I switched back to hauling dirt locally when I was offered a six month old 389 and a set of 1997 Beall belly dumps. I've spent a couple months dressing up the truck, which was plain white with no chrome or lights when I got it. I hope to take it down to a truck show next month, I've got a bit more preparing to do though. 500 ISX, eighteen speed, 3.36s.

Thanks folks. Yes Southbound, all the dirt trailers in our fleet are on singles, which seems to work out fine. If we have a blowout, we're never too far for a service truck to come save the day and it's a lot less tires to watch and you can't get big rocks stuck between 'em. You almost never see a single belly dump in our area, everyone runs doubles, haha.
