    I haven't posted here in a few years, but here goes. It's a 2007 GMC 5500 4x4 with a Fisher V-plow. Body is a Jerrdan wrecker. 2x 10000k winches and rear wheel lift @ 6k. Finally got some good snow tires for it, only the drives. Bridgestone BDR-W. Kinda like a Blizzak tread. Now to find some steer tires worth a darn. Mostly used as a wrecker, but the plow comes in handy on jobs as well. mark

    Thanks for the compliments. I just wish the payment wasn't so much each month. Decent tow truck, but great plowing machine. With the height, it will stack snow in the scoop postion close to 6-7 ft tall. Stay safe out there.

    dude...........That thing is sweet! I've been more of a International guy, but I like that. Is it the 4X6 model? Do you have the under lift forks and gear so you can haul med. stuff as well? I used to run a GMC with that style body. You can haul anything from a Tractor to an Focus with that thing.

    What's your payments like $1000 or so?

    4x4, manual hubs, duramax. I have only towed up to f450-f550's so far. The rear springs are alittle too soft for anything much heavier. Payment is just shy of $1700.00 a month. yikes. It's like having another house payment.

    I would love a truck like that!! they make 4x4 rollbacks as well, those things are sweet. I hear you on the rear leafs thought. theres a 4500 chevy rollback around town and just the weight of the rollback is sagging it down a bit

    I went back and looked at old pics from the one I drove, it was a 6500. I think he had air bags on his, or some kind of leveling system, because it didn't sag that bad at all. I was dedicated to the Ryder account with it for the longest time moving single and tandem day cabs. I even hauled a 40' RV with it one night...talk about a hairy ride. I loved the sound of the CAT engine though.

    Your right, $1700 is alot of dough to be forking out, but unlike the house right now, atleast the truck puts $$ back in the piggy bank from time to time. payup

    Nice looking rig, stay safe out there. :waving:
