    Looks good, you should get some air shocks for the back end of that truck. JMO

    a peice of chain link fence, laid down on the bed, tow chain tied off and when you get to the dump have the loader operator pull it out. You can also do the same thing with a heavy duty tarp, or a tire ... my prefered method is to use a 7 1/2x12 dump trailer with six foot sides .... press a button and ten seconds later a 6,000 pound cube of leaves drops out intact . lol

    Won't do him any good. Still overloading the truck. Go with a 3/4 ton truck.

    The truck is actually rated for 1300 lbs or so, so that's right around it's limit. I have a dump trailer that I'm going to be using in the future.

    well.. the leaf sucker from hell went back to hell today. Engine completely locked up. I think the piston cracked and scored the cylinder. Gotta tear it apart tonight. Oh well...

    yeah more pics. A 3/4 ton truck would be nice, I have heard that older 150s like mine have a high weight and towing capacity on them. 3/4 ton is next truck for me though
