It was a touch under $70k all in. About $10000 more than our last two trucks, Chevy's with pro1200se direct drives. I am curious to see what the water usage is compared to the pro1200s, since I'm sure this truck will bypass some water, but it certainly gets hotter and gets there quicker than the pro1200s. Sadly I'll probably only get to use this truck until Thanksgiving then I'm going to turn it over to one of my guys.

I would have had to order a 350. The gvw difference is 500 lbs and I'm well under even with full waste and water tanks. I was a little leery of not having the 4.10s but it handles fine and seems to have enough power, but not much extra lol

I bought it for $120000, but have put $50,000 in it, and need to put another 10 or so into remodeling the office. I have 5000 feet of warehouse space and 1200 office in a decent blue collar hood in Akron OH. My nut is about $1500/month with taxes and utilities and it will be paid off in 12 years. There are a couple benefits of living in the Midwest lol.

That cdv filter is pretty nice too I haven't used an external filter in a long time, the 1200s have a pull out filter behind the vac ports
