Ram Promaster ?

Anyone running a promaster chasis cab. I am wondering how they are for a mowing maintenance set up. http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/ram_promaster/#chassis_cab

Wondering the same thing, seems like a perfect mowing setup and much cheaper than a cab over style.

Yeah that probably would be a good idea. I don't know I may have to make this my next set up.

That would probably be at least 15k for aluminum

That's a really nice set-up, first time I've seen a dovetail setup on one.

Front wheel drive, only available engine is a gas V6. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems like an overgrown minivan. I'd question its effectiveness as a commercial truck without some testimonials from owners of this truck.

That doesn't mean anything. Gearing is everything.
