    Looks really clean. Are you guys putting a plow on it or no? I hope you didn't put more gas in it lol. That might be why it died in the first place hahahaha.

    Thanks! I like it alot this is the first truck we have had it in. it shifts nice and gets up and going pretty good. The gauge read it had 1/4 tank left but the reading was wrong bc they just the fuel sending unit needs to be replaced. we had the mechanic from the dealer com and put gas in it

    This dump is not a gas burner. it uses diesel fuel... That is why people are saying Fuel and " I hope you didnt put more gas in it....

    From now on use the term- fuel.....

    I was going to harass you about calling it "gas" also, that's not a big deal but if you keep doing it you have to hand in your man card. The reason I cut you slack is that you said "cummins" and not "cummings". Spell it with a G and your balls get removed to be used as a paper weight.

    Believe me i hate it when people call it a cummings instead of a cummins. I almost always say fuel when referring to diesel.Im not an idiot when it comes to diesels haha

    What are the specs on it?? axle ratings, double framed, type of susp. etc etc. I dont think them 335 are built heavy enough to be tri/axles. Just my 2cents. Overall it is a nice looking truck. Hope it works good for you. Thumbs Up

    it has 46 rears,12 fronts and i think 15 or something like that on the lift axle. thats plenty fine for what were hauling.it has the haulmax suspension in it and i believe it is double framed.its heavy enough plus the floats on the front add to what it can carry. Thanks! Yea it not bad for an 2005

    I hope it's double framed. My uncle's 1991 Ford L9000 wheeler only has a single frame and you can se the frame flex when you are loading it.

    If I were to order a truck it would have a thick single frame. Rust between a double frame is a huge problem. I helped my pa strip a C500 kenworth down to bare bones because of rust. I stripped my double frame kodiak down to the frame rails to deal with it.
