    that Polaris is a very nice truck! Plenty of options as far as number of tanks and storage for dry products and the doors all seem to be in the right places.

    The height of the truck looks ideal as well. One thing about our box vans...they are fairly tall, about 9' 8" from ground to top of box. This has caused us to 'prune' (snap off) some tree limbs here and there. Actually I'm not all that concerned about the trees, its the paint and vinyl lettering/logo on the truck that worries me.

    Wonder what the cost is on that polaris truck?

    the second pic of the GMC with the drop gate off the back is what I'm looking at right now. However I ran into a friend that works for a vending company the other day that had 12' box trucks with slide up doors behind the driver side. They are excellent and he said they have a number of them their comapny uses and that he would ask his boss if they were selling off any or who I could contact about their make up.

    Mark, I like that truck too, the only problem I see is you need a side door to load pallets of fert onto, Im sure you can get the body company to make it that way.

    Ill try to attach a photo of a really cool truck, Im not sure if it will work
