Krazy,

Maybe it's not my position to pry but what exactly are you looking for in another truck? Are you getting by just fine with you dodge?

I know we run completely different operations, but from what i can tell you seem to do a little of everything (mowing, installs, irrigation, tree work etc). Your Dodge seems to be handling all the work just fine, why not try to squeeze through another season, save up some dough and buy a truck in excellent condition?

NOW, if that's just not an option-i will be the first to tell you that having a backup truck is a life-saver! A simple rule that i try to follow when making purchases is what i call "multiple functions" rule. If possible i try no to buy anything that can only be used for one purpose. My suggestion is to get yourself a second dually. I just don't want to see you waist time and money on a project truck of which time you don't and won't have much of when the season officially starts.

just watching out for yah man

Think im gunna hold out look for an extended cab long bed 3/4 ton for use as a mowing/ backup truck. Gas or diesel doesnt matter. Or even a reg cab long bed.

AFTER: i cut a new edge to seperate the beds from the turf and so the mulch would stay put around the edges. Trimmed some shrubs and de-weeded the beds.
