    I thought I would start a pic thread of some of my stuff. Not to much and not to fancy but it gets the job done.

    This is my main winter truck, '00 F-250 5.4

    The day I bought the green truck. Had a cracked head and I had to trailer it home.

    I definitely ain't fitting in that :laughing:

    I rented a t110 one time I loved that thing. Was comfortable and worked like a bandit. Although I stalled it several times trying to pick up way too much topsoil out of a middle of a pile with it.

    Is that a 16 foot dump trailer?

    How's the 5.4 doing towing? I'm picking a 16ft up looking at upgrading work trucks

    Currently have a dodge 5.9 gas 2500

    I added Some stop/turn/tail lights to the back of the spreader. The swing away mount arms block the tail lights, try and keep the people behind me happy. I wired it up to a 4 way trailer plug.

    The trailer is 14 foot, 14k gross.

    The 5.4 is no power house. It will push snow all day, but hook a trailer to it and it's a dog. Light loads like wood are fine, but if I need stone or something heavy I use my 7.3.

    If your in the market for a 5.4 I would look into the '08-'10. Ford went to 3 valves per cylinder and they have a little more power then the 2 valve.

    The V10 (6.8L) are a little more powerful then the 5.4 and they both get (roughly) the same fuel mileage.

    I would look at '03 and newer super dutys. '02 and older Triton engines were prone to blowing spark plugs out of the head.

    That's a good price for a PJ. I'm guessing it's used? I looked at them first and they make a great trailer, just a little to expensive for me.

    Yeah I know that. I used to work on them everyday. I made a lot of money off them lol

    I'm kind of looking for a v10 by 5.4s out number them by far. Diesels an option to just depends on what kind of deals I can find.

    I just can't pay 20k for a truck with 120-150k miles

    I am surprised how much people and dealers ask for used trucks no a days.

    Just installed a shiny new lift ram along with new packing and a new packing nut. This should stop water from getting in my pump now.
