I'm sorry...me again. I've spent the last few hours reading through past forum discussion groups here and they've been incredibly helpful, though I still desperately need sample specs. ALSO, and the reason I'm posting 2 times...because our small town budget is SOOOO incredibly tight, we're wondering if there might be some manufacturers that just have some standard rescue trucks that they mass assemle and sell, with the logic being that those might be quite a bit cheaper than having one custom built??? Granted, we might have to make some saccrifices and not get exactly what we want, but I assure you that we'll be happy with anything since it will be a vast improvement over what we now have. Any thoughts on that? Any vender suggestions (for either "standard" or custom builders, expecially near TN)? thanks
