    Heres one of the other dodges... It was between 93 and 96. It is a Dodge Ram 2500, and it had the Big V-10 in it.And it had a contractor cap. It also had Air Springs...We were gonna use it as our tow rig, and keep tools and stuff in the back, and then put vinyl on the cap, but we never used it...

    Today was my neices 15th birthday, so I stopped by my brothers house, and snapped some pics of his stuff...

    The F650 is his and the company he works at, he is the vice president there...

    The Car is a mid 70's Firebird, it has a 460 Cu In Chevy big Block in it, and it makes 450 H.P. at the rear wheels...

    The Red dump truck is his older dump truck, it is a Ford F8000, or 9000, i dont remember. He also had a newer one, but that blew a front tire last week, and did font flips.. It was a complete loss, but his driver was ok... Amazingly it had a full load too... Oh, yea he owns a dump trucking company: KEGZ Trucking. He also has some other trucks stored at his crane yard...

    Well, yesterday we started a tree job at my buddies house... My friends dad wanted the whole thing cut down, but his wife wanted the dead stuff cut off... All we had to do was cut it down, and chop it up a little because their cousin wanted the logs for a wood burner... Yesterday we had to quit due to storms moving in, and heavy rain.

    You wont find me climbing trees, especially with a saw. But my brother loves climbing, especially with saws... He dose it the old "fashion" way, a ladder, regular boots, and a rope hooked up to the truck. No lifts, spikes, safety harnesses....

    We went back to day and finished it up...

    FYI- Yesterday we filled their trailer up twice with logs...

    I want to know how much you would have charged for this project... We were there for about 5 hours... 2 guys...

    Heres the last of the pics... He said he will probably have us back in the spring to finish it off... My brother also climbed up on their roof to replace the sealer around the soil pipe (he replaced 2).

    Here are some stripes i laid with the Metro 48... I know their not straight because it pulls to the right, and it was kinda dark while i was cutting the lawn, and the right tire has a slow leak... I still got a little more to do tomorrow morning, and i did a checker pattern after i took these pics... Ill post a few tomorrow...

    I will also take a few photos of where my lil bro cut... He is only 13, and is just learning to use the ZTR and the WB.... Lets say he has room for improvement... :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    My dodge had almost the exact same plow on it before we bought it, according to the paper work it had an 8.5' fisher on it, my truck's the same color as well. Heck if it wasn't for the damage to the rear of the bed and the year it's about the same truck as I've got. I think I saw it on Ebay year or two ago.

    How many miles did it have on it before you sold it? Mines a 99' with 72,425 right now.
