I did post up my sweet buick roadmaster earlier in this thread but I ended up buying this instead:




Its a 95 ford one ton five speed manual 7.3 liter turbo diesel. Bought it for $3500, and it has 327,000 miles on the ticker. Runs like new, pulled my jeep up to drummond this year and pulled my buddy's back after his tranny died. Im so glad I held out for a diesel manual truck, it pulls so nice. As you can see from the pics I have yet to buy a trailer...

There are so many cool tow rigs and toys on this thread that we all need to go on a road trip and form a giant bogger convoy :)

They are the same truck, the first pic was when it was new (to me). The second is after I removed all the badges, stickers and other garbage. I added the cab lights this summer. They are Smoked LED lights from Recon, in the newer '07-09' style.
