    Well got a few days in driving my new Isuzu landscaper truck... So far I like it, not head over heals in love with it, but I do like it!

    I spend Sunday making a rack to hold a weedeater and my waterjug. Also modified the top basket to make it easier to get my blower in and out of it.

    Compaired to my 61/2 by 16 foot trailer, this truck has more room on it than I need! But I know I will find times where I need all this space and more - such as next fall when I aerate or when I do bimonthly fertilzer applications....

    Anyone want to know first impressions of the truck or anything else, ask away

    I love and hate them............love the ability to move around in one (new 4500's are just as good now)

    hate: can't haul much (i know there are larger models but based on the "regular" or whatever you want to call it that my previous company had) and my biggest issue is SAFETY

    Last picture.....

    I washed it yesterday after I got done outfitting it, Put some tire shine on the tires, touched up the paint on the bed here and there where a little rust was showing - new truck and the bed already had some scratches in the paint with rust forming. Last week the first place I went after picking it up was to have the windows tinted... I think it looks good, but the tint is really too dark especially at night.
