    Now you just need to buy something to justify a 10 ton trailer and 1 ton truck. You could probably figure out a way to spend 100k on a skid steer.

    House values differ wildly from state to state town to town for all know that may be a 5000 sqft mansion. More realistically its probably an average home for your area and if so that's great I wish you could get into the housing market here for that price. 2007 just before the crash 1 acre building lots were selling for 300k in my town. Hence I own land but have no ability to build on it yet the costs are so prohibitive. But the rewards are also nice living here there are 29,000 properties just in my home town and easily 100,000 in my overall range so there is plenty of work to be had.

    You want my honest opinion? It's a nice truck but I think your ego got the best of you.

    I'm still reading through your post here. Did you already have a CDL or did you get one when you bought your gooseneck. I had to get one when I purchased my 20' dump trailer. The ticket for not having the correct license type is $1500.

    Also, for gooseneck hitches Una-Goose is the best money can buy. They are rated at 40,000 lbs. I bent two hitches before I installed a Una-Goose.
