    I received a qoute for one and it was $47,000 equipped my way truck, box, ramp, gas tanks. It was to much monthly to profit itself, but the idea is solid if you have employees wasting time learning to pull trailers, fueling equipment, loading-unloading if you don't have a enclosed trailer which I already do, and money saved on tires, ins., registration on trailer. I was researching the idea when I came across there site. I've seen the hydro Ramp in person and watched it go up and down, nothing like the speed of my trailers spring assisted ramp. I don't know if can plow or not, I live in Orlando, FL. I've done all or most of the research if you have any questions.

    I noticed on your profile you have some grid iron trimmer racks. I was looking at buying a trimmer rack from them. How well do they work.

    It sounds like there are lots of mixed reviews here on the SLTs. My brother-in-law Mike purchased one last year for his business and he loved it. He said it saved him time because he didn't have to worry about backing and unhooking a trailer each night. He was going to use it as an on-site workshop as well for sharpening blades, etc. And he was pretty quick with the gate.

    Sadly, Mike died a month ago unexpectedly. I am helping my sister with the estate. Mike's SLT has a GMC frame, hydraulic gate, auxillary fuel tanks and other extras. It has less than 5000 miles on it. I have the SLT with me in Maryland and am trying to sell it. He paid closed to $46K for it. If anyone is interested in a used, low-mileage, like-new SLT, please contact me.

    Does this truck have the side door on the box ? Does it have the hydro rear ramp? What is the length of the box?
