The truck and trailer look fantastic!

How has getting your truck all lettered up like that changed things for you? I think a lot of forum readers are on the fence about doing it so it would be fascinating to hear more of your insights to help them make their decision to do it.

The 2nd gen dodge cummins are notorious for lift pump failures. The filters you see hanging is the AirDog kit which, I agree, hangs quite low but I always carry a spare fuel filter and water separator at all times and in the 4 years I've owned the truck I have never had an issue even when plowing. One of these day when I have some time to give the truck a rest, I'll fab up some type of brackets to relocate the filters and pump.*
Also, thanks for the compliments on the vinyl!! This forum is pretty awesome so far and I enjoy reading all of your opinions.*

Steve, great question! For the past 8 years I have always managed to have about 30-40 customers steadily with a boring plain white enclosed trailer and my truck. I was always fairly busy and all of my customers were either from word of mouth (recommended by current customers) or a neighbor to a current customer, etc. I never really looked for work it always somehow managed to come to me, or so I thought.*

Like I said previously, I managed to get 11 new accounts within the first week or so after getting my truck and trailer lettered up. I honestly could not believe the reaction I got from people. I have been and still continue to get compliments every where I go.*

For example, I was fueling up at the local QuickChek (gas station) and the gentleman pumping gas next to me started laughing. I peek around the pump and he said "That looks awesome!" he loved my logo and, after talking with him for a few minutes, I'm now doing his lawn maintenance every week for about $70 per occasion.*
My only regret is not getting my truck and trailer lettered up sooner. Unfortunately the old trailer I was using (7'x16' enclosed) previously wasn't in the greatest shape and just wasn't worth getting lettered up in my opinion. This past winter I bit the bullet, bought a brand new 8.5'x20' v-nose trailer and told myself I was time to give the vinyl a shot. I couldn't be happier with the results. If you're on the fence about getting it done I say take the leap and do it!

It is a great job.

I know you said no offense taken and this post is not about that or to you, but I want to be clear for others.

It's a great job, it looks great. We are on a forum, where I am not from his area. I do not know him. I do not know his background. He asked for an opinion, I gave it. I have worked in a few service industries. And many people like me have had service done to my home, apartment and vehicles.

I am guilty and have seen others guilty of not speaking harshly so as to not upset someone. Hedge's blade sharpening is a good example. Everyone likes Hedge, no one wants to "hurt his feelings" so no one responds to a post about sharpening blades until he says he did not do them, then he gets tons of responses. How does that help Hedge? If he did sharpen them, he gets no response, therefor he has to assume he does a good job, he keeps cutting and they are crap. he gets no response and assumes it is a good job, so he keeps taking them back to the same guy, making his image suffer.

It was not a putdown of the job or his company, but I have had 3 customers call me for bids because the guys they have use a zero turn and go hog wild on their lawns to get done as fast as they can.

Johnny is well known in the area, that does not apply to him, but customers can and do think that so it was a valid comment for others that may want to use speed as an advertising method.

I've got the same trailer but mine has a lot of dents in it.

My truck lost it's balls about 100,000 miles ago and I lost mine when I got married. She keeps them in a jar. I'm not sure where.
