    I actually don't have the grille guard on the truck anymore. It got in an accident last november and the grille guard has been laying on the side of my garage since. I really need to put it back on but I just keep forgetting. I think it looked badass when I had the grille guard on. Make sure you get a good one like a ranch hand if you go that route. What I eventually want to do is get replacement front and rear bumpers. It looks beast.
    Thanks man. Right now we are up to about 60 houses, 4 offices, and that one large HOA we maintain. I am hoping to be starting the maintenance on that apartment complex in a month or so.
    Thanks. Season has been great for us. I am looking forward to see what next year brings.

    If you look close there are two trailers parked behind the maintenance trailers. I still have the 20 and 12' trailers with 4' sides. Just don't use it for mowing because it's too damn big and heavy. The 16' trailer gets pulled with the f250 and the 12' is pulled with my f150.

    I actually like my 12' tandem. Next year I might sell my 12' single axle to buy another 16' but idk. No dumps for me. Next truck I'm getting is going to be a chevy 2500hd, no dumps for me.
