    I am in need of an Isuzu/Chevy/GMC cabover with a dump body on it. I am having trouble finding one as it seems these trucks are harder to get a hold of than I realized. Most of the dealers I have talked to will need to order and it would be April before I get it. I didnt know if any of you had seen any for sale. Thanks,

    Brandon, thanks for the response. I have talked to them, they seem to be helpful but the scary thing is I am not sure how well they know the trucks they sell. From what I have heard (this is coming from an engineer for GMC) you should not put a 14' dump body on the truck I want due to pivot points weight etc. I told the people at the dealership this and they said they sell these trucks everyday. I tell the source of the info this and they said yea, I am sure they do sell these trucks everyday but it does not mean it is ok. So I have been worried about the qualifications of the people at Black ever since then. Let me know if you know otherwise, as I really want/need a 14' body on the truck. I 14' body will hold a lot more plants etc than a 12' (I know it wont hold more weight, but the volum is important)

    According to Isuzu's web site the 150" wb crew cab can take up to a 12' body and the 176' wb model can take up to a 16' body.

    HoseJockey, that is true, but not a 16' dump body, I was told that it could take a 16' box or 16' landscape body, but only a 12' dump----possibly 13'.
