    The GMC looks like the better deal to me. That Fuso is beat.

    That's for the input and getting the links to work!! I have not seen them in person yet but the gmc might be cheaper in the long run and have two more feet. I just don't know a lot about these trucks.

    Fuso is a no go! Not something I want to put any money in. Going to go look at the gmc tomorrow. It's suppose to have had a transmission replaced and had the brakes done. Pictures are deceiving!! What gas motor is in the gmc?? 5.3 or the 5.7

    350 or 6.0. It's an '03 so I presume it has the 5.7.

    They both look good though I'd prefer the second truck listed, where to you get a dovetail and ramp built? I've been thinking of getting something similar.

    I have a fuso, but it has 120,000 on it. That's to many miles for my tastes

    The 5.7 is what I'm thinking but would love for it to be the 6.0!! I'm hoping a guy at my work will built me a dove tail or bi folding ramps. He does very good fab work. The guy said that the inside of the box is fiberglass and isn't as strong as the one in the fuso. Does this sound like a problem? The body looks to be made by ABC. I have never heard of this brand. It also looks to be from a fleet because of the number 20 on the driver door and roll up which is maybe a good sign. Box trucks are hard to find in my rural area so if this is a good buy I don't want to mIss it. Just though the picture it seems like a good price but not a steal which is ok with me. Anymore thoughts or things I should look for tomorrow?
