    yes i will have it lettered, i'm going to make sure the truck its just how i want it before i put the finishing touch of lettering.
    not really top of the list. right now i'm at the point of either dropping some lawns or adding a helper so advertising isn't at the top of the list just yet. may put my name on the cab for now and add the side of the box advertisement later

    looks like it works perfect, way to be original. can you dump from the cab and roll the truck up so it dumps cleaner? I know when my truck is loaded I like to roll as I dump so it doesnt pile up and get stuck in the back

    I don't know how I missed this project when you were doing it, but I just saw it. That is an AWESOME job! Any changes in the last few months?

    no big changes to the truck. got it my sign on the side(I thought I had uploaded them so i'll do it soon), repainted the front of the truck, had to replace the pulleys on the gate assist(I had used garage door pulleys they made it about half the summer. got some high quality pulleys from a farm store and its amazing how much smoother they are). I added another spring on the drivers side to aid the lifting of the ramp. made some hooks for the blowers and installed a trimmer trap. just a bunch of odds and ends that needed updating.

    i'll take some pics next few days and get them uploaded. been bizy repainting a old boss plow and my walker deck. lots to do!
