Trucks/Tow rigs

Nothing special here, just my old beat up 1984 F-350 with 6.9 diesel and Banks turbo kit.
It has done incredible work and towed everything I've asked it to.

That Caddy Limo was no lightweight either!! I think it was about 7200 LBS.

It's somewhere in this picture. Don't know the miles, but it pulled the car over the mountains from VA to KY and back no problem. (Inaugural Bash) 460 powered of course.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

I was going to say Richter wins right up until Awesomerides last picture. Man that would be nice.

He could probably do circles around me going up hills though. LOL! The 185hp non turbo 3208 Cat isn't a joy until i get to Southeastern PA where it is flat. Then we cruise nicely into MD and VA.

We got a little spot cleared right in the middle. The trees keep out prying eyes, and complaining neighbors. Although some of my neighbors could hang with Fred Sanford. That's why we bought the place.

Nice enclosed trailer too!!...and the same for ricter69!!

I just picked up this 28 ft Pace American a few weeks ago.
It looks like hell..the paint is sun baked from living in the desert, but its mechanically sound!!

Its got a 5500W generator, roof mounted AC unit, 3500lb in the floor winch, inside & outsiide lighting and new brakes.
Need a new spare tire, as you can see its bald!!

97 F-250 Powerstroke 2wd with a little ol' school Lightning flair. It has Stg. 1 Injectors, Adrenaline HPOP, Tony Wildman Chip and load leveling bags in the rear to compensate where I lowered it.






It tows my 28' tag trailer with ease,......

Cause you have a Cummins??? If I could afford a real truck instead of these little 1/2 tons it would be Cummins powered. NO haterade here.
