FYI everything I have read about Ohio is they use just as much salt, didn't pay attention to your location. There are a few guys from the Early 5 board down there and say it is every bit as bad as MI.

Still a cool truck.

I'm just going by what the next door neighbor has to say. A good dumping of 6" maybe once a year but nothing all that bad and he said when they salt people can drive down the road and not leave a salt cloub behind them like it is up north

Drew,
There are plenty of $800 & less beaters for sale on here for you to leave that parked over the winter.

I can only imagine what will happen if that sees road salt.

And some people have called it a big hunk of crap

My dad has my old turbo spirit that has a blown trans, thanks to my sister so I might just swing up to MI and pick it up and put the trans back in it for the winter. My wife will go a little ape shit if I have another vehicle around though

Rightfully so. Tell ya what drew. Bring the chief up here. I will store it for free. Just leave me the keys. Promise it won't see saltsnow, mud, branches, rain perhaps, but no salt.


Drew, you are aware the beast you refered to with pics isn't the riverbeast right? Both super sharp rigs. just looking for clarification/

Yeah, that's David Allan's beast from DAR at silver lake. Wheeled with him once back when I had the White ZJ. . . cool dude!

The "River Beast" is where I'm getting my lift parts from. Tadsal, TTfab makes the SOA plates and the shackle flip kit that was on the "river beast"

Pics of river beast.


It will flex like this!

I found this guy on the web at Yesteryear tractor. They haul these tractors all acorss the country and I worked out a deal with him. He picked it up at the PO house and dropped it off here at the Walmart which is 2 miles away for $1000

Drew - x 3 that they use salt in Cinti. A lot. Maybe not quite as much as MI, but close. DO NOT Put that on the road in winter. Dissolve the MR2 - not the FSJ.

This is the new winter rig. . . it's got double duty now. Tow/Winter rig. I'll only drive the chief if we get a foot of snow or something and I'm stuck. As for right now It's just sitting . . . I'm trying to find a reason to justify keeping it.

Drew, I'm from Cincinnati; the winters are brutal, no so much snow as freezing rain,most times you can ice skate on the sidewalks. Lots of salt, no sand mix like here though. Love the chief by the way, treat yourself to a good time and go to the WEBN fireworks. Just don't drive there.

Was wondering if I could also have a mod do a magic touch up to my thread

Thanks


Sad to say but happy at the same time, the chief will be moving to Michigan in the next couple of weeks
