    Nice rig, wish I had put the piggy back unit behind my cab instead of a longer dump body.

    do you ever have trouble plowing being that its not a 4x4? it seems like when the sander get close to empty you might have some issues with traction

    Yes, you loose traction as the sander gets empty. The areas I had problems with are, starting up a drive that is rather steep from a stop at the bottom, and draging my push frame on a very steep approach angled driveway. On a normal plowing surface these trucks are like a tank, lots of push. 4x4 makes a big differance but it also ads other issues because the higth of the cab and body is bumped up higher to alow clearance for the 4x4. Makes for a very high bed deck for every day use.

    PS: I should mention that I had a locker in my truck whitch helped a lot.
