    Are you only putting the 7.5 on it? What kind of work do you do?

    its got 174K but it runs like a top ill keep it goin for another 100k. i work in the rental business so i am constantly goin on construction sites fixing machines that the customers break. so putting all my tools in the bed of my old truck was getting old. this will be a nice transition.

    Nice truck, I kinda think I'd like to have a utility body truck and get into irrigation pretty heavy.

    once you get used to the utility body and get it set up the way you like it you will never have a use for a regular pick up box again. I have two and love them. good luck with it, its super clean.Thumbs Up

    If I had stayed in the remodeling business, my next truck would have been a utility box.
