    Now you have enough money to build a bigger garage to park your dodge?

    p.s. I really dont care about brands that much. they're all fine until you drive like a moron.

    Plowing with all that weight from the sander is hard on the frame. We recently had a couple of township trucks that ended up with a cracked front frame cuz they would leave the yard with a full load of sand on
