    Nice Truck, my Boss runs the same ones, one with an 8' bed, and one with the 9'. What is done to the front, I notice that on all my Boss's trucks they sag real bad. He's going to have the T-Bars cranked, but is wondering if he will need Timbrens or not. One Suggestions is to move those Boss Wires to down inside the lower bumper. They will wear the paint and scuff it where they currently are. Don't ask how I know :realmad:

    Thanks for the suggestion.....most non-daily drivers (non-take home trucks) are mounted in the exact same place all Chevy's but still.

    The shop that does all of my truck work did the work for someone else and they paid 14K for bed, hoist, strobes, tarp and removal of flatbed 16 months ago. Some re-marketing company had it my guess is someone lost it or traded and got killed?

    I'm happy with it is good buy, I think, couldn't pass it up, love D-Max anyway and needed another plow truck so it all made since.

    Nice truck...congrats on the smoking deal.

    With so many gently used trucks out there, and already nicely depreciated, I decided a few years ago to never buy new again.

    those stainless beds are really nice but $$$$ congrats on yours, hope it makes you money!

    there was an absolutely beautiful 09 f550xlt supercab with 14' stainless dump at our dealer. it had been sitting there for at least a year so i called to get the price on it. my jaw dropped when he told $80,000! he said the bed cost at least 20K and it had alot of other goodies on it as well.

    i think another dealer bought it and took the bed off and it ended up getting sold separately.

    heres a pic of it when it was at the auto show:
