    Space above the office is for storage. Ceiling is 2x10 on 16" centers with advant tec boarding on top. Won't support tons of weight but will be good sized for storing boxes, seed, etc

    Haha after i asked i looked at it again and my imagination got the better of me. I pictured a few plows and 2-3 salters sitting up tucked away for the summer. :)

    i bought a 97 f350 w/8' utility this past winter as a backup plow truck. i was going to buy a bed for it and swap it out...but now i love it. it has a few bottoms that need replacing in the compartments but i keep everything in it. its my favorite truck and it only cost $1500. granted it has 260K but she has a 7.3 powerstroke. i drive it more than my 08'

    Supercuts- I couldnt agree more, Id rather drive it than anything I own, it drives good and its handy to have saws, air compressor, hedge trimmers , shovels and tools and they arent in the way.

    As for cost of the truck, I got a great buy on the truck, sold the original wheels and tires for good money, and traded work for the bed liner and bumpers.

    So lettering, wheels and tires, bumpers, lights, and new body tow mirrors (just added) Maybe 35- $3800. And I love it, Id like to have two more just like it for that price. Only complaint is about 7 mpg all the time.
