    '87 f-800 w/5 yd stainless torwell salter. Bought it in the fall, ended up picking up a couple accounts that need to be salted everytime we plow, so going to use the v box in back of my dump.

    Used it a couple times this year on salt only runs-I worked all the bugs out. Runs great.


    Its really just to big at this point


    429 Gas 5+2 Trans Approx 55k miles

    $4500

    Im kinda confused, does the spreader come with it or not? and what were the bugs?

    Yep-Truck and Spreader.

    Bugs-

    I tightened the spreader chain, Changed the belts on the spreader(Engine to clutch), Changed oils, repaired some lights-interior and exterior.

    Changed a gas tank, changed a electronic box(pretty much like a newer vechicle's computer)

    I went through it-Its pretty much ready to go.

    I was going to change the tire size- It could use 3 new tires as it sits but I was going to change them to 11r 22.5 with budd wheels.

    never "broke" on but ive bent many of them. i drove alot of heavy haul and most of them had daytons on them. the BUDD's just wouldnt hold up.

    To be honest with you, I only wanted to change to 11r 22.5 cause the're tubeless and budd wheels cause they are a little safer
