    hey guys any one have a service body , that they plow with? post up some pics.please

    i want a extended cab but im thinkin maybe a reg cab, but i havent had a reg cab since88 and i think i might be spoiled lol.

    i came across one its an ford350 06 for 21,500 it has the diesel 6.0 is this motor any good or is a gasser better? it has 39000 miles and a vplow for another 5000.and its a regular cab.

    i already have a van that has tool access, so the service body isnt really needed, will the xtra weight hurt mileage?contractor tools mainly? and what do you think itll get for mileage? and last how are the bodies as far as rust goes? i keep my vehicles pampered but ive seen new ones that are rusted. thanks guys.

    Here are some pics of the utility bed on my truck. This bed has a raised center and a sliding cap on it. This is nice because when I have tools in the back they can be locked up. The negative is that when you back up you have to use the mirrors on the doors. When plowing this slows you down. Since we don't get a lot of snow down here, my truck makes me more money doing other work. A back up camera is on the list
    This bed has storage on the top of the boxes, look at the third pic. The bed is made by Knapheide. I really like it, I have had it about 3 years.

    how are your bodies holding up, inside any rust issues,

    gmc sierra, how many miles does your buddy have?

    bike5200, thats the same color i want, i wont put a top on it as i already have tool transport. i really want a matching fleet. the inside of the bed is atleast 4' wide right?

    heres my tool box now,[​IMG]

    thanks for the replies guys.

    The inside of the beds are 49" x 97" I do not have any large rust spots on mine that I know of. I bought the bed in primer and painted it myself and installed it. I put seam sealer where the supports where welded on the under side and sprayed more undercoating on it where I thought it needed it. I also sprayed the inside bottom of the tool boxes in the rear and front of the bed with the red paint.
