    I would either get a 1/2 ton pickup with dump for the regular bed, or a 3/4 or 1 ton with a dump bed. Of course, until I have about 50 more lawns then i have now, it wont be a problem...

    I just bought a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 2WD. I love it, but about a year ago our local fire department bought a new Peterbilt Rescue truck and were selling their old 16' step van for $2,000. Had only 40,000 miles on it. V8 gas, shelves, it would have been perfect. The things under my nose I don't buy!:cry:

    Would love a Super lawn truck but not ready to make payments for the rest of my life plus my wife said no but hell o no .
    If we donot get any rain will not have to worry about using a truck to go cut grass as it is already brown and really dead looking with no chance of rain in forecast only thing they said was 100 degree weather by next week .
