    We've had a pretty good winter so I decided to upgrade a bit.

    2006 Ford LCF45 Used with 30000 Miles
    8ft Boss Poly with Boss wings. Off the truck this one replaced
    4 yard Saltdogg Electric Poly spreader. New

    We havn't got to do much with it yet, but we are sure it will do just as well as my other cab overs.

    Thank you. I have wanted a truck like this for about 5 years now. The deal was pretty hard to pass up

    I still dont really like cab overs, and not sure that will change, but either way that truck sure is nice. Looks like a money maker. And I guess you do get a much better view of what your doin with one of them trucks.

    ive always thought about these but i would want to test drive one plowing first. Flatbed is always useable and towing but I would want to see what its like plowing with one.

    Yes I still have the other one. But I am hoping to sell it soon.

    This truck has the V6 powerstroke.

    And cab overs are bad azz plow trucks. The new guys don't believe it, then they run them and wont run anything else. Same with my long time guys. They all hate plowing with the f350s. They hate the turning radius and not being able to see what they are doing.

    And yes its one of JPGs trucks.

    This is our first slow week since early december.

    This has been my best season ever.

    The gambles paid off.
