    I put over 5 in my 550 last year.

    I made it atleast 30kms before the rear grenaded.

    But that's probably from repeatedly overloading.

    Nice looking truck. A few quick questions:

    1) if you went hyrdo why not undertailgate spreader??
    2) can you get me some info on them mud flaps and rear dual covers whatever they might be?
    3) Are this leds in the head board how do you like them??

    You can see from my Sig why I am asking.

    TIA, Ron G.

    Yes, it will be. That's a big spreader.

    Beautiful truck, though.

    Nice setup!

    i have one similar, its an 06 550 XL stainless body, 9ft xblade and a 3.5yd torwell stainless sander.

    The gvw on these trucks is like 19,995 i believe, and my truck scales at 9900 lbs empty, add a plow at about 900 lbs, and a sander which is probably around the same weight maybe a little more and were at 11800 empty that still leaves room for about 4 tons of matierial give or take, but i wouldent push it that far every time lol

    The stainless saves alot of weight i guess, but the truck will handle it no problem, just gotta be carefull with the steel body and the heavy v-plow.
