Default Building something different

So last year my dad’s government job of 20 years was privatized to a company two hours away and offered to him at minimum wage. So he decided to take the offered buyout, I was swamped with plumbing and quite frankly starting to get bored with roughing in houses and service work. So I decided then to branch into excavation and septic due to needing it done constantly. So far since then I’m averaging 3200$ a week in excavation plus plumbing. I purchased a cheap dump truck, old ford 7.3. After about 3 jobs it’s way too small.
So I’ve decided to say screw it and I’ve purchased a international 4300. So I’ve got a box I’m looking at but also might just go new. It’ll also be set up for sewer installation.

That sounds great man. I'll say it nicely before the others bark at you, I hope you have a trench box
