    With the aluminum dump body, are you limited to hauling clean material or will it handle broken concrete brick rock etc

    I think that is fair. It would be a good trailer puller. The alum. box may limit hauling concrete or stumps but it's lighter so you can haul more base course and black dirt.

    I think with the color it could be used for lots of visibility/marketing. Think of all the women that would remember getting black dirt from the guy with the pink truck?

    yea the box does limit, we only moved topsoil/mulch so it suited our purposes... thanks for all the input...

    To help the OP, and give some information to interested parties..If you are worried about the aluminum body limiting what you can haul you can line the floor with either 3/4 inch plywood or 2x6's and the walls with 3/4 inch plywood and it will drastically reduce the impact on the body. I bought a dump truck a few years back with a aluminum body and that was already done, I replaced the wood this spring and the body looked new under the wood. For the record my trucks haul anything from screened sand to 12-16 inch rip rap and everything in between, like broken up concrete and stumps.Sorry to the OP for mucking up your f/s thread, but I was in hopes this information would help the buyers that would not have taken your truck into consideration due to the body.
