    They started with that body style 21 years ago. They get old and wear out like everything else.

    Personally I liked the 92 to 96 style better.

    sad but true. after an instructor at the training school does an evaluation and see how much retraining Im going to need. Im going to get a good truck driving job and restore or find a 1987-1991 Ford F250 4x4 Ext cab perfect or almost perfect. but that down the road first I got to get a job.

    man that truck is clean!!! very nice lookin. that is definately a rare find. but i also prefer the 92-97 body style better. but that one looks great. i doubt their that hard to find. i see those all over the place around here.

    They are getting hard to find. There are a few around here, but they are all beaten to heck and back. That one you posted is the nicest one I've seen in a very long time. I'd be all over that for the price if I had a need for it.

    sadly its been two years since my first training. so i have to be retrain.
    I still have my class A CDL which Ive got to renew in Feb.
    most company require if you been out of a semi more then 12 months you have to be retrained. The test Im going to get at school will tell me how much I need to relearn. I hope to find somthing Local so maybe I could start a small LCO. But I'll take what I can get
