I bought it off craigslist about 50 miles from here. The guy was using it for construction work and decided he needed something that got better fuel mileage. I couldnt beat the price. He bought it somewhere out west from the leasing company auction.It was originally a csx truck. So far, no major problems, all around good truck.

Gold pro - Ill get few more up. Its not exactly finished though. Still have digging going on for the septic and finishing the electric. I still have to drywall the office and landscape the front as well.

so after my post i had a large metal post on the ladder rack on my utility. it was unstrapped in the driveway and i figured i woudl drive closer to unload it. well it slid off and smacked up my hood, got pissed nailed the breaks which blew a brake line.....while fixing the brake line i noticed the shackel hangers were nearly rotted through and what was left was 90% cracked.

luckily they were cheap and for a truck with 260K miles, the leaf spring bolt came right out, grinded off the rivets, just need to put it back together. it never goes that easy...for once i can say i got lucky
