    sounds like about 10k off new. Not a bad deal, still alot of payments to swallow. I wish they would make a 4500hd and a 5500hd that size. Just put them on a heavy axle set and beefy springs.

    I agree, seems like there would be a market for them. I know plenty of people who have bought 450/550's because of the smaller frame, but if GM made a 4500hd/5500hd on the smaller frame they would have gone with GM...

    BTW Nice new truck!!!

    Will probably put another western on it. Size and type not sure yet. Really like the western I have now and the local dealer support is awesome. Payments yes, down time and repair bills nill for 2 years+. That is my thought process. Just do not like used vehicles.

    Truck looks great and will serve you well. Who is your dealer and what area of Cleveland are you located? If I was you I would go with the Wideout for sure on that truck. The versatility and productivity of the plow is unmatched. I guarantee you will be happy with the buy.

    Located in Old Brooklyn area of Cleveland. Biddulph and State to be exact. Was thinking wideout for next fall too. Alot of red though, giant cherry driving around. Oh well, price was right for me, beggers cannot be choosers:) I use Carnegie Body, they have always been fair to me and taken care of any issues on my pro plow quickly and done right the first time, although that western has been virtually trouble free since purchase 3 years ago, just a few small leaks basically from rusting here and there a little, the most important thing to me. If time permits we should get together sometime and network?
