    Now you need a decent sized trailer and you'll look legit!

    Yeah I know. everything fits nicely on the 5x10. But maybe come spring I will get one.
    Yeah the back bumper. It wasn't chrome just one of the painted gray ones and had a bit of rust starting. These chevys are known for rusty front and back bumpers so thats why I keep both chevys front and back bumpers undercoated and painted the back bumper of the new truck. I will get pics up soon

    Brad, did you ever think about buying a dump instead of another pickup.

    Just curious.

    Yea I'm over in Philly so we don't really get over a foot of snow at all. A few little storms. Next truck will be 4x4 and probably will have a meyer plow. Can't justify a western or fisher.

    Oh yeah thought about it long and hard. But I wanted a heavy pickup first. SInce I had the dump trailer and it does most jobs fine. I really do want a dump and that will probably be the next truck-porbably a 1ton duramax(but thats not for a while) As of now I do more basic landscape jobs rather than huge walls renovations etc. Also I haven't found a shop/house/plot of land yet and just don't have the room for a dump.
    yeah not much more than us probably. westerens are not much more than meyers but I dunno really everyone here uses meyer and thats just what I decided

    Man if that 5x10 works for you then don't get a bigger trailer. There are many benifits for a small trailer. I know my 20 footer can be a p.i.t.a to turn around. Your operation looks good man. Keep those trucks and run em into the ground.

    As I stated above I Painted the back bumper of the new truck. It wasn't chrome just one of the painted gray ones and had a bit of rust starting. These chevys are known for rusty front and back bumpers so thats why I also keep both chevys front and back bumpers undercoated. I used black rustoleum mixed with a paint hardeer. Turned out pretty nice IMO
