    A couple grand. It has 1000 bucks in rubber with full size spare, I got some extra new fenders worth a couple hundred. It has a sub and stereo worth a couple hundred too. Its runs okay needs a little tune up with that many k, but I'm just gonna wheel it.

    It's just me working with my employee now doing clean ups so we just use my 7.3, it's the primary truck for landscaping and maintenance. Both rigs will be running for maintenance though, more so the Ford, and cummins might be a day or two a week.

    Ya we started with a Chevy actually, in 2000 just a 3/4 ton gas with a straight blade arctic, then got a cummins, a hemi, another cummins and we've stuck with dodge because that's what my dad likes. When it came time for me to sell my tacoma and get a real truck, I needed something well rounded and reliable and a single cab so that's why I got the 7.3. I'm not a big Chevy guy and I didn't find many single cab 5.9 Cummins.
    So it's just worked out that way. I love 7.3s and that's where my love for Ford pretty much ends, I like cummins powered trucks they've been good to us. And my toyotas have never let me down, and no matter how much I try to kill them, they will outlast everyone's domestic vehicles 9 times out of 10.

    We have been so busy with fert aerating, spring clean ups and storm clean up that my head is spinning. But lots has been going on so lots of pictures.

    A friend an I bought a lowered golf, as a parts car him and we're going to get it running to sell. We got it running that night. 230k, got it for 700 bucks. *edit realized I already posted that*
    We're making a parking area for the trailers too, just need to get all the stone in.

    My big brother and best friend is also dedicating three months to his life to volunteering in Malawi, doing construction and training workers in his field of HVAC, pipefitting etc. I thought I'd share some of his pictures to show you what its like in Africa.

    The food is bad, and its hot. And it took weeks for equipment to show up so they were picking and digging 400 foot by 4 foot deep trenches for pipe by hand.

    A couple more of Malawi.

    And because my brother is big role model of mine I decided to give him a gift when he gets home. He loves motocross and dirtbikes. And we've always wheeled trucks and had projects together. So I got the Runner for us to mess around on when he gets back. But today my cousin and I built him a track for his bike. I don't have completed pictures as of yet. And I ended up rolling the PT30 onto its roof aha, it was a rental no harm done.

    Thats what we have for now, it needs to be touched up a lot but that was a good days work. The PT30 did really awesome, very strongly considering one for doing snow and small landscape work. I've never really operated a track machine before, I liked it alot. I got away from foot controls too and started using the pilots. So much easier on the body.

    Enjoy, feel free to ask questions and comment :)

    One last thing is a new account I picked up, I got the rest of the family members too, father and son and sister. Each house and property is equally as nice. This pond is my favorite though.
