    My buddy used a Mitsubsihi 4x4 dump with liek a 8' western. He liked it but didn't like that it wasn't auto so he sold it and bought a F-550. A couple other guys I know use cabovers and they said they like them better then a "regualr" truck but that in Mitsubishi's 4x4 models you can only get a stick so thats like the 1 big thing they dislike.

    I have. It works great. The only drawback was that the unit I had was stick shift which made for slow reverse and lots of shifting. At the time an automatic was not available for the 4X4 cab over. Mitsubishi has since added an automatic trans option which I would stongly suggest.Here are some pics

    I have always wanted to. The turning radius must work wonders!

    The W/B is shorter than my Chevy 2500. Turning sharp while plowing puts the tires in the snow.

    The body looks like its too low to be 4X4. Most 4X4's have an I-pack behind the cab to fill in the high space that the transfer case takes up.

    It also cannot be an FG if it is an automatic and a 2001.
