    I didn't have any there, to cheap,lol. I left for an hour between the afternoon pulls and the night stuff to go charge my camera battery, grab food, get a cooler filled for the night, and get out of the heat for a bit.

    Yup the yellow one with the batman theme was Charlie's. One of my friends also works there, a guy by the name of Dan with a black powerstroke sound familiar?

    daniel bigelow right? dan's truck is really nice, he just got it within the last year right? i think i remember him saying one of the previous owners put the suspension of a 550 on the front end but he still only got an 8' plow. I'm only at the farm when we are stacking hay/straw and it's always with daniel. I really like working there and i've got nothing but good things to say about everyone on that farm.

    Yup, He got the truck last fall. 02 f350, f550 front springs (put on by the guy with the DAB truck above who was the first owner of the truck), 50hp chip, small lift with 295s. He got a pretty well beat 8ft plow for a good deal, him and I straightened it, got it repainted and assembled. It's a very nice truck and I'm not even a ford guy,lol. When he picks up the plow his truck doesn't even squat. I told him to get a 9ft but an 8ft barelly fits down the one driveway he does. He can always get wings if he wants.
