    Got me another "toy" (err.. tool LOL)...

    One owner 1979 Dodge W150 club cab long bed 4x4, tilt steering, 50/50 split bench, baby buggy jumper seats in the back (cute little things LOL), blue/white 2 ton, all blue interior (carpet, dash everything, even blue plaid seat) and has wood grain trim... put the tailgate on right after the picture LOL... has original owners manual in glove box looks like new. 93k miles on the odometer (thinking its 193k as it has a few seeping gaskets but its been sitting a while that maybe the problem)... good ole truck.

    360 2 bbl
    Torqflite 727 automatic
    New Products 203 full time transfer case
    31" tires (coming off for 33's+ hopefully)

    system (why i wanted a club cab plus they look cool :D )
    lift & tires (probably only a few inch lift and 33's or something).

    may switch my plow to this truck and use the M880 1 ton for a trail thrasher... pretty much all its good for LOL.. it could be driven but not as nice to drive.





    :D :D :cool2: :waving:

    That would be a nice truck to restore. I really like those older Dodges like that--used to have a '75 and a '78. Believe they had slant-6's in them though.

    Thanks for the nice words Smalltimer1. I take back everything I said about you :D

    Except that the 6.0 is still a 3rd rate diesel :D :D :D j/k... its alright... They sound good straight piped and can do great things with a nice chip.. I hear the Diablo is a great chip for a six-oh.... how's the ol Ford doin for ya anyway?

    I've got a line on a set of 4 37" Super Swampers that could fit on the rims already on the truck.. have to see if they'll fit with the 3" body lift I have for it.. it'd be tight but if it can do it I'll make sure they get on there! Needs some pipes with glasspacks. I'm swappin for a super sweet Kenwood Excelon head unit... then the search goes on for amp & subs... hehehehe....

    Maybe selling biz and some of the equipment to a friend and work for him.. He already has a biz larger than mine so this would be a nice addition for him. I'm gettin tired of the headaches and dealin with everything and everyone.... so i'm liquidating everything I don't need and he doesn't want to buy.

    Frankenscag DO NOT SELL YOUR BIZ!! You got to be kidding me. I am about your age. I get fed up with the BS all the time. Some weeks i work 8 hours. Some weeks i work 20. But when ever i am working i am making 50 bucks an hour minimum. Take the good with the bad for a few years and then it will be easy rolling.
