Your work looks good. You will love having a dump truck. Especially one that has a square front on the dump bed. I wish mine did.

lol im fully aware that gas trucks are cheaper, and cheaper to fix in most cases, But the lousy fuel mileage your going to get with a heavy under powered dump truck is going to out weigh the cost of the diesel fast. You will be lucky to see 6mpg towing with that truck.

Brickman can afford to run gas trucks because they replace them every couple years, and make millions a year doing maintenance.

Also i know all the big company's around you, 90% of them run diesels.

I could care less how you run your company, Im just saying your argument for running a gas truck because you say it's cheaper is just not true. I should know i have 3 trucks with big block gas motors and all of them get 6mpg at best while towing, My Cummins is seeing 14+.

And yes i do know everything. Thanks for noticing.
