    cus its a bad azz truck . the better question . where are you keeping all this ? do you rent a shop or at your folks house . Thats one nice trailer




    I'm out of room were looking at yards now . I picked up a S.S . but can't buy a trailer till I get a bigger yard.

    Really only wanted a 10k trailer but for price and avalability I did this one. And of planning ahead for when I have to purchase something bigger. I figured why buy a trailer now and have to sell it when i buy a different truck and then loose out on the sale of a used trailer and the cost of sales tax. Might be odd but the truck has gotten me this far.

    IDK about being bad ass but it works. It got me started and it will continue for me this year. I store as much as I can at my parents house, we have a 24 by 24 building and a 36 by 44 I believe. My grandma has a shop wheree my grandpa used to work out of about the same size so i keep some stuff there once and awhile. Brother bought ground so when he gets the building up Ill rent space off of him along with a pad for mulch storage.

    I broke down and bought a ford today, unfortantly she has spark plugs but could pass the truck up for the condition it was in. now I have something i can pull my trailers with.

    Anymore, i halfway think I wouldn't miss my diesel. I mean the mileage is nice, but the 60+ dollar oil changes and the pricey parts when it actually does break down kinda suck. I never pull anything heavy enough to even really need it either, I usually have 3000lbs behind the truck, and maybe 5 times a year I'll have 8k.

    I have not been around here for awhile. Nice truck travis, you putting a plow on that?


    I went to a 14 day cutting schedule here. No rain yet this month and I will only hurt the yard if I get on it now. We have some rain moving in so I hope that helps. Only did three yards and they turned on the sprinkler systems finally.

    I actually saw someone cut a yard that was completely dormant. :hammerhead::hammerhead: I wish I could screw over my customers and get away with it.
