    It's different, but I'd rather have something with a ramp that can be flush with the back of the truck. That's just extra length for nothing.

    But hey, I'm not the one who has to like it! ;)

    Best of luck with it.

    Actually that dove tail ramp can be used to haul pine straw and other materials. Down here in this part of GA most lawn maintenance companies mulch or blow out the clippings, so there is no real need to tow a trailer behind a dump truck or pick up just to be hauling clippings to the dump. I did that up North in MA for about 15 years...this set up is going to be sweet! Compact maintenance vehicle/shop all in one. Easier to get around sub divisions and traffic.

    Nice truck. Spent all day looking at them on the internet as it was a rain day. Keeps us posted as to how it works out.
