    Well due to being down from my truck Thurs & Fri, I've been playing catchup all weekend. To think, I was still working a regular 9-5 this time last year!

    That would be my dream truck also... but a chevy!!!:laugh: The dump inserts are nice, especially if their aluminum, wont every rust. Also you could put a replacement tailgate spreader on, if you have a way to load it. Now with the ameri-deck, they don't make replacement tailgate spreaders so a vee box would be required but you could drop the deck at ground level, and load it by hand. Also, if a job requires you to pick up brush or edge flower beds, get a wheelbarrow, load it up and dump it on the deck that's on the ground. That's way easier than trying to lift it up to the dump insert. I would go for the ameri-deck if you trying to decide. You would probably be the only one in your area with it, great way to stand out! :cool2: Hope this helps! :waving:

    Nah this one is a gas job for now, I'm sure he'll have that diesel in the next few years if he keeps up this rate - not to mention I'll be an employee :laugh:

    I told you before bud, great looking truck. Can't wait to see it lettered up, going to be awesome! Time for a backrack, spray in bedliner & your cab lights!

    That is one sweet truck :clapping:

    Pretty sure once you get the insert you'll wonder how you worked without it :laugh:

    Nope! 6.2 V8 gas. Thanks man!
    Yeah probably! I guess we'll see what happens, I want something in it by fall.

    Hey man consider yourself the first foreman I hire! It gets lettered Thursday thankfully. There's too much I want to do to it :dizzy:

    Yeah tell me about it. I'm getting the bedliner sprayed and the body/frame undercoated in the next month.
    Honestly I love it. The only reason I bought the 350 was due to my dealer screwing me over on a 250 I was promised. I took my business elsewhere and found a very large dealer that had three of these 350's. The price difference was about $900. But my payload went from 3700lbs in the 250 to 4950 in the 350, which I am VERY happy about.

    Thanks man! Yeah I want one by fall clean-up time. Its still a personal truck too so I think the low pro aluminum would look nice, just keep the sides on in the fall and for mulch. Plus it only weighs like 500 pounds.

    Thanks bud I appreciate it!
