    Thanks man I cant wait to start working out of it. The motor seems to run real good. I spent a little more than I wanted to but it will have a tranny with a warranty. I will have $4700 in it but I think I still came out pretty good. I like your logo.

    You stole that thing. Ive been looking for a dump version of the w body.

    Just went to an auction for one and it went for 9k with diesel and 100k miles.

    Those trucks are far and few between up here for some reason...they just dont seem popular and i havent figured out why??

    there are a couple that actually plow with them and love them because they say you are on top of the blade and have great visibility..

    Good luck....my search continues

    Thanks man I already went and got my tag for it and the best thing is because of the weight class of the truck it does not have to go through TN emissions testing. I have problems with that every year with my f150. Got the insurance also and it is not bad at all $262 every 6 months for full coverage from farm bureau.

    Thats why i have a C4500...its in the non cdl and non emissions category.

    Every one says what do u need a truck like that for. its over kill etc..
    i say no not really it fits a niche nicely.

    should have came this way. At the Grounds Maintenance Inc auction earlier this year 5 of them went for around $5,000 each all diesel.

    Well I got the truck back yesterday and it seems to be running great. I drove it all over town and it is shifting great. I got most of the bed painted yesterday I am gonna try to finish sometime this weekend. Here is a few pics so far.

    I looked at the pics again, and I just noticed something. The bottoms of the seats are vinyl, and the seatbacks are cloth. That is such a perfect combo...cuz you always see cloth seat bottoms ripped up and the vinyl is more durable for that, but you got the cloth backs so you dont get that horrible back-sweat while driving in the hot summer like u do with vinyl seats!!! as dumb as that all sounds, its a really great idea!
