    I love the utility body trucks, but my wife wants me to get a box truck. Lol

    Box truck is good to have, but the only thing is you to get commercial insurance though. More $$$$ in someone else pocket. I'll stick with what I have unless the jobs I get requires me to have it.:usflag:

    Commercial auto insurance isn't that bad, but the registration and inspections run at least 500 dollars more per year. Just the cost if business when you run with the big boys.

    For work that you do krazy, a box truck would be perfect. U got the dodge with a gooseneck for hauling, get a 12-16" box truck with a ramp for a nice enclosed (without trailer) lawn set up. Store ur irrigation pipes ontop on. Racks or on the ceiling and build shelves for everything in the front of the box.

    Did u ever make the investment on the sand bagging attachment or are u waiting to sell your mustang?

    That would be a great investment if you have the sand avaiable(beach i presume) and the contracts. Looked like a pretty efficent piece of artilery when i saw it on youtube, a lot of parts moving when you tighten the bags, look out for breakdowns that would put you pretty much out of business without being able to have a part easily accesable and your whole op on hold until it gets fixed.

    Nope. Enterprise doesnt put receivers. They dont want u pulling trailers. I ran around looking at jobs all day. Working on bids for two full house demolitions and a park renovation. Plus we started the paperwork today to incorporate my new company. Kajun Flood Workz llc.

    love dodge, i own dodge, but the new 1500's just look small and not heavy duty at all. I love the look of the 2500 and up, but 1500 trucks are lacking the muscle look they need.


    How do you like your 3500? I think i may buy a srw 3500 and put an aluminum insert in for next year. Anything you would have done differently if you ordered your truck again? Would you have ordered the same cab that you did, if you had to do it all over again. I like the big cab but the length of the truck is almost 4 feet longer than with a crew cab. What do you think?
