    gotta love that old dump!!< i love seeing guys in there $60,000 new 3500 1 ton diesel dumps , i dont think they understand all they need to do is buy a nice running old dump put a few grand into it and make it look nice, and they can put the other $50,000 + in the bank , they will both do the same thing in the end.

    nice truck and box!

    Thanks. It's a 93 Dodge D350, Cummins diesel, with 100K on it. I got it for $5000 and it needed nothing plus has no body rust.
