    Well, it's final. I bought a 1995 F250 XL 351w gasser, auto, 4wd, 69k miles , fisher 8' minute mount plow, and custom built back rack. I have to take the lettering off, but here's a photo of it the day i went to check it out.

    i don't have any photos of it with the plow on, as i get home at 7:30pm.


    u-joints, tires and possibly the strobes go on saturday.

    i have a 94 extended cab 2 wheeler with over 200,000 miles on it. been a really reliable truck. only left me stranded once, severely gas fouled a really shot set of plugs, change them and still runnin strong.
    tranny acted up once but a flush and filter solved that at bout 160,000.

    hope you have as good a luck as i have had

    :mad: no, actually i'd like my fleece jacket back. It's been over a month since the bbq, i realized i left it in your SUV and offered to pay shipping, and i have yet to see it yet. If money is a problem, i'll send the $$ first, but i don't think it takes 1 month + for UPS to send a package. I even bought a truck before i got it back.

    I would end up spending more in gas $ than the fleece is worth.

    new truck

    Truck looks good.......for a ford lol. Does look like it needs some new sneakers. I'm still searching for the meyers mount and stuff for my truck. 2 people have it in stock here but one wants $750 for both a nd the other is $700. And I'm going to order the lights and wiring. Much better prices in angelos and j thomas. Good luck with the truck.... I'll send some pics of my rigs when there both done and painted.

    I think fireman is wearing the fleece and just does not want to give it up. i once checked the price on those hot pink fleece jacket and you are right you would spend more on gas to go get it.

    Maybe a couple cold days is what it will take for snow to learn to take care of his toys lol.

    Accidentally leave a blower at an account, have fun trying to track that baby down a few hours later...

    "can you honestly tell me you never left anything at a job? I know I have."

    Why did you assume I never left anything behind? Of course I have, and usually it was gone by the time I remembered where I left it.

    Thats why, now everything has its place in the truck and on the trailer, nothing moves til its all back where it belongs.

    I operate the same way. I did not assume though. If someone was to tell me they had not left anything I would not beleive that.

    thanks guys, we got plates on it yesterday. the 8' plow is sitting in the driveway, i'll get some pix of it after i get the strobes, tires and U-joints done this weekend, along with a photo of the truck w/ the plow on. i have to compound off the lettering and lame stripes on it.
