    Not a bad looking truck and plow. The truck is starting to rust out tough but, that's nothing a little bondo can't fix.

    Yeah, CNY is horrible. I rebuilt the engine in 2009. So in the summer 2010 it was supposed to get a new body. I have new doors, fenders and a tailgate. All i need are weld in cab corners and a box. Oh yeah, i need to find someone to paint it. I suck at body work, i can do mechanical all day. I just have to milk it through one more winter.... The front fenders are rotted so bad i get salt and snow build-up in my intake box on the fender, so during the winter i run a hot air intake.. directly off the turbo, a little more protective, but i can see the difference in EGT's...

    First harnesses are mounted, 2 trucks are ready to go with salter and plows, 2 dumps need the salter put on and a couple more harnesses mounted.......couple more days and we are good to go if needed.

    Holy Crap. I def would have found a better solution then a 6.5 for that amount of money.

    Lets just say its not any ol' 6.5 anymore. Its far from stock and will smash any somewhat modded cummins and strokes. All i need is to get a new turbo and were balls to the wall:mechanic: Im very happy with the way this turned out.
