    I started a trend. :D Nice looking truck, we all know they never get cleaned too well so long as temps are hovering around freezing. I know I wash mine after every storm but it never looks perfect till temps warm up to be able to clean and chamois it all. I wish we could have the nice blue lights you guys have. :) BTW, what's that piece sticking up behind the rear glass in the front of the bed? Just curious.

    btw, for those who contemplate using rear ballast, check out my rear tires. The front have a little more tread, but the extra 660lbs in the rear helps out a lot. I'm hoping to make it through this winter on these.

    And finally, the interior. The leather makes it a little nicer on the long runs.

    Nice Looking Rig.

    Blue Light?? What are your color's up there for Emergency vehicles. I assume Police must be Red, What is Fire??

    Police/Fire/EMS around here use red/white.

    As long as the red is in there, people know it's emergency.

    Everyone knows blue is used for snowplows/snow removal equipment.

    Nice looking rig. I like the Euro lights and clear corners and stainless grille. Gives it a sporty plow truck look. Good luck this winter man.

    Everything is stock, but I have the torsion bars cranked. Plus the 660lbs of weight in sand bags in the back.

    The New ones are sure nice looking.

    However since we do not get much rust on vehicles here,
    I feel it is important for me to show a photo of good old
    working trucks.

    1976 Dodge 300, short box one ton, photo was taken prior to
    Fisher HD installed.
