    Nice Truck! Those bodies are nice and I can't wait till I can get a truck with one! What engine does the truck have?

    The best part is the sides and floor are high impact plastic, witch makes the truck a little lighter so Im able to carry more. The engine is a 6.0

    That dump body must be much more rust resistant compared to typical bodies because it has less steel construction.

    No rust, you cant see scratches, and nothing sticks to it! The only problem I had is in hot weather the panels would warp. I sent it back and they replaced all the pannels, it was compleatly covered under the waranty.

    How does that 6.0 do when your loaded and pulling a trailer? I drove a new 08 3500 w/ a 12' stake dump on it a few weeks ago. It seemed as if I was trying to pull a semi up a hill. Didn't seem as if it had much of any power empty...

    Ok. I borrowed a friends back-up dump truck for a sod job I was doing. I had borrowed his kubota tractor to help with the job (which ended up being a bit to big for the job) and had 2 skids of sod in the bed of the truck. (It was an 89 f350 mason dump with a 5.8L v8.) It handled the load ok, I knew it was there but it did ok.
    The truck I test drove felt worse then how that dump truck did that day.
