    I want one bad, anyone have one? How about pics of theirs yet?
    I hope to buy one this spring for me as my designated work truck and let the wife have the mega cab for the family and as a backup. 19,500 lb rating!:redbounce

    I want the 4500 really bad but I can't get over the fact you have to spend an extra $5k to put a box on it. I think I'm just going to get another 3500 and roll with that for awhile. Talked to my dealer today and if I trade in my current truck he can put me in a new one for $15k to boot. I think that's a good deal but I want to think it through a little bit more.

    Went to the dealer today!

    Got the skinny on the 5500 chassis cab.
    What a beast! Drove one for a few miles with no body on back, I'm still icing my kidneys.:jester: What an awesome truck, can't wait to buy one this spring! The turning radius was unreal, like the regular ones, but with another 3/4 turn each way, unbelievable sharp turning! The six speed auto was great, small like a regular pickup truck, and less money than a new Chevy 5500 with a better motor too. 7000 lb front axle, 13500 lb rear, and only 8100lb curb weight for the reg cab. With the 19500lb rating should put you at 8-10k capacity depending on upfit body.
