Thats not a bad price for that truck if its in good shape. Dealers are hurting right now trying to get rid of these gasers.

ok well I think this a great work truck. I would keep the chevy and make that the truck that stays hooked to the trailer. or sell the chevy and drive that. whatever works for u. I do not think u will have a problem pullin the dump with that. as long as it is not loaded! these trucks do sit the tail end down real low with a dual axle behind them. maybe a wee bit under powered but that is fixable. duals air intake cold air kit. maybe a supercharger a 200 shot for those bridges. and u will be set!. it should work great though! I am still leanin on the cummins but this is a work truck which u need

Go for it. The dodge is a good deal but now you're thinking like a business owner---not like an owner-op. This truck will let you keep your profits (and it's a great deal---check with a ford guru about the right sparkplug setup, though so you avoid the risk of popping one)

If I seen a truck like that I would take my credit card to the dealer and buy that truck. Its only a 2wd but you don't find trucks that cheap here or a truck ordered that way a 2wd 3/4 ton XLT. Even if it had the V-10 it would be a good truck. Diesel trucks are not worth it anymore.

Perfect, other than the single cab. Personally, I would have difficulty using a single cab, as the crews I run are generally 3-4 guys.

Other than that, though, PERFECT. And for a smaller operation where you probably won't have more than three guys, I wouldn't even blink at the single cab.

You can't go wrong with $3,500.. I don't even have a trailer that cost that little.
