    ok this is gonna sound bad but i hope you dont sell it and still have it after the first of the year so i can buy it. That is a great truck for the money. Unless you wanna take 10k for it i really cant do anything untill after the first of the year.

    Thanks for the compliments. People really seem to like my color scheme.

    The primary function of the truck is during the summer so when I built it I felt that a stick was better for hauling and towing. Being able to utilize the engine more for breaking is a huge advanage in my book. That is why with 34k miles they brakes are till about 50%. My area is pretty hilly so picking your gears is better for driving IMO.

    Also, the truck belongs in a large parking lot for plowing. That is what I planned for it. The first year I had the work for it. After that It was really a back up. It is best for large parking lots or private roads.

    You can't see the strobes in the front because of the glare they are actually built into the wind deflector of the tarping system. i will get some pics tomorrow. The rears are on the back of the dump bed where most guys have them. Nothing fancy just enough to get peoples attention. They are low Ohms so you can run them all day while the truck is parked and not kill the battery at all.

    Thanks for the bump! Still available. The only thing I am using it for now is Getting Some Salt every few weeks! It doesn't see the road that much during the winter months!

    It is a very nice truck. I know if it had air brakes my buddy would buy that quick.

    If it had airbrakes I wouldn't be selling it. I would extend the frame and re-rate the GVWR. When I ordered it in 05' I thought I needed a CDL to drive it with Air. I was wrong :-( The Brakes actually work very well. 34k on it and they are only about 1/2 gone. It has an exhaust Brake which helps alot.

    Ya, I was looking at a 1999 gmc topkick with a heated dump, cat diesel and it had hydraulic brakes. They wanted $12k for it. The truck was beautiful just like your truck. But hydraulic brakes scared me away. Well i hope yoiu can sell it. it is a very nice truck.

    I have driven many dump trucks that were 1 tons with hydraulic brakes that was good. I drove a couple bigger units with air brakes and that was a good experience. I would just think a big dump like that loaded to max with hydraulic brakes would be pushing it a lot. But like you said the engine brake helps a lot too.
