Great looking truck Joe. I hope it treats you well. You planning on putting a plow on her? Hopefully we will need it this year!

Thanks Mike, I was thinking of putting a plow on, but i really cant afford it this year. Maybe next year ill hang a blade. I see you run Lesco, i have a lesco w/b myself. Great machines.

If I can fine a pair of tow mirrors for a good enough price ill purchase some.
Mike the truck set me back $12,500 + $700 to get it registered.

Very fair price. Keep up on the maintenace and you will get another 100,000 out of that engine. I have 153,000 on mine and still going strong. To bad to rest of the truck is falling apart on me.

I hear very good things about those engines. I just bought new tires for mine yesterday. I may ad a truck loader this year, im not sure yet.

If you do alot of cleanups, a loader is a great investment and time saver. Get one, you won't regret it!

Thats nice, I would have one if i didn't have an insert. Did you sell the Explorer yet?

I like how yours has the roof clearance lights.

My dang explorer is still in my driveway. I want to get at least $6500 for it.
You can buy ford clearence lights, but there probly a pita to install. I love your setup though, maybe ill add a dump insert next season.
