Like I posted on the TDR, I finally got my truck back from my upfitters (Precission Truck Body of Pittsfield NH). The did a great job, especially the little things like mud flaps in front of the rear wheels and behind the truck boxes. The drop sides of the AirFlo dump body are KEY!

Very nice looking truck!
Hope you get many years service out of it.

I used a truck with those side hinged bodies, great for certain jobs and loading unloading from the side when trailer is still hooked up.

Thats the plan, I hope to keep this for at least 15 years.

My old one (which I will keep for some time) is still running good, just the body is rotting from all the NH salt.

You need some front mud flaps or your aluminum boxes and doors will be always covered with salt and snow. My quad cab 5500 was the same way.

That will be next on the list, plus a small step for getting in and out of the truck.

I have about the same set up but havent got it going yet. Have you weighed it yet? I was curious what mine was going to weigh.

No, not yet. I guess the total weight would be about 10,000 (body and hoist was a little over 2000 lbs.)

FATCAT,

I see your truck is Not For Hire,

So would it be possible to borrow it [laugh][laugh]

Nice truck I'm looking at a Sterling 5500 4x4 next week myself..

Borrow it, yeah right. Well my neighbor and I have about 40+ yrds of mulch to move next weekend (big properties, we're covering as much as possible).

He is an old truck driver an keeps saying "I can't wait to freight that thing up and pop some wheelies!" (in a Frank Rizzo [Jerky Boys] voice).
