Got me a new tow rig.

Well, not new - but new to me. Very Happy 1999 F250 4x4 crew cab. West coast truck (Oregon, BC and then Alberta), unreal shape underneath. No rust. Trusty old 7.3L with 285,000 miles and 40,000 on a rebuilt tranny. I have all the receipts from new  - even the window sticker. Wink  It runs like a top. It needs a few things and some tires but over all its in great shape and I was tickled to get it. I sold my 92 F350 4x4 to buy it  - that was a shock to the system LOL....Now I have to get a plow for this one as winter is coming fast and I don't want to be a snow blower jockey unless I absolutely have to. What a difference a bath and losing the running boards made. she's getting undercoated ASAP....The wife was on board surprisingly....She has her eye on a bigger camper in the near future. Suspect I can't wait to start on the upgrades. I have 3 more 7.3's in the garage for spare parts too.
