    Well I have been waiting along time for this day. I finally went out a bought a dump truck. Its a 2003 Ford F-350 With a 7.3. Extended cab. 196,000 miles. I traded a small landscaping job and cash for the truck!! Let me know what you think!! Also threw in some pics of it working on the first day!!

    Thats for sure!! I got two other diesels with the 7.3's and one has over 400K!!
    I still cannot believe that it runs. It was one of my everyday trucks, but now it is getting replaced by this new truck.

    Lookin' good! I used to have that truck and setup Only difference was mine had sides on the dump. I hated only being able to haul max 3 yards and having almost a yard gone by the time i was ready to lay the mulch...
    Just upgraded to a bigger truck....better for plowing and more capacity to haul and tow.
    May i ask you approx. how much you paid for it?

    I got a crazy good deal on it. I layed down 5 yards of mulch and $4500 cash and got the truck. Currently we are negotiating on a skid loader as well. Lookin to add another one to the company. It would be the next size up from what I already have. The skidder is an S300 with every option and 400 hrs
