    Here is our new F-650, bought late last fall, still working on getting it set up the way we want it, this week will be getting 3 or 4' toolbox on drivers side under bed, and diamond plate to wrap the side boards. Pic. of the new bobcat too. We look forward to putting them to work so they can start paying for themselves!

    Yeah, I think a diamond plate toolbox will look good on the truck. Nice Bobcat by the way.

    Just my 2 cents:

    I would leave the side boards...AS IS. I don't know how much that diamond plate on them is going to run, but I'd say too much.

    I've tore a few side boards up in my day, granted this was on a full size tandem while running a CAT 963, but...still expensive.

    Tearing one up now is as easy as replacing a 2X. It'll hurt alot less than replacing a diamond plate wrapped 2X.

    Nice truck though.

    We have used the S205 a little, and love it. Used it to plow some snow earlier this year, and just now starting to move dirt with it. We also have a S250 & 300, all great machines.
    The truck has the 5.9 Cummins, w/allison 5 speed auto.
    The body is 14' long, originally i was looking for a 16' but am glad i got the 14', just makes it easier for getting around town, etc. if i were to load it completely up i would be overweight anyhow.

    Why not get 6' boxes so that you can fit hand tools, power tools, 5gal fuel cans etc inside? 24"x24"

    25,500 GVW?
