we currently us day cab semi trucks for our shipping container sales and rental business.
We're considering trying a Dodge 5500 or F550 size truck with a 40' tilt bed trailer and see how they work out for us...
we do long hauls with reefer containers that weight up to 12,000 Lbs. Also do a lot of local deliveries where four wheel drive would be a plus.
so my questions are:
1. leaning towards the 5500 dodge. any major issues with these trucks?
2. what are the down sides of using a four wheel drive for this application?
any opinions are appreciated!
