Out with the old,..

In with the new 


 
Updated 12 years, 2004 to 2016. No rust holes beg enough for a cat to get through on the newer truck. No rust at all as a matter of fact.
The ac works! It is a lariat so the ac even cools my bum! A handy feature after sweating all day!

Good looking truck.  Are you putting a plow on it or keeping the old one to plow with?

Nice upgrade. smiley_thumbsup
Might want to keep the old one for snow plowing, don't need AC on a plow truck. (Just a beater with a heater). ;D  
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

I sold the F250 and my F150. This truck needs to fill the shoes of two trucks. This will be the sawmill truck and the going on vacation with the snowmobiles truck. It is a very tight fit to get all the stuff for sawing in a short box. I got one of these

So far I like it, those drawers hold a lot of stuff. Have a hard top on the box so blades and long tools are undercover.
Built a rack on the mill to hold my extra fuel tank. 
I use a pop up tent instead of an umbrella so I strap that on the mill.
Only three mobile jobs with it so far. It is working just fine.

And NO PLOW. Too much maintenance. To hard on a truck  I'll use my Kubota.
