    For those who own a PJ, what do you think of them quality wise. I'm looking at the medium duty 78" x 12'. I think i was quoted around $5700 for it, reasonable? Post pictures if you have any also.

    I love mine best money we ever spent. Hands down and get the scissor hoist. Quality is the best out there.

    Here is my 14ft P.J. It has been excellent in every way, but one. The bearings they use suck! The bearings on the front axle went out with less than 1000 miles. I replaced all them with Timpkins and all has been well since. I would buy another.

    We have a 24' flatbed with hyd dove tail. That thing is built like a tank let me tell you. Money well spent

    Only thing you need to watch out for is the rear fender. I had a load in it and when I went to dump it the fender went into the tire ,so I cut it off.
