That simple question "Why", just got me thinking man! Yeah why a 4-door?

Originally my thoughts were to have one truck to do it all. But the more I think about it, I could have 2 crews & trucks going for weekly lawn mowing this year.

It looks as though we're not slowing down regarding growth. Man I could trade two of the three trucks we have in as a huge down payment on a new dump with a plow, two door.

Fall Clean Ups, Snow Plowing, Salting & Mowing is what I would use this truck for, so that would pretty much cover everything.

Hmm that brought up a good point. I am looking to by a 1 ton in the spring. I was originaly looking for a regular cab long bed srw, but having a dump around might some in handy.

I love my little dump truck the 9' by 7' bed is great and not hard to drive/plow with. I use it every work day. I get like 12mpg and don't have to run back and forth all day getting mulch, unloading leafs... The only thing I wish I did was got a higher GVW I can only carry like 3,800lbs so keep that in mind when looking for one

my 1st dump was a nightmare. I got about 4-6 mpg. It was a pita to plow with except big rectangle lots. I did have a payload 5500lbs though.

I ended up bringing a different truck unless I absolutely had to use the dump. Next time diesel!

I would like to get a fuso or npr but there pretty damn pricey. Its hard to find them used with 4x4. I couldnt buy a truck I couldnt plow with so thats important. It does have a great turn radius and is pretty compact for a heavy duty truck.

On driveways I would think a ranger would be GREAT easy to move around just add a little weight in the back and your good to go.

I used a dashboard cam that I leave recording all the time because of M******* drivers and "people" walking out in front of the truck trying to get hit
I think this is the same as I have on ebay

$30 cam + $20 32gb card
