    That crome grille on the truck isn't original right? Did you install it or did the previous owner do it. That truck looks like a great work horse... maybe you could update the headlamps.

    The original owner added the chrome grill...it just had a standard grill originally since its an XL.

    The truck is a beast, it's perfect for towing a skidsteer around. I still haven't gotten used to the power, Last week I was in the passing lane towing a skidsteer going with the flow of traffic, I looked down and was doing 90mph. It's sneaky fast.

    I buy and sell skid steers on the side (works hand in hand with the main business). I have only put about 50 hours on cases, overall I think they're a really heavy duty machine and second favorite to Cat for me. This particular one has hand controls - If I only operated one type of machine, then they would be great. However going from operating one kind for a week or two then operating another type can makes things difficult.

    that is a NICE truck! Can't believe that's got 100,000 on it.

    I need to get my windows tinted in my Dodge work truck too. Just makes a huge difference on cab temps in the summer... On the other hand, I keep the windows down when it's hot out, then roll them back up when I travel and crank the a/c. Wow, I talked myself out of window tinting fast huh? lol

    that tinting would be illegal here in NJ.

    I have 20% on the back, 35% on the sides, none on the windshield.

    Technically it's illegal in Ohio. You can have any tint on the rear window and rear side windows (On a 4 door car/truck) and 50% on front windows.

    However I've had this setup on my car for 3yrs and have never been hassled once, so I'm not too concerned.

    When I bought the truck with 98k miles on it, my friends thought it was brand new when they first saw it.
