    That sounds high, probably a gas engine too. I bought a 87 l9000 dump 36200 gvw yesterday with 290 cummins and 7ll road ranger for scrap value - $2000 and drove it home 50 some miles. Got the lights all working today and started sanding the hood. I'll have it painted up and put to work by the end of the week.

    If I must......I painted the cab this afternoon and it just started raining. Looks like the red is holding on. It's a little too tall to bring in the garage and keep dry.
    I have to weld up some board holders on the bed so I can get 10 tons on instead of the estimated 7.5 with no boards. Also found the front leafs are cracked so before I do any hauling I have to do that too. It was a turnpike truck so it was orange at first, Then someone brush painted it red and it faded to pink. Then about 1/4 of the pink flaked off so I drove home a pink and orange polka dot 10 ton on Monday. Paint was at the top of the priority list. :hammerhead:

    It is setup for a plow with fancy electric hydraulic controls but no plow was included. It's setup for a spreader as well. Air brakes setup for trailer too.
