Re: new truck

I'll agree with that. Anything up to 87 is pretty easy to work on. Reliability may be a bit of an issue with something that old but if you check it out before you buy it shouldn't be a problem.

F350! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] All the cool parts he'll ever want are allready on the truck. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] However you will have to do some heavy fabrication to the frame to get it to a decent wheeling length.
