Yeah it is long..........254" wheel base. Blue is my main production truck. The setup and capability of the truck allows me to really "move in" on a job with everything I need. I can even more so with the addition of the 4500 and a trailer if need be. The 4500 wasn't meant to be the main truck but when the first Blue was totaled I didn't have much choice. I was planning to sell the '02 Chevy 2500hd I've got with the purchase of the 4500 but its paid off and with what I would get for it........well, I'll just keep it for now. It's my plow truck anyway and if get into mowing etc that will be its use. The good thing is that I am pretty well set with equipment and can tackle just about anything I choose. Right now I'm just tightening up on everything like many other companies so that I can be ready for a slow season if that happens to come. I do still need a 18' flatbed/deckover trailer if anybody happens to have one.
