    Yea the trailer will be different, i was running a 12' last year. Trying to mainly get large acreage commercial contracts this season, along with some landscape installs.

    What truck did you have before the pictured one? Sounds like you are going through quite an upgrade from the 12' to that nice trailer/truck combo. Good luck this year. Got any more pics of the truck?
