SP Landscaping-Find the 5.9 too underpowered I take it?

dustycedar- I'm thinking of trying to get him down some more. Right now he's at $36k with the electric tarp and roller setup installed as well as a full hitch plate with pintle hook, electric plug, etc installed.

Oh your FL70 is up to 52k? That is a light engine for that truck wow. Wish I could find the 7.2 Cat or something similar. Having a hard time finding much else to be honest, especially for the money/condition.

its a 6 wheeler with a drop axle. 12,000 front 21,000 rear and 20,000 pusher. only problem is i can only registered it for 48,000 because the axle distance is too short but that doesnt stop me from overloading the **** out of her. Hell before i got this truck i would pull out of the gravel bank in my 03 1 ton duramax weighing in at a cool 21,000lbs ( gross is 12,000) imagine that ticket....
