    .Haha, yeah it was a little weird to pull into the yard in a Chevy, running joke around the shop is that im having a midlife crisis. Got rid of all my John Deere mowers and went to Exmark! Plow this year for sure, we dont do any salting really. Ive got a reciever spreader for one truck, other than that no one around here salts, nor wants salt.

    The motor in it, although a little thirsty, will have very good power and will run for a long time with very little problems. I had one in a one ton and it ran and ran for years.

    Good looking little truck... Should serve you well.
    That's not a old converted Schwan's truck, is it?

    We have an old schwans truck, I drove it for the first time the other day, it was the same as our diesel 4500s

    Could you go into a little more detail on the schwans truck and your review on them/how you chose to outfit the truck? I've been looking into them on and off for the past year but still can't find a good source for them.

    Be careful:nod: of who is driving this beast if you are loaded to the max your driver had better have his CDL, because you could be over 26000 lbs. total. I know in my neck of the woods DOT has been going after the landscapers for this very thing:gunsfiring:.
