Just in case anyone is interested in what the 4500 looks like with an 11' AirFlo dump body ....
Sweet looking work truck.
Didja keep the 97 for play?
I would love to borrow that for a couple days
Ah yes, I am keeping the old 97 just in case (knock on wood) any EGR or DPF gremlins appear that keep the new truck down for a day or two.
That old 12 valve is just too good to give up and to damn easy to work on.
The new truck will be a worker only and mainly on weekends, so the milage will be low every year, but hard miles.
You and everyone in my neighborhood and at work.
I got people asking to hire me for some work with it, but since its a "Not For Hire" truck (Ahhhuumm), I can't leagally take any money for doing any work for someone using the truck.
Looks better now with the box on it.
hows the miles per gallon
At this time I only have a little over 600 miles on the truck.
The computer tells me I am getting just under 13 mpg. I have yet to hand calculate a tank full since I have only burnt about a tank and a half.
It is only a weekend truck used for hauling and towing. Its basically a 50% empty and 50% loaded situation.
Hopefully it will see a little better milage as the miles go by, but then again I didn't buy the truck for its fuel efficiency.
