    I've had these in 3 different trucks, and highly recommend them. Spilled a full 44 oz drink on them once, and carefully removed the cover with nothing leaking through. seatsavers.com

    The only thing that sees any action is from the hitch back. Ive got trailers and a gooseneck for working off of. nothing in the bed is a strict rule, and if it gets scratched its comming outta someones pay. lol. I could care less if the trailers get normal scratches and dings, just not the truck. its usually a pull and park truck, meaning i pull a trailerwith all the equipment to big sites and it is parked all day except for lunch. only go on residential routes a few times a week and with each lawn taking me and the guys(mainly the guys, cause i figured out how to work the DVD player finally lol) less than 15 minutes the Cummins is running all day. I dont shut it down 15 times a day or more in between jobs. only other thing i may do to it is put a Nice Steel flatbed on it with fuel tanks for equipment. but i dunno all that stuff is mounted on the trailers now and i really like the new dually body style on this truck the way it goes down the whole length of the bed.

    thats a good looking truck, and it looks like it could pull down a house

    Yeah its really stout. I went from a 98 Ram 1500 long bed regular cab to this thing... major shock. with the gear reductions it will pull almost 6,000 pounds more than stock.

    It actually does have the extra suspension and the electric hook ups in the front. Don't really have much snow here but had it put on just in case...
