    After the first new truck was totaled before the dealer delivered before the winter.
    This my second new truck. All the upfit i did at my shop at the cost savings of over $4000. My littlest helper coming out to get a ride in the new work truck as it's called at the house

    No i don't. The story was the driver ran into the back of a TT in NJ causing driver was badly injuried. they did make mention of it took sometime to get him out of the truck.
    After that i could not find what i was looking for without ordering one that would of taken 10 to 13 weeks.

    Truck with a speedwing. It will have a 810 for the plowing season. The speedwing was in the shop. All thats left is to run the sander wiring and relocate the rubber sheild on the rear of it.
