I may go a simple graphics route on the dually and have the Chevy match. Or depending on how the rest of the year goes, wrap them both.

Hey Krazy, have you heard of the auction site Purple Wave? You might look on there if you are looking for new equipment. A friend of mine just told me about the site and there is a t300 bobcat on there that reminded me of your need for a bigger skid.

New truck looks great also, throw some helper springs on there, or airbags and that would be a great hauler!

Nice truck - we have a gmc 2500 non hd with the same drivetrain and it hauls beautifully. Feels pretty utilitarian from the drivers seat compared to the dodges but the way they hang the rear end on the leafs coupled with the gm ifs makes it feel better towing than the dodges do empty. Keep an eye on the brake lines and fuel pump though. 6.9 mpg here with a dump insert and 20ft enclosed trailer.

I think you're better off with the Chevy. I believe you can pop that trim off with no holes

The rear flares are in the back seat. Need new double stuck tape.

Tis the season for bidding. Submitted a bid for spring/fall cleanups & weekly bed maintenance at the Highschool we did the landscaping for last year. They wanted the landscaping in the budget, so it had to go out to bid. Well got the call today, they decided to go with us since we installed the landscaping. Woohoo
