Thanks a million guys!.

Ever tried to carry a pole ladder(15ft long closed) with a sore lower back?.
I've told the Boss about it today and he said he might get me a new truck, besides, you cant really get new parts for a truck that old, which sort of blew my mind, 10 years old and no parts??.

Thanks for your replies guys.
