    Hey just wanted to know where the best place is on a dump truck to put the lettering on. I'm going to be buying a 99 GMC Flatbed with 2ft sides on the back, but plan on making them 3ft high to hold more. Currently the landscaper that owns it has his lettering on the doors, but it seems its too small to see it from a distance. He's getting the lettering taken off by tommorow.
    Otherwise I was thinking of getting something made up and just put it on the door's and thats all, but would maybe instead like to put something on the sides of the dumper part so i could be bigger and visable to see.

    For better visability i would do the sides of the dump body.you can have a sign place letter up some kind of plastic pannel and use threeM vinyl to letter.Then just screw it on you your wood sides.If you buy another truck in a year and trade this one in your just take your sign to the other truck.

    I have signs on the side of the dump truck. Another good place is on the rear door/tailgate of the truck, just to put your name and number on. Good advertising when sitting in traffic.

    Yeah I could get a couple cans of spray paint and spray my name on the side of the truck with the number and call myself Scrubs INC :D
    Ill consider that Idea of screwing something to the sides of the dumper for my sign. Have to see how much it will all be cause right now I dont have a design made up yet.

    only in TN would you see "shag nasty lawncare" lol. the confederate flag on top sums it all up.
  10. That would be "Crawdad Holler, TN", I thing Nashville and Memphis have indoor plumbing and electric.

    Crawdad, after looking at the many pics you have posted, boy I know I am not coming to visit.

    I might get hunted by the beagle thinking I was a foreigner.
