My box truck in progress

My winter project. Excited to run out of a box truck for next season.
Will start working on building a ramp for it next week.

Cool deal, give us some specs.

What year, what size box, how many miles, gas or diesel, ect?

Also, if you don't mind, how much $?

real cool, include us on the devlopment.

rcreech, and maple wood on here have some very nice set ups for filling etc. i would lookup their threads and pics. take the time to lay out the way you want and think of as many scenarios and write a list of them before you design.

where you are filling up at, what machine you are using, etc.

nice truck. If your close to Indy check out TKO graphics in Plainfield. They did a wrap for my box truck for around $1000. take advantage of all that space!

02 Chevy 4500 diesel 125K 1 owner truck. They traded it back to dealer they bought it from. 16ft box truck they were asking 10,300 sold it for 8,800.

Once the gate is done. The second thing will be the logos. Will go with a full color picture sorta like rceech has. I really like his set up. He has also given me some good tips.

I use a permagreen. happy to move from my f350 to a box truck. Just never seem to have enough room in the pick up set up.

Well finally an update on my truck. Been slow going been busy with snow, & went back and forth on several different ramps. Ramp should be here hopefully next week. Ended up going with a pre made one. I got the truck back today from having the inside sprayed. If things go right will start on the nurse tank lay out and plumbing on Friday. Here's a couple pictures of the spray liner.

Scorpion spray on liner. They sprayed it right on the wood.
Pretty neat product. They put a more rubber based one for inside the truck.

Well, didn't get as much done as I wanted to today. I had to have a couple plows worked on. I did get my tank rinsed and sterilized & placed in. gonna work on the shelf set up tomorrow, & securing the tank for a bit if it doesn't snow. Will work Monday on the plumbing and pump for the tank. I plan on plumbing a fill line out side the truck, so I don't have to drag a water hose up inside.

Why use the spray liner if it has a wood bottom? Is it mainly for looks or will it give you some protection from pesticides?
