    Thanx! I still need to get a rail welded around the top to attach my bubgees to when we have the tarp on.

    put a low profile tarp system on it! Much better investment and rolls up before and after each job so its out of the way. You can mount it right in the top rail of the bed, out of the way of your wheel barrels.

    Hm Im not familiar with that. It has a roll up tarp on it now. It mounted just behind the wheel borrows and rolls back to the back of the truck. We just dont have anywhere to hook the back of the tarp to now.

    That side door is awesome never seen one with something like that, must make loading so much easier and still be able to hold a lot more than a short sided fold down style.

    How much did that dump body run you if you don't mind I'd definitley consider something like that?

    The side door is great, we love it. My last dump body had it as well. Its worth a million bucks on some jobs.

    What have you used the truck for so far? How is it treating you?

    Ive loaded it with mulch, topsoil and laves so far.

    Im taking it to my local dealer to have the driver door checked out. There is some wind noise coming in from that side. I think maybe a seal isnt quite right. Besides that its doing great.
