i had just got that truck going again so i didnt want to drive it very far. i bought it about a year ago as a rust bucket and tore it down to the frame rails sandblasted and painted it. then put a new dump box on it. i also had to do a bunch of mechanical work to it so ive just been running it for jobs around us.
