It's an 01. It's a great truck for me, except it's lacking 4wd. It came with an under the tailgate salt spreader, central hydraulics, and a 10 foot fisher trip edge plow. That and it was built by a local truck builder who beefed up the suspension and such.

Got a great deal as ISU was unloading it last spring when they replaced it with a new F-550 (which I want) with 4wd and a replacement tailgate salt spreader. I think new they paid 50k for the 550.

Wall finished, back fill today and schedule the asphalt company to come in and re-surface the area between the wall and driveway.

they paid a lot more then 50k for a truck up fitted like that. yah 2wd sucks but with weight in the bed you'll be fine...with that setup you should try and sub for your town plowing or sub for a guy with some large commercial lots, you should be able to pull in between $100-120 an hour with the salter and 10' plow.

the chevys didnt offer 4x4 in their HD 3500s until I believe 02/03??

Na, I'd do it myself and come up with the parts. I probably could do it for 2k.

Thanks man. I love the look of natural stone, but I hate the mortaring you have to do to make it.

That thing shouldn't go anywhere. There is geo-grid holding it in place, 4 inches of concrete for the footer around the culvert, and two 4 inch holes, 18 inches deep filled with concrete on each side of the culvert, all on the clay layer that is there.
