if i remember correctly. mechanically the dump is very good. i am torn between selling it for a new dump trailer or selling it for a newer dump truck. 2000+ in yr. but the fixer-upper in me thinks i should hang onto it. worse case, i buy a dump trailer anyways and this would be a nice back-up beast. i will probably keep it as i dont think i would get much $ out of selling it.

What kind of dump is that? You won't really need that GMC dump now, but it is nice to have a backup for plowing especially. For what you have into it, it may be a good thing to have around if you have the room.

the dump trailer is a brand called Dump & Go. i reasearched them last night. they make some nice trailers. I definately plan to spruce up the dump truck and get it on the road. I forget I own it sometimes. I really need to get a shop next. That would be a huge stepping stone

Ya for sure, it would be nice to have a place to put all your equipment. And a place to work on everything!
