    Here is a truck I just bought.
    It is a GMC W4500 GVW of 14,000, 3.9 lt Isuzu Turbo diesel, auto, exhaust brake and 16ft dump bed.

    Sorry it was getting dark.
    Also I have it lined up to get all the rust fixed with metal and repainted to look like new. We are also going through the entire truck replacing anything that is worn. It will look like new!

    Nice truck gateway. i was looking at a similar truck except it was an Isuzu 14' Landscaping Dump Bed. Anyways that looks like a great truck. Any reason why you didn;t get like a landscaping dump? What year is that and how much did that set you back if you don't mind me asking. LawnInOrdrer

    It is a landscape dump the sides are laying on the bed. The GMC and Isuzu are the same thing only thing different is the emblem.
    It is a 1987 with 124,000 miles.
    It was free I traded my 92 chevy 1500 with 115,000 miles that I did not use for it. Pretty good deal I think!!!
    Thanks!

    Here is a pic from last night of my 2001 f-350 4x4, auto and 2006 8ft Boss V-plow.

    I will be having the GMC lettered before spring and the ford re-lettered before spring also.

    That's a good looking truck and what a great deal! I just bought a 96 GMC cabover like that but mine is a box truck with a dovetail on it and a 350 chevy motor in it. These trucks turn on a dime!
