    more pics

    The chemical is Calcium Chloride, and the amount is 10gallon per ton, it should bring the temp down to about -30* ? and should work alot faster too.

    Calcium is EXTREMELY corrosive, it seems to be the only drawback so far. but in the summer time we deal with liquid nitrate so i don't think either is worse than the other :confused:



    the last one is just a pic of my old 953 and lil interantional. haha

    06: yeah we washed everything in SALT-X, hopefully the floor wont rust out of it before we have to push sno though lol, those chem's are harsh

    Jay: yeah it's got a lil 466 in it, it's a good little truck it has less than 200k on it. i just put the pintle plate on it the other night so this is the first time it's hauled the pintle trailer but it did pretty well,.......better than the 5500 lmao

    would you be interested in a FL-60 it's a club cab with a lil' cummin's and a 6spd it's got less than 200k on it to i think.

    JD: Thank's pal......i was proud of my big rock's till you spoke up :drinkup: lol

    attached is a pic of a couple of new people i got to meet today :rolleyes:.......they are just doing thier job i guess. lol

    yeah all that crap, but the one thing they got me on was the stupidist thing.....on my part.


    I have 12k lb plates on the truck and weighed almost double that, so i tried to tell them that i had one plate on front and one on the back so that was 24k right? lol.........turns out. no lmao
