    A few things:
    1. Very uneven surfaces that we maintain (driving around with box up) not fun.
    2. box corrosion is better with VBox.
    3. No Hydraulics on truck.

    very nice rig. i am not very familiar with the very big trucks like this so dont laugh if this is an obvious answer i am looking for. is it just me or is that very simmilar to the newer dodges?? i was told long ago that the sterlings were just old ford semis and sterling bought out that part of ford. i have no idea if this is acurate, but it made me wounder with how much it looks like a dodge.
