After unloading 1 1/2 tons of barnlot waste into mom's 4,000 sq. ft. garden. A hoist would sure be nice! Got my little bro off his bum long enough to help though LOL.

I gave $2,000 for it. Here it is loaded (room for another bob-cat scoop, this was three it could hold 4 or 5 but I had a toolbox on the left side that I did not want to bury). Started to level the springs on the right side, but there are 4 overload springs it didn't come close to. This is what the truck was built to do- haul heavy (1.5 tons on deck here, not alot in the scheme of things, it should be good for at least 4,000 lbs).

No, not going to LOL. I still think they make the white truck look better though, because it doesn't have the chrome trim around the grille and headlights. Similar trucks with chrome trim look fine w/o the covers :p

Thats a weird looking intake. Is it full fuel injection or is it fords ''variable venturi''(throttle body) or something like that.

Hey, Frankenscag's moving up in the world! Congratulations on the new truck. I think those 1-ton trucks are great-very versatile. Good luck,

Yep. It's been good about everything but gas. about 7.6 mpg! That's about 2/3 with trailer, 1/3 w/o, and all of it in town. From what I hear, it could be worse in a 460 though. I am gonna try to tweak a bit more out of it if I can. Tonight I put on a single 3" pipe from the catalytic converter straight back 4' then with a turn-down. Sounds better and seems to have a slight improvement in power up hill with trailer (accelerates better uphill). Sounds almost similar to a Flowmaster, but a little louder and not quite as deep and "rumbly". It has a dual inlet, single outlet catalytic converter, thus the single 3" pipe.

nah she's 6x4. Only back 4 wheels drive. I probably will not do plowing this winter because still in school. The F250 I sold to a kid Friday. His first truck just got his license that day. Hated to see it go :cry: it was a good looker.

$1600 for the white one. It needed much repairing so I thought if a person put $1000 into it it would be worth $2600.

Don't think this truck will see a plow.

Thanks John. The Pro is doing well. Need a new skid, but it stripes well still. I love the eXmark! Next year I really want a 60" Lazer though!!
