    Selling my Skidsteer to purchase a boxtruck and upgrade some trimmers/mowers.

    Seems like most common size is 14' box.
    Would I be able to squeeze my walker and 2x ztrs(46" & maybe a 52") in a 14' box. I realize they are a lot wider than a reg enclosed trailer. I used to squeeze a 32" w/b, 46" lazer z, 38" ztr and 21" in my old 6.5x14 enclosed trailer.

    Found a pretty good deal on a 96' NPR diesel with 14' box. 174k miles. Truck is in immaculate shape,plus its BLUE. Everyone has white around here and I want to stand out. My new logo would look awesome on this truck. Asking $4800obo. It would be a 10hr round trip to get it.

    Wht y'all think?

    Krazy do you have a Ryder truck dealer around you. There truck are pmed on time and better then buying a old truck and not know what you are getting into. That truck 17 years old. I don't know if I would touch it

    Or I found a 99' w/ 5.7gas engine. 149k miles
    16ft box, dovetail, ladder/pipe rack on top for $4k
    Being its flat land here. I would prefer the gas engine with larger box and dovetail.

    I'd say the '99 is a steal for what you're getting. You might have to drop a tranny in there in the future but otherwise you should be good to go.

    I would buy either one of those in a heartbeat. I prefer diesel though.

    Stick with the gasser, anybody can get parts and work on it. Finding an Isuzu dealer to work on your diesel can be costly....Oh yea I like white...

    I have a 16' box on mine and put a 72" scag , 52" scag and 42" hustler in mine. The 52" scag wheels hang down the dove tail. 14 ' might be tight
