    Havn't posted pics on here for awhile, the rims and tires are about a month old now and the bedliner on the bottom part of the truck was done a couple weeks ago as well. The rims are GM steel wheels that i painted black. The dump trailer i just got last saturday and built the sides for this past wednesday. Let me know what you think! :)

    sorry about the crappy pics, must have happened when i compressed them...you get the jist of it though! :)

    :) had a few problems here and there this winter just replacing some things that were probably just worn out from the age of the truck. I do wish that the truck held the plow a little better, more rigid like the solid front axles, i don't mind the rough ride :) Truck ran strong and has ran strong since, i couldn't be happier with the truck!! Plow was great too, i rebuilt the entire thing so i would sure hope it would do well! :)

    How big is the trailer? How much mulch can you put in that?

    Trailer bed is 5ft wide, 10ft long, and about 4.5ft. high inside demensions...so about 8.3 yards topped off. I would probably put 6 in it max, maybe more depending how far i was going. I made the box big because it will have a leaf loader on it in the fall time.
