    I was just wondering how old everyones truck is, and how long you keep it. Ours is a 1997, it is in really good shape as we don't put many miles on it. We have added many extras, and anytime I go thru DOT they say how nice it is. I thought maybe it would go this year, but with fuel prices and the economy so unstable I think she's here to stay another year!

    Here is a link to pics of my truck after some paint last winter.

    Ours is a 95 and just had the body redone over the winter. Ours is in great shape aswell and we dont put many miles on either, I think theres only 60,000 miles on it. I dont think we will get a new one for a while. We keep the truck washed up and lookin good and like nedly said when you go through DOT checks most of the time they just give us a quick glance and wave us on.l

    At home, used to run a '72 Autocar(up til 97) with a 255 Cummins in it. Second truck is an 89 Cornpicker 350 Cummins 9 speed, sold that to the company I work for now. The other truck I get to drive is the binder '88 tri axle ol Detroit in it, typical DD screams like mad.

    My neighbor had an old transtar, it had one rear axle and a drop axle, he built a short box for it. It was a nice truck, dont have any pics though.:(

    !991 international 4900, 466,10 speed with ultra low and lockers. It's not very fast or very powerful but I'm sure I can always get there. The other is a 79 RL600L Mack. It's not a heavy duty dog but it hauls what I need just fine. I'm usually hauling stumps and brush away, and fill and large rock back in. added a lift gate and no hassle dumping anymore. Dependable and great short haul or site truck. All it's good attributes almost make up for the cramped quarters and lack of headroom. P8300378 (Small).JPG
