    I just bought my first dump truck on Sunday. It's an 07 with only 10k miles on it. Gonna get a plow soon. I got to good of a deal to pass this up. That's why I didn't get a Ford :p

    Cool truck, you'll love it. I have a similar one. I have that dump body on mine but the sides fold down. The openings to see out the back work really well, I can see a lot better than I thought. I think you'll agree. What engine?

    Na- couple cranks on the t-bars and he'll be all set... especially if it's a gasser (I'm guessing it is)...

    Nice truck! My favorite color :D She'll definitely move some snow!

    Nice truck, I have the exact same one. The same color, year, dump bed, etc... Except my dump bed is black. You'll enjoy it. For the money I paid for mine, its a nice truck.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments guys! It's a 6.0 gas and a 2WD. I plan on putting a bunch of weight in the back. It will mostly be a sidewalk crew and a backup truck for this winter. But for what I want to do, it is perfect! I paid only $17,000 for it!

    I am planning on getting a 9.5 Western MVP Plus. I like my Western dealer, and I want my plows to be interchangable.

    we have a couple 2wd dumpers, 4wd only helps you get more stuck, put it on the right lots and its no issue.. congrats on the purchase!
