    I had a few days before the official start of maintenance to play with my rig. So I welded in a new floor because the old was destroyed and helped a friend solid axle swap his 89 4runner.

    But play time quickly came to an end, I started my first cuts today. Monday is my commercial day so I ran through and cut what needed to be done. Everything is still a little slow, so the ones I did cut, I did pretty quick and only some spots.

    I got a backrack for my truck too, had to fab it a little because it was from a different truck, and had to make it work with my low profile box. Turned out well though, realized my drop hitch is a bit too low as well. But once I lift my truck a little it will work.

    The floor was destroyed, and the new trailer has been perfect for this.

    I noticed your Ford still has the Firestone Steeltex tires it would have had as OE equipment. They haven't made those tires in a few years. lol.

    Thanks! It a 2012, so yes it's a 4th right? I dont know if there was a another generation after the 5.9, like from 07 on. It's just levelled right now, really don't like the plow set up so it might be traded in soon.

    Well it still has 55k miles, so I dont know if they're original I have another brand new set of those tires too, I might sell them for 33s though.

    They haven't made those tires since 2004 or 2005 IIRC. They could be originals, but I doubt it by the mileage. We had a Silverado 2500HD back in 02/03 that had them from the factory. They only lasted about 38k before needing replacement.

    Got a new tow behind sprayer for weed control, works pretty good.

    And a look at one of the newer properties, it took a whole 8 hour day with 2 guys to weed and edge some of the trees and gardens. And they want mulch, 80-100 yards. Its a big job and we have 4 more just like it! :walking:
