    So Isuzu is putting their badge on that line of GM trucks now?
    By the way, not to be nosey but didnt you sell out and go to work for Brickman? How was that experience....looks like you can't get rid of the entreprenourial bug. Nice truck too.

    I didnt sell out, I didnt take the Brickman offer either. I took a temporary sales position to pay the bills while I recovered from a back injury.BTW I know its a nice truck!

    what is it that you guys do down there to be able to call that a money maker?
    Not being rude, but what do you use it for? landscaping? delivery for people who call? Our landscape supply shops charge $25 for delivery, and free over 8 yards, I couldn't be bothered to drive it my self.

    ANY dump truck is a huge money pit but its a cost of doing buisness sadly.

    Its a 7500 chasis, This is my second single axle. My other truck is a money pit, but I think it is because I overload it every time. So now its more light duty. I also use it to run a delivery service. I have several contracts with local retailers hauling sand, stone, etc. Believe me I dont do any delivery for free and niether does anyone else!
