    I have been on this site for years and have finally decided to post some pictures. Ford is a 99 7.3 that just rolled 200k this week! and the chevy is a 1979 k10 with 80k original miles. with no rust! just some faded paint. do about 50% residentials and 50% commericals. Couple pictures of the trucks cleaned up and the day i brought the k10 home. not all the pictures will download but its a start!

    Nice pics. Ford looks really clean. I wouldn't mind finding an old chevy like that for back and forth to the shop and to throw a straight blade on.

    That old K10 is just aching for a suspension lift and some 35's.

    You lifted the Ford so it's only fair.

    6 inch skyjacker lift is sitting in the garage for it right now. My intention was to never plow with it. i was going to be a fun project truck and eventually a restoration project till i got to much work for one snowplow to handle. But in the spring its gonna be a whole differnt truck!

    Couple pictures of an enclosed trailer i picked up today. $600 bucks its a 8x18 just needs some paint and tires. and another pic of some progress i made on it the past day. you can kinda see the stroke in winter mode with the winter tires on. The woods sides only go on when im working and come off when im not.

    Find yourself a Dana 60 front & 14 Bolt full floater rear and some 37" Goodyear MTR's.

    I have two of those old Chevy's, an 85 K20 with Fisher MM2 back up plow truck & 86 K10. Both trucks have a 4" lift with 35's. They are addictive that's for sure. Cheap to fix.
