    After unloading 1 1/2 tons of barnlot waste into mom's 4,000 sq. ft. garden. A hoist would sure be nice! Got my little bro off his bum long enough to help though LOL.

    I gave $2,000 for it. Here it is loaded (room for another bob-cat scoop, this was three it could hold 4 or 5 but I had a toolbox on the left side that I did not want to bury). Started to level the springs on the right side, but there are 4 overload springs it didn't come close to. This is what the truck was built to do- haul heavy (1.5 tons on deck here, not alot in the scheme of things, it should be good for at least 4,000 lbs).

    No, not going to LOL. I still think they make the white truck look better though, because it doesn't have the chrome trim around the grille and headlights. Similar trucks with chrome trim look fine w/o the covers :p

    Thats a weird looking intake. Is it full fuel injection or is it fords ''variable venturi''(throttle body) or something like that.
