    Well as some of you may know. This is the truck that a member was selling on here. I have to say that 90plow (Eric) was a stand up guy to deal with. Everything he said was 100% true and didn't lie to me about anything. I did end up getting the back-rack and the light bar too.

    The underside is rusty but not that bad for being a 15year old plow truck. The truck runs like a champ. It fires right up and idles smooth. The tranny shifts very smooth as well even under a full pedal. The plow could use a paint job but thats about it. Works great. Overall i think i got a hell of a nice set up for the money.

    Here are some pics. I plan on tinting the windows and trying one of the DIY spray on bedliners. Also looking for a toolbox for the bed. I will update this thread as i slowly fix her up over the next couple months.

    Thanks for asking about my dad. As much as i hate to say this but he is going downhill. He is feeling better and is up moving around more. But we got bad news on friday that the cancer is now in his liver. Just taking it day by day.

    Any pictures of the undercarriage? Rust? I was eyeing this truck and would have been more serious if it were a 5 speed.

    I'm very sorry to here about your dad.

    That is a very good looking truck I had been eying it myself but also deemed it to far to drive a new truck. Was the rust on the fenders fixed?

    Hoping to hear better news about your dad,

    Nice OBS Ford. Does that have a Power Stroke or an International? Are you going to leave that plow on or put a Fisher on it like your other truck?

    Looks great!

    On another note, I know I'm a complete stranger, but my dad passed away last May of Stage 4 Pancreatic and Liver cancer after a tough battle of 4 months. If you just want to talk, feel free to PM me.

    I am only 20, and this has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with.
