    I just picked this up this winter (Jan 2010) I figured it would come in handy haul stuff to scrap and for work.

    Thanks guys.
    Yeah it's in Not Bad shape. Small rust hole in the driver's side floor. and the steer tires are a little weather cracked, so I'll have to replace those for safety.
    Last nite ( March 09/10) me and my son inlaw installed a new PTO =$750 ouch
    As soon as we can find some time again we're gonna finish installing the pump and the rest of the plumbing, then the deck will be operational

    Wow, that's a beast. What a great truck and a great deal it sounds like. How's it working out for you?

    Yap It's got the thirsty 8.2 L Detroit Turbo Diesel :happy:
    The good thing about it. Is any of my boys can drive it. Cause it's got the electronic rear split axle and hydraulic brakes.
    The bad thing about it is I can't park it at home. The neighbors are starting to complain :grrrrrr:
    So I'm gonna sell it and just buy an open car hauler trailer.

    Can you keep it at a local gas station? Let them use it if you can store it there....The Barter system...

    Not a bad idea. But then there is the liability factor. If they damage the truck or break it.
    Or if a customer's car gets damage by accident.
    It my truck, my insurance Am I libel.
