    Well I went with the F-550. They ended up doing everything for me. They are taking the body off their truck, taking the truck to my body shop, and letting me use my truck until the new truck is done. I went with a 2012 F-550 crew cab 4x4 6.7 diesel. payload plus package, 19500 gvw. For the body we are having a 12' aluminum dump body custom made for us. Itll have 48 inch sides.

    Ill post pics when it gets done in about 2 weeks.

    Nice truck I like that. Iended up going with Preston Ford here on the shore for the truck and Meadows Hydraulics for the body. Preston beat Mike by about 1800 bucks plus with Preston I dont have to go anywhere, they are taking my new truck to meadows and bringing it to me when done I just keep on driving my old one until its done. Mike was great though gave me a ton of info and when I let him know I wasnt using him he was still cool about it.
