    In that case i would do 3. You still have a dump and bigger trucks are good.And sell the 1500/small trailer for a bigger z or trailer or whatever else you need.

    Your truck would not work with 1
    4 is boring, and you know it won't happen any way.
    I dont like Dump trucks, personal thing.

    You have a good set up though. But why 2 48''s, trade one for a 36'' to go with the new Z :D .
    With a combo of 21'' 36'' 48' 61'' you cant be stopped. payup
