    used it/them for the last time of the season!?.....maybe lol.i sure hope so.i wanna get outta here and hit the road.

    chip truck needs some dump bed work.the sides and rear section need to be replaced and log trucks e4od that iv been milking for all shes worth,is just barley hanging in there.for some reason it's pushing atf up out the dipstick tube in reverse.i kept her topped up when i was using it this year but i dunno.i think i might need to stick a fork in it lol.
    got a good (hopefully) ford reman sitting in the garage,that i got super cheap,ready to go in.
    these things can both wait until spring when i get back.i dunno.i might take chip truck up for it's bed work before leaving.
    both trucks far more earned their keep again for another year.you can't beat a commercially used idi truck with a stick.the poor suckers buying new trucks,shelling out all those thousands.someones gotta buy 'em though or else we wouldn't have any used ones to buy!:D


    get well soon,Gary.

    Ive been slowing working on getting my old engine out of the truck so i can drop in my new one. Motor mount bolts are kicking my ass, being 31 years old they fight back a little.
