Do you want the title changed?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

I decided not to vote. I could really go either way.
I always wanted a tractor but just kind of fell into the truck thing. at this point I dont see my self selling the truck and building a tractor. trucks are nice becasue you can start in lower classes and build up to the bigger ones while still being able to drive it on the street untile you get into the big classes.
once you start pulling a tractor thats pretty much all it is good for anymore, unless your just playing around in the out of the field classes.
but I think tractors are easier to work on, and a little more evenly matched between all the brands, as compaired to trucks.
if I had a pile of money laying around and wanted to go all the way at once I would build a tractor, but I dont see that ever happening, and I'm pretty happy with my truck so this is where I'll probably stay.
