Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


I have been searching the vehicles folder and havent found too many pics of posted work trucks and was thinking about starting this thread



Heres mine I just got last Thursday.......I will be getting it lettered in a few weeks as soon as one of my large jobs starts. Its a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500......I will be upgrading the suspension as time goes by and doing a few other misc. upgrades as well when the funds permit. I will post pics of the progress.















So lets see your truck/van/trailers

Re: Post Your Work Truck/van Thread


I noticed a lot of you here have a enclosed trailer, that makes lots of sense.....truth be told you rarely see that here in Cali.....mainly landscaping companies utilize the enclosed trailers.....what do you guys with the enclosed trailers do with debris from the job.....you have 2 trailers on sight?

I bet the reason not many use trailers in cali is people will steal them.

As far as trash goes... roll offs unless its only a truckload. Then it goes in the truck.

I'm going to make this thread a sticky. It's cool seeing everyone's vehicles.

Great Idea
