    Hey everyone, Last weekend I finally bit the bullet and bought my first new truck a 2003 F350 psd. After using a 4 cylinder Toyota for a few seasons you can only imagine how much fun I've had pulling the trailer around this week. I'm hoping to add signage and a dump insert by next spring. It's funny how new toys can revitalize your excitement in your job. Best wishes to all.


    -Dave

    Whoa! Talk about going from beer to champagne? That F350 with the Power Stroke is a great truck. I love mine and wouldn't give it up for the world.

    Congrats on your new investment:D

    That's what I'm hoping to get for Christmas.:D The little Ford Explorer has it's hands full especially with the 200 gallon spray unit. Gonna try to get a truck sometime next year but will probably be used. Have to stay within the means.:)

    Congratulations.

    Nothing looks more professional than having a clean, new truck. I switched over from a Toyota to Sierras in 1995. It was nice to be able to see past the trailer in the mirrors.

    ...and remember, when you get the first scratch, keep telling yourself "this is a work truck, this is a work truck..."
