    preen, not sure if i've said this before, but i really like the blue you have for fleet colors. You have some real nice trucks, and trailers too, but the blue makes look better. :drinkup

    Its not so much the painting part that I am worried about....Its the dis-assembly and reassembly that takes so much time...Its doable but just lots of work to make it pretty;)

    Yea you PTO guys don't really like the pony motor set up;)

    I like the idea on only one motor.I was watching a tv show the other day and they had remote steering in the rear that would be nice dont even have to get out of the truck.

    We have been looking into that but have not found any options we really like yet that would be reliable and work the way we want.

    Needs chrome stemco's. Other that the usual Murray quality shines through

    and it would be 99.95% cooler with incandescent betts tanker lights down the side. Not that the led's aren't cool but betts lights with 1156's in them would be bad azz.
