My 2012 half ton gets about 15. I never pull anything and rarely is it loaded down. The power is decent though.

Re: Growing Business - Vehicle


You can't beat Ford's 3/4 ton STX package in my opinion. We just picked this one up for just under 40,000 periods between an XLT and Excel. Has the nice screen, all power, four-wheel drive excetera.

We got an SXT like that one but a 1 ton dually four wheel drive for just over 50,000. Diesel on that one.

How is it the crappy companies seem to buy out the good ones?

I guess because trailers are so prevalent here, I have never understood wanting a lot of rack. When I was still wearing bags my box trailer had ladder racks on the side of it, but other than that what is throw them in the back of the truck or onto a flatbed.

The only time I've used one was when I had a box bed, we were working downtown Austin working on high-rises. We did not even have any trailers.

Re: Growing Business - Vehicle


I have a ladder rack on my old truck. Wouldn't be without it.

If I need to haul a 24 foot ladder or my 20 foot plank, or two beams, it isn't worth hauling a flatbed trailer. It is also useful in hauling windows or doors.

I do have a lot of stuff delivers these days, but to haul a few 16 or 20 foot pieces of lumber, it's a no brainer.

That being said, I haven't put one on the new truck and don't plan on it.

I've always just put it over my tailgate and tied to my headache rack.

I don't have a headache rack on my new truck. LOL

Seems like somebody around here's always hooked up to a trailer, but if you don't need to take a trailer we just throw them on with the headache rack - or did. My brother my dad and one of my superintendent's like bed covers instead of tool boxes. I guess they have somebody else haul the ladder. LOL
