Thanks fellas! I just picked it up a month ago and it was as is in the pictures. I have upgraded the turbo and would like to put 8 inch miters on it eventually. Both of my grandpas each had one.

Well, I am a drilling fluids engineer on an oil rig in North Dakota. I work 14 days on and get 14 off. I fly home to North Carolina on my days off.

Anyways, my family is into oil field trucking up here. They had worked a deal on hauling new frac tanks from St. Louis MO to our yard up here in ND. All highway and pavement. I bought the truck to use it on that, I was going to personally run it on my 14 days off from my regular job.

And wouldn't you know it, before the deal was finalized someone came in and undercut us. Story of trucking, right?

I can't afford to keep it and not work it.

Sounds normal to me. Sucks! Sorry you gotta sell it. :(

Let me guess, ATS was involved................. Talked to some that ran into that with the wind turbine crap.
