    Hello,
    Just finished my box truck and thought I would post some photos. This truck is equipped for mowing and fertilization. It has a set of Safe-T Ramps from USA ramps on the back. No this is not a endorsement for safe-t ramps. I recommend them but only if you do some extra work to secure them on your truck with some extra brackets. If not they wont really work for your lawn care needs. All of the graphics are vinyl lettering. If you have any questions let me know. I will have some pics of the inside soon.

    That looks real good! Tell us more about the truck-year, motor, mpg, box length. Got any pics of the ramp? I went with a dovetail and ramp set-up on my Isuzu but always interested in other set-ups. Show us all the pics that you have.
