    Looking for a used box truck with at least a 16ft bed....Something like a old UHaul truck would be great. Anyone know any sites for used commercial trucks? If it was in Indiana it would be even better.

    There is a U-Haul Truck dealer in Schererville, IN that sells off-rental trucks. I own 2 and have had little problems with either.

    I'm in the Terre Haute area. Do you have contact info for him? Can you get two Choppers in them? Also, what kind of price range?

    We have 2 of the E350 diesel versons. You should be able to get to choppers in one. I'll measure the box Monday and I have contact info at my office. I paid $4500.00 for one and $3000.00 for another w/ a bad trans. If you do decide to buy one, pick one that has had a lot of parts replaced. The one I got w/ the bad trans had a new injection pump and new injectors. Overall, they're not bad trucks. You will probably need to have all the fluids changed, new glow plugs, diesel tune up, belts, brakes, etc. You will have to put about $1500-$2000 into one, but you will have a decent truck. We did this with the 2 I own and have had little problems with them. The only thing that went bad on both was the fule tank sending unit and I had to replace 1 injection pump that was origional from '89. Sure beats 25K for a new truck.
