    Finally got a chance to snap a few pics of my latest set-up. Te two strobes on the head board are temporary until I get a chance to mount up a Whelen Edge 9M Mini bar.

    We fabricated the stainless platform our selves and installed all of the lights and wiring on the sander. We are working on the new 3-4 yd Iriquois dump body for it now. Bought it just in primer and will do the install and paint ourselves once we get done customizing the body to the way I want it.

    Made up a plastic box with aluminim cover plate to mount up the connection for the sander connections. Tried to keep everything as water proof as possible.

    Just a question, dont know if you know, but on the gas/hydrualic drive ones, can you adust the conveyor and spinner differently from in the cab, or is it just a clutch before the hydrulic pump and they run straight up...

    Sweet. I wanted an F550 PSD dump, even test drove 2 of them..and they were all that and a bag of chips. But money was an issue...FMC wanted $7500 down and $900 a month for 60..simply out of my budget. So I ended up with the '12 F250 with the 10K GVW and the 9.5 Xv. And I am very pleased. While the F550 would have been great and all, the reality is this pickup is far better suited to plowing my route. And I still have the 2000 F550.

    What type of gas mileage are you getting & what gear do you have in it ? I also have a 2012 F-250 gas job with 3.73's and this truck I sh!t you not gets between 17.8-18.1 mpg's on the highway if i keep the rpm's at 1,500. Even around town it gets 14 plus consistently, granted I'm not hauling any real weight, but I'm real impressed with this truck.
