    well been tossing the idea around of getting a NPR or box truck for mowing.

    have a buddy that owns a used car lot, he bought a NPR from a local plumbing company and well he cant figure out what to do do with it. hes selling it to me for what he paid for it.

    it has a 14' box on it. here is the issue. it doesnt have a roll up door in the back. it has barn doors. any ideas to overcome this little hiccup!

    I see the supreme bodies around here with ramps up and door open. That's what I would do, maybe paint the floor with some sand mixed in incase it rains.

    Wouldn't be hard to just put in a garage door.

    as stated above,you can usually just install a roll-up door ,depending on how your box was constructed .

    Check out superlawntrucks.com. That's what we run, and they are great for lawn maintenance. Very versatile, decent fuel economy, and no trailer to pull.
