    Got the plow and salter out and mounted on my other Chevy. I'd like to make some wings for the plow but those can wait a bit. Going to be my first year plowing with a 5spd so it should be interesting the first few storms.

    I like it. Why waste money on a new truck. Plow and salt, you are going to be rich by the end of this winter.:drinkup:

    For those who thought I was serious I was just messing around.

    The plow is for one of our atvs, salter goes on my 1/2ton and the lightbar is an extra I have.
    And the s10 is my daily driver. :help:

    Mount a fisher on that for 1 time and fill that salter, you might straighten the frame up. (looks like shes bending in the middle...)

    I wish paint was the only problem it has. :laughing:

    -Parking brake is non existant
    -Dash lights work sometimes
    -Wipers randomly come on and turn off by themselves
    -No plate lights
    -Takes 3 or 4 trys to latch the drivers door from the outside
    -Hard to get into 1st and Reverse usually
    -Has Zero power, I usually cruise at 50-55mph and it takes forever to get there
    -Drivers window rattles
    -Hood rattles and flexes like crazy
    -Grill is held on by 2 bolts and flops going down the road
    -Radio doesn't work
    -Lots of weird vibrations
    -Rear sliding window doesn't latch, well it has no latch.
    -Drivers door won't unlock from the outside somtimes.
    -Has Cold Air Intake because the inner fender is rusted away

    I'm sure there is more stuff wrong that I can't think of.
