    Figured I'd get out all the equipment and check it over before the snow flies to make sure it's all ready. Figured I'd snag a few pictures for ya guys of the loaders and dumps along with the sweeper.



































    Here ya go.

    O yes. Actually those have been on the shelf in my room since last winter. They have proven to be more reliable then my pickup.

    thats cause there are no chevy logos on them! LOL

    My Chevy has worked great all summer and now that there are 4 more weeks left that I need it; it keeps breaking down. so far I have just put $1400 into it. I just wish it would behave for a few more weeks!!!

    Lol. My truck just likes to nickel and dime me. No major problems like a motor, trans, rear end,etc. Just small stuff that adds up in the long run.

    I'll have to see how my next truck works out since it will probably be a chevy or dodge (only for the cummins)

    yeah thats what this one is doing to me. it does need tires and 6 of them. i could easily drop about 2-3k into it. not sure what i am going to do. i like the ol bugger so i may put some money into if the winter is good. its going to sit so no worries there.

    You should buy an OBS ford f350 gasser with a shot engine but good body and put a 5.9 in there. talk about envy! prolly wouldnt cost you that much and itd be a good learning experiance

    I've got something similar going through my mind. Only it involves a 98-00classic (obs) chevy 2500/3500srw that started life as a 6.5 backed by a nv4500. Prefer a reg cab/long bed and of course 4x4. Drive it was a 6.5 for a while until I gather all the goods then ditch the 6.5 and drop in a slightly modded 12v cummins. Since the nv4500 was also available behind the 12v along with numerous chevy motors I should only have to swap the bellhousings and input shaft I believe.

    I might have 2 hours total into all of them. Didn't really take that long to build.
