    Does this old girl have hydraulic lines to the back for a spreader?

    yes there is lines going to the back but they have a cap on them, looks at one time it had wet lines in the rear. i really don't think the truck has ever salted before or plowed, we put the plow on the ole dog , and only used it one winter.truck had no problem pushing a 6 to 8 inch snow fall.also there is no control in side for a salter,or sander nor do we have a below the tail gate spreader for this rig, you can slide a v-body in her real easy.thanks for looking
