I've got an older Chevy with the 6.5L turbo diesel 2500, so I understand. I am the opposite though. I am in school for automotive and wanting to be a mechanic now and keep the business on the side and for my son one day (at least some equipment). Then the landscapers will make fun of me as the weekend warrior and not the full-time guy.

Nice Tiger trailer. I bought mine in 2010. You can't beat their prices.

I could tell that was a Texas rig because of the rims on the truck.
