    11k mean whole that was on weight scale.

    I bet he scrap up like 2000-2500 lb.

    We do scrap every week. Most time 1,500-2000 lb. Heavier I have was 10K scrap. That was with my 01 F250.

    I hauled some scrap in a few months ago and I got more money for 23lb of #1 stainles than I got for 600lb of light iron.

    Yes the F-250 badges are going onto the new truck the fenders and doors were actually in very good condition... but the sledge hammer looked more appealing then a wrench..
