    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if any of you guys knew a good place to look for work trucks online. I'm talking like dumps and plow trucks. All the sites I find have very few even within my state. Thanks for any help.

    Private owners and dealerships, but if you go to a dealership you gotta know your stuff or they will sell you a hunk of junk for $10,500.

    What vehicle did you buy for $10,500.00?

    I didn't buy any..im just saying they will try to sell you a truck that has been worked to death and needs to be rebuilt for premium prices.

    I see em all the time 95'-00' Ford or chevy 3/4 or 1 ton with 250,000 and they want like $10-12,000 for em.

    It is amazing at the price differences around the US. I looked on-line and finally got mine in Tennessee and had it shipped here on a short load. Start with the normal searches which will bring up names of dealers and then check out their links.....I found mine at Cottrell's (forget their website right now). There's lots of them out there.....

    Also, rental fleet straight trucks (box trucks) can be easily converted......

    2004 Trail FX tool box

    Also available brand new (used 3 times) Boss Super Duty 7'6'' plow

    I have owned this truck for two years but a career change forces me into a car...:dizzy: This truck has been impecably maintained, I have all maintenance records/receipts for myself and from the previous owner.

    $13,500 for truck
    $3,500 for plow

    Anyone intersted should contact me immediately as I have it listed and will sell to the first serious offer.

    I am in the Detroit, MI area
