My New Isuzu NPR

I just got my first Isuzu last Friday. I am in the process of setting it up and don't currently have any pictures of the inside. Any advice from anyone who has one? I have the fuel station mounted on the truck, it was on the left and got it moved to the right. I also have the dump body between the cab and box. The last picture is what it is going to look like with graphics.

Nice truck. Is it a diesel or gas? What was the total price you paid for it?

It is a gas truck. The diesel trucks only get a mpg better with the new emissions standards and they are more expensive. Plus diesel cost more for only 1 mpg better. Not worth it.

Lets just say, the truck was expensive

It is a 16' box, 2' dump body, and a 2' dovetail with a 7' ramp

Without the graphics and taxes it would be right at that mark but I expect to get many years of service out of it. I expect to put less than 20,000 miles a year on it so I shouldn't have any major problems with it for at least 8 years or at 150,000 miles (new engine or new transmission). By then it would have paid for itself and I just keep running it as long as its practical .

Nice truck, looks like it'll be a great set-up. I've never seen the small dump body like that between the cab and box. look forward to seeing pictures of it all set up inside
