I replaced the rear tail light today. all the lights work. hi/low left and right and brakes. the reverse light is not working currently.

It has had the bed chopped down from a longer one at some point in its life.

 That said it has a tighter turning radius then any modern ton truck and can sneak around pretty well. and would easily fit on most trailers.Hint hemlockking.... its a great old truck and gets lots of comments., but 2wd has def helped me want to be rid of it. i need 4wd for living on these hillsides

I have pulled a lot of trees and made a lot of trips to the dump, and or picked up sand.  even my wife says the old dump truck has earned its keep.  tax and tags about 70 bucks a year.

I too wish it was closer.  Always paying to have stone hauled in-I could go get myself.  Crushed rock out of a quarry is cheap, trucking surcharges are not.

Doc, I can relate;  My next "ask" involves just such a piece of equipment, with similar initial resistance expected.
Far as I can tell, it's 6 of one, half a dozen of the other...
