    I love our flatbed. Its the truck I choose to drive! It is so handy having a heavy duty deck to haul stuff around on. Our next one will dump though!

    Thanks,

    I am happy with the way it came out. I need to do some bodywork in the near future. Northern Illinois winters have taken its toll...

    It has 118k miles, but I kind-of want to pull the engine and make it a mildly built small block. Or maybe it needs a powerstroke, or a cummins, oh the possibilities.... haha

    Here are two we had built last fall. Flip down/ removalble sides & tailgates. All aluminum - very happy with them so far.

    Uh thanks - normally that's something reserved for the ladies...

    Yes I'm short, but don't need the ladder for these. I can even manage to climb up back there. They are mounted on cars afterall. On edit - you mean the running boards (sorry) - I like to keep the crap off the botom of the doors. Yes, Cor offers these as part of his package.

    How's yours working out? I'm about ready to rip the SCR off these. Need another tank at the yard.

    Well, it's all relative. Sure, I could have kept the two that these replaced. But downtime isn't an option, and I can't afford to take chances. These are frontline trucks in the winter - they go out every day on patrol, usually first ones out in a storm and last to return. They both have put on over 10K miles this winter. We rely on them, so spending a bit more to get exactly what we need is worth it in the long run.

    My trucks been awesome, I too have over 10,000 km's of strictly plowing and salting on myn... average 21l/100 plowing and salting with extreme idle times, I just have myn on the stock engine tune it's not very fast compared to my Denali. Finding dpf delete tuners is the biggest problem now, luckily for me I bought 3 just for fun when they were cheap cause I knew I'd need them sometime down the road... my truck is going in to get a custom body beginning of April, angled oval tail lights with bullet marker lights and cab formed headache rack so wind resistance and bar steel front to cut down even more, plus the tarp mounted at the side panel level instead of being up top where all it does is just flap in the wind, hopefully it'll turn out good
