    I am in the market for a used Box truck. Any suggestions would be great. Pros, cons and which models are good and what to look out for. I am thinking of replacing my enclosed trailer.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jason

    Jason,

    I have had an NPR (GMC W-4) for 12 years and still going strong. Mine is the gas model. I would buy another one. We use ours for the debris we remove from our yards - mostly grass clippings, and tow a trailer behind it. I have had few problems with it, but because the cab and chassis are Asian, sometimes parts and know how are a problem. I would recommend the HD model as the rotors on mine have cracked from too much heat. The HD model had much bigger rotors. Have also had electrical problems which each time turned out to be the fusible link. Bought this type of truck because it was short in length and fit nicely in my storage unit. Good luck!
