    I would hire you for plumbing work based solely on the name of your business, but the mileage charge would probably be pretty steep! Very clever and the Ambulance is icing on the cake!

    Does this count?

    1966 Scout 800 with a 1988 7.3 N/A ZF5 Dana 300 and 1977 Scout II Dana 44’s

    still not legally road worthy but I do get to drive it around at least.

    It’s on the list. Hopefully in two weeks it will get new glass and exhaust. Open manifolds are cool and all but I like to keep a low profile.

    Hey everyone, I've been working on my 1984 F250 with the 6.9 IDI that I inherited from my great-grandfather who had bought it new from the dealership back in the day. I stumbled across this forum and I love how active it is so I had to make an account. Anyways figured I'd show you guys my truck and I look forward to learning as much as I can about these beasts!
