    That's pretty good if you can fit ten yards in there. What size is it? I'm debating between dump trailer an another pick up or a high side dump truck right now and both have a lot of pros and cons. A buddy of mine I went to school with works out of blue bell, Phil g something, he's got a real Italian last name I can never spell correct lol but he drives a grey dodge pick up and big grey enclosed. But blue bell is a nice area once in a while I work out that way, I'm from northeast philly right near Abington.

    Yea Phil is the man but your right with a dump truck holding more and pulling more than a pick up and that's what I'm leaning towards. I know my pick up now is always overloaded and its even worse in the winter with a salt spreader in the back. I hath ink I'm leaning towards a 450/4500 series dump because you can hold a good amount of weight but the truck is still small enough to plow and be used in small jobs.

    Nice work Brandon, how's that Ford holding up? I just brought myself a 16ft box truck. Go and check it out on my thread. All I need to do is put a dovetail on it. :dancing:
