    Yearling
    95 Ford F800
    5.9 Cummins
    Allison AT545 Automatic
    12' dump bed


    It pretty much drives like a pickup, it's under CDL and it's nice to be able to haul and dump sand for the arena, mulch, dirt, gravel. We pull the horses with it and use it for jobs. Really we use it for everything, pulling the excavator and tractor to jobs, haulin hay and lumber.

    Extras...Put low-pro tires on it, stereo system, customized the bed to hold shovels and rakes, put a new toolbox on the passenger side. No motor work. It's not fast but it's not a racehorse, it's a workhorse.

    By the end of the summer I plan to black out the windows, re-paint the bed and front bumper, and maybe some aluminum wheels

    My husband does most of all his own work. If he gets stuck somewhere for a few days, he will tear something apart and rebuild it. Just last weekend he build a gear shifter extention cover out of stainless saftey rail. Especially if he is on the west coast they have some of the best chrome shops, he likes spending time out there. And if he is home for a week or so him and his engineer/welder friend look like a bunch of tweekers custom building all kinds of stuff, light bars, fender brackets...whatever...lol. We have been searching wrecking yards for that old school pin tufted leather interior most of them have been snagged or are destroyed, so will have to get that custom made. We have been pricing stacks too, I like how they out of the bottom of Camo n' Spurs truck...that's cool.
    Body work and paint is going to be a biggie, he still can't decide on his paint scheme, every week it changes!

    People think its crazy that he dumps that much time and money into a truck. But I figure if it makes him happy, he enjoys it and he takes care of it...who cares. He is the one who has to live in it he might as well like it!
