    I was planning on buying a Box truck but still havent found one.

    I have a old 1988 Chevrolet extra cab truck. The front seat is a split bench.
    So my idea is to take out all the seats except the drivers. Then I could store my trimmer and blower etc inside the cab. I have a tool bos that I can lock in the bed. The only thing that would be in the bed is the mowers which I could make covers for so I could cover them at night.

    What do you fellers think?

    here are my thoughts, I hope you don't ever need assistance with a job since you won't have anywhere for someone to sit. I also would hate to get in that truck after it has been sitting in the sun with that gas powered smell in it. I say invest 400 bucks in a small trailer...

    I have to ask a question....

    What are you using now? Why the sudden need for a $65K truck?

    Ditto - on the surface, it may sound like a good idea, but you don't want to limit yourself because you did something crazy like that with your truck.

    That may be but why do you feel as though you need a box truck? Have you looked at the costs associated with a purchase like this? Things like insurance, fuel and maintenace?
