You can get a class b cdl pretty easy. Just get your yearly dot physical and take the test. Then you won't have to worry about it.

Go drive that dump truck.

I would guess she's gonna hold 8-10 yards, but probably only dump 5 ton or so.

Your gonna need a newer dually to easily tow that dump trailer loaded to the max imo. Drw 6.7 will tow it like a tard with a radio flyer.

Or get it delivered, take 2 trips etc

Yeah I might have to take a trip over there this weekend to check it out.

That's funny about the 6.7!

Yeah that's true you're not the first person to tell me I don't have to put all 12 yards in the trailer. I just like saving time and some jobs there's not a good place to dump in the street. all the mulch has to stay on the trailer and by the time I got half of it unloaded the mulch yard would've been closed. Oh well I was have to come up with a different strategy. It seems if I want to toe that dump trailer with 12 yards and not totally maxed out my current 2500 Silverado or even an older Ford diesel… I will just have to do two separate trips.

Now that I'm thinking about it if I were to get that 350 dump truck I could put some of the mulch in that truck and park it at the job site then take my Silverado and dump trailer back to the mulch yard and get the other half and have it all at this job site.

Early 2003 were all 7.3 L. It was late 2003 they went to 6.0 on everything.

You shouldn't have any issues hauling 12 yards in the dump trailer and your tools in the box with the 7.3. It might take a little bit to get up to speed but way faster than the cheby. As for braking. You shouldn't have any issues either. As long as your trailer brakes are adjusted correctly.

I would advise against a 6.7l for a truck that is gonna be beat on and face plenty of stop n go traffic in town. The regens and def fluid are gonna kill your fuel cost...

Where as the 7.3l just wont get to 55mph as quickly as a 6.7 it. It doesn't have a complicated emissions system that does not do well is constant stop n go traffic.

I guess the only problem would be the ability of that 2001 to be able to safely tow that much weight. Like I said, that trailer with 12 yards of mulch is around 12,925. I thought someone mentioned earlier this truck was only rated for 10,000??
