Well I have been thinking about it and I was gonna buy a tandem or a F-350 and now my old man thinks I should buy a single axle 5 ton. The truck I'am looking for will be a L-8000 12+23 axles 8v71 power and a Roadranger transmission if I get a truck with a wheelbase close to my 450 I still can get into the same places with a bigger truck. The 450 is good but a guy can't carry enough material on the truck because people usually want 3 yards and thats 9000 lbs on a 1.5 ton truck which is too heavy. I'am not worried that this truck is over CDL because I'am already a commercial driver. Have any of you guys driven a L-8000 Ford single axle and what are they like ? I have driven L-9000 tandems seemed tobe fine a bit rough rider. I figure I should get more work with this truck because I can get into places where a tandem can't go or where people people only want 1 to 6 yards of material. What do ya think my F-450 might be gone (Sold) next week so its time to look for a replacement truck.
