In all honesty - the Christmas light idea is a really good idea. Not a service for me, but it's a great idea. My old man has been buying and flipping these trucks for a while now. Verizon recently started CUTTING the bucket off of the boom (they say for liability reasons). My truck, the one in the picture has had the bucket cut. The truck behind it is one that my dad got for himself which does have the cherry picker fully intact. I don't need the cherry picker, I need to get the truck's weight down as low as possible so I can pull the equipment trailer with equipment. This truck will be used about 2 days a week, certain aspects of our work require an array of tools on the first 2 days we're there.
