    2000 1 ton dumper
    6.5 Turbo Diesel
    116k on the clock

    And the story starts:

    Picked it up in this shape:
    ( I think a shark got a hold of the seat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Still wasn't done yet:

    Changed the mirrors to a set that had the LED Running Lights in them
    Added an LED strobe the the back of the box
    Got a new set of doors (w/o holes in them)
    Leveled the dump box
    Added a CB

    Now she is almost ready to push

    Nice truck dood, move the PMD from underneath the Turbo Power cover to the front nostril where the plow wiring is. Look up remote PMD mount on google, it will save you quite a few problems.

    Man that looks really awesome, I don't think I'd object if it was sitting at my shop one morning when I show up. :)

    I am sitting at about $10,000.

    No, you can get them on ebay. They mount right to stock mounting holes

    Already did that. That was in general matinence stage.

    I forgot about you and figured you moved on. If you still want them I still have them sitting in the shop.
