    Ok guys ... most of you have seen my fleet. This truck is going in for a paint job (Dump Body ONLY) in about 2-3 weeks. I was originally going to go white to match the 08's but I was thinking (not always a good thing) of maybe keeping it black or possibly go New Look Green. Suggestions????? Comments?????

    The second pic is the current 08' ...... just for reference.

    Go green and then paint the '08 dump beds green too. You got all that extra ca$h from selling that 810 go to town with it lol.

    Whatever you do have all the trucks match, there's always something to be said for a matching fleet, you went with the same scheme on the new enclosed to match the old one why break the fleet with this one?

    I say paint it white like the rest of them. Green looks a little circus like and comical. Just my opinion.

    I would do white but add some green( stripe or grafix ) to set you apart. Than have a sign shop add vinyl to the other dumps to match.

    I agree, white with a green stripe would look cool and different.

    Green body i would do that with the white nice color combo red stands out even more with the white but green looks good for a landscaping co.

    White really looks "clean". A green stripe or some kind of green design on the white dump would also look sharp.

    If it was mine, white with green stripe....I think it would be too much green to go with the dump all in green but thats jmo.

    The white looks pretty sharp, but green might too. One of the larger companies around my area has white cabs with black beds and a thick green stripe that goes through the cab. Its a pretty clean look, however for yours i'd say match the fleet.

    Seems that the black is going bye bye. Leaning toward white with possibly something lime green on the truck. It will also get side boards like this .......... I could go all green on the side boards for all the trucks too. Decisions decisions.

    The pics are the summer set ups on the 08's.
