    Haven't done much with it yet because the bank messed up on some of the paper work so I'm still waiting to get it tagged and re-titled.

    I've got a temp tag on it for a few more days and will be taking a load of leaves/branches to the dump tomorrow so I'll try to get a few pics of it tomorrow.

    Seems to be doing ok so far, even starting in cold weather, although it does seem to take forever for the engine to warm up. Maybe that's a diesel trait, I have only had gas powered cars/trucks until now. Fuel mileage still sucks though and I haven't got used to the bumpy ride yet.

    Here's a few pics. The truck has been useful but it could definitely use more power and longer gearing, this thing does not like highways and really sucks down the fuel.
