    What kind of tranny does it have? If auto, I would forego the dump bed, and go straight to the 12 guage shotgun shells.
     
  3. Rugby.. If just a hoist is needed northentool.com has them.

    Better yet, I think Omaha Standard is made right by you.

    Any thoughts on the diesel w/out the turbo? (One less part to have to repair) The 91 comes with the international engine, right?

    As far as I know, the 7.3 was always a Navistar motor. Go to Ford Truck enthusiasts and ask there, they'll know better than me on this.

    as far as not having a turbo, on that motor, I think its a minor issue, as that truck could pull a brick outhouse off its foundation without complaint I think. not that one would have a reason to do that, but just that it CAN be done.
