Here are some pics of my new truck. 2007 F-150 v6 reg cab.
did you buy that c&c? interesting. I am curious how the 6 holds up. looks good though you cant see much.
What are you into it for? did you build the bed?
I actually drove this truck to texas to have it done. I live in VA. Long ride but well worth it. The bed cost $2200.
Holy crap thats cheap. I take it you dont bag lawns or have ztrs?
Truck will be outfitted with 2 quick 36, 2 shindawia trimmers 1 stick edger, 1 backpack blower, 1 handheld blower, 2 prolockers, tool box, 2 saftey cones, and water cooler. The front of the truck is getting a full wrap and signs on the back ramps. Total cost for rig including going to texas about $25000 including truck.
Post some pics when you get the signs put on it
That is one productive setup right there! VERY nice, great deal on the bed
That sure beats towing around a trailer all of the time.... Looks great too!!
Nice profit maker there. Especially since you can have a 2 man crew (with 2 walk behinds on it).
The most efficient setup I ever had was a used F-150 6-cylinder with a full size bed that had a full width folding ramp (the type that replaces the tailgate). I had a similar equipment set up (racks and such) except that I could only hold one (1) 36" or 48" walk behind.
Your setup should be very nimble, productive, and, cost efficient. Good job.
