    I need another truck, bigger than what I have now. Im not sure if I want the cab over W series, or a C series (like a kodiak).

    The W series has a much bigger box, a big storage compartment, longer warranty,and is cheaper ($35,000). The only thing holding me back is I hate how ugly cab overs are. The sides on the dump are about 4-5ft tall and it also has a side door.

    The C series is just your average dump body with fold down sides (which I love) and it has a locking diff. and that is going for $37000, but it doesnt have as long of a warranty and more expensive and not as big of a box.

    The only thing really holding me back is:
    1. the w series is ugly.
    2. you cant plow with the w series.
    3. you can haul more with the w series.
    4. you can see more with the w series.
    5. w series is cheaper.

    so im really not quite sure on what to do here. its a tough decision. I know I WANT the C series, but I think the W series is a better investment.

    what do you think?

    Why cann't you plow with a W series? I have set up 2 of them and they are awesome plow trucks. You look right down on the blade, they have a incredible turning radius, and because of the vertical windshield snow just slides off so there's none of the normal snow build up on the cowling.
