    I know, I know. It has about a 57ft working height. With a pole saw and throwbag I get another 7 :)

    I do a lot of city work, so the short wheel base and rear mount are the tits...

    Very close.

    4700 with a DT360 5+2

    I wish it was a DT466M but for the configuration of the truck and price, it was a no brainer.

    That's what the research I did tells me..

    Great motor, but a tad under powered for a truck this big. I mean, I guess I'm a little biased though because I just went on a 1200 mile road trip with it, hills and all..

    I know around town it will be a fine truck with plenty of pulling power in the proper gear, and the durability of the motor id a great peace of mind.

    Looks good.

    Do yourself a favor and buy some of these along with the additive.

    The DT's are pretty well known for liner/o-ring pitting & failure, which will lead to coolant leaking into the oil. Not pretty when it happens, I'm in the middle of overhauling mine at the moment........

    Had a DT 466 go that way, in chassis re sleeve. Not a huge deal, but you're right. There is a certain type of coolant that should be run in these motors..
