The GMC was a peice of crap, plowed with before and beat up pretty hard. Scratched and dented, pretty certain it was in an accident. Yeah the Ford plow had rusted cylinders, the plow was basically rusted to the frame and the pins wouldn't pull. I can't afford to have major breakdowns this year.

I'm getting stressed, really have to make a decision soon.

I missed our first event of this year because I'm in Hawaii, I thought the 20th of November was a safe time to leave, but my Dad and our other employee covered it all. My dad was actually in Mexico too he got home just in time!

I didn't want to speak too soon because so many deals fell through but I finally found a truck to replace my Tacoma. I had a deposit on a 7.3, and then backed out because it was sketchy. I went at looked at a couple Chevys. Then I won another 7.3 on eBay but it didn't mean reserve, then I bid this and won and it didn't meet reserve. But we made a deal and were flying to get it on Wednesday, so I really hope it all checks out.

I'm gonna miss my Tacoma but its not practical anymore. This truck will now take on all of our summer work basically, so that we don't rack up km's on the Cummins. And in the winter it will be doing a couple small lots, the driveways and have all the sidewalk equipment in it, no salter.

Will get more pics when I actually get it

On a side note my brothers got a Doe last night.

Thanks! I cleaned it all up today and it's in such good shape I can't get over it. It passed emissions no problem! Just have to work out some tow mirrors, maybe a back rack, a cb antenna and a stereo deck.

Snow is in full force, put the skid down at the property its staying at, with both the buckets. The Ford is going through the RIV inspection to make sure its compliant. All the trucks sitting happily together.
