is that one of quality's trucks?

I think so, the story we got is quality put the truck together for a contract that didnt work out, then it ended up in Pittsburgh. The only thing were not wild about is its on pete spring suspension. Were in the process of looking for something different, but who knows it could be fine we haven't used it yet .......lol ....But i must say the truck is in excellent shape.

A little FYI we had an 04 35 ton on a spring ride w900 if u use the truck a lot u better put the boxes on some kind of flexible material. With ours we put ours on cab springs. In a years time with the spring ride the boxes literally shook there self off the truck. We put them back on with the springs never had another problem.
