    look what showed up today. it's hot a heck here to day but I managed to but out bed on it... already had the ditch witch loaded up on it do i ran with it.

    initial impressions, great power. nice cab good ride.
    few disappointments from the buying experience so far.
    1) truck transporter evidently smoked all the way up from texas. i'm highly sensitive to it, so much so that as a kid of the 80s i couldn't go to monster truck rallies because the cigerate smoke here in NC would make me an my twin brother so sick

    2) was supposed to have a reece receiver on the back... someone neglected it

    3) they forgot to get the lighting hookup for the gooseneck position so i'll have to have that done.

    4) transporter literally dropped it off with about 20ox IMG_3884.jpeg of diesel in the tank so i had to go get some before moving it. I don't know how he did that but my hat off to him.

    Looks good. I keep remembering at the wrong time to PM you how it was coming along.

    Still interested in your F750.
