    This little baby just turned orginal 100k. I've stored it for seven years, previous owner had it as a garage/camper special, and orginal farmer had it stored in a machineshed since 85 tell local trade in back in 95. This truck is my dream farm truck.

    Problem is I dont have the farm yet. My women wants the garage more open. The storage unit I have is plum full of construction gadgets that cant go away. I just cant justify anymore having the weekend tinker machine. My two options I've come up with is make it a daily driver(I love it but hate it same time) or turn this into the winter only plowing beast. I'm actually thinking with me only operating it the plowing would be the same stress on it as daily driving. I'm just throwing ideas out there because I wont sell it but really need to figure a practical use for my tinker machine or the women has to go.

    I'd tell her tough cookies and put it back in the garage. :drinkup:

    Nice truck! A fresh coat of paint and she'll look like new!

    All depends if you got the (DOE RAE ME) to buy a plow ? if soo then I say do it and make some more doe rae me and put on a car port off the side of the garage and park it off to the side so it would be a win win situation
