• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

I broke down and bought a truck with a plow this weekend.
I'm a Ford fanatic at heart but couldn't pass on the deal I found.

I bought a '75 Dodge 1/2 ton shortbox. It has a 440 and NP435 four speed(one with granny low). Previous owner swapped in 3/4 ton axles and springs. 8-lug Dana 60 in the rear and a 8-lug dana 44 up front. It has the NP 203 transfer case which is full time. Wish I had a NP205 for it.

It has a 7'6" Western Pro Plow with unimount. The plow is in excellent shape. Plow is 3 years old, but truck wasn't licensed or used last year, so plow only has 2 seasons of light use.

Found a bunch of receipts in the glovebox for new balljoints, ujoints, etc.. Tires are 33" BFG all terains with about 80% tread. Engine is fresh. Plus got a grille guard and canopy thrown in.
I paid $3500 for the truck, only downside is the truck is a bit rusty. But I can live with that for the price. I figure it should work pretty well with such a short wheelbase. Let it SNOW!! :)
