    I just picked up this 1990 IH 4700. 72K, DT360, 5sp, central hydros front and rear 26K GVWR. I'm tired of being overloaded in my GM 3500s so this should cure that problem. Hopefully I'll find time this summer to respray the whole truck black to match my other trucks. It will be getting a Blizzard 8611 with an under tailgate style spreader for the winter time. I can't wait to push some snow with this thing.

    UM cancel the 8611. That truck is defently a ex county truck. Which is why it has a extend from frame and bumper. That truck probably had a 3000lbs valk 10' two way plow on it. That will destroy a 8611. Trust me I install snow plows in winter for a buddy. We do everything from a tacoma up to triaxel dumps.
