    Well, I bought this beast last week, and thought I'd post some pics for youse guys to critique :laugh:

    Pretty nice truck - I wish it were a 3/4 ton, but hey, it pulls everything I need and has zero problems going off road. I didn't actually wash it before I took the pics, so it's a bit dusty.

    MJS, good looking truck, looks really clean to me. Do plan to put a different exhaust system on it too? I have already told myself that the next truck I buy will be a 3/4 ton. I haul too much for a 1/2 ton at times. Good luck with the truck

    I'd say he has a 350 but I'm not positive on that.

    Lawn Freak...when I test drove mine I thought it had a 350, the motor obviously looked like a 350, the original owner thought it had a 350 until I looked at the sticker under the hood and it said "5 Liters" which is a 305. Personally, I wouldn't have looked at it knowing that it had a 305, but the truck was so clean and well taken care off that I had to buy it. I have exhaust on it now and it sounds mean, almost like a 350.
