    couple of pics, the landscape bed works great, it's just a bit steep though, but the walker gets up and down quite eaisily

    wow i really like that body ... How about your loading angle when u are pulling the bed up onto the truck.can u leave the equipment on the bed when not in use?We were going to have a body built for our 550 that would be almost the same but my loading angle is way to sharp to swtch bodies with any kind of turf equipment on. That a reason the swicth and go is nice lower loading angle.
    Here is a pic of our ford when it was new ... Ill get some current ones of the Kenworth and Ford tomorrow ..

    Just worked a deal with a buddy picking up an ampliroll al90s only 12k lift but really all I need. Looking for an Isuzu FTR to put it on now. It will be nice to have it set up!
