78 international. v8 diesel, 4 speed stick, 5 ton, 4x4.
I like this one.
LOL, Nice toy, but I highly doubt that truck could git much work done on my homestead.
Heck this Pickup has been my Git er Done Pickup for years.
LOL That pic was AFTER we lowered it so we could use it! It actually got used a lot.
I am waiting to see the hunting dogs pictures....
Looks like the 78 International would need that fuel tank, but cool truck.
Fire truck for fighting spot brush fires? Witjh the diesel I'd have it, but I'd ditch the tank in the bed. Is it yours?
I'd like to be able to afford to buy and rebuild one of the old Dodge Powerwagons from the 40's and 50's. Our electrical coop used those things until they could'nt get parts. They were tough trucks for the rougher terrain we used to have.
This is a real truck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,got no use for a Ford but in this case I will make an exception...................http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford...72QQihZ008QQcategoryZ6221QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
LOL just a Ford they didnt even put the big engine in it!
Before we dropped it it was about a foot and half higher and we used it to build some 8 foot tall ostrich fence LOL It was a great way to put in those 10 foot long fence posts!
Ive seen a few brush trucks seel cheap at state auction been thinking how nice it would be to have one . Do think the one pictured above is a but over the top for my needs a 1 or 1&1/2 ton would be fine
Pyro get all the truck you can You will never have to much.......unless it comes to the cost of plates!
Take it from a guy that used to haul two cords of hardwood on a F-250 more is better! Ive never regreted myF-350 except when wishing for a 450 or 550!
I would love to have that duece and a half, or a 5 ton. That would do alot of work around our place... I have a heavy 3/4 ton Ford now that keeps burning up the electrical system, so it's getting parted out and what ever is left is head to the scrap yard... It's ashame the dang thing ran like a charm and would haul a ton and not even think about it... The only problem was the fuel mileage, it was between 9 - 11 mpg empty or loaded...
no, its not mine. its on ebay, but its close to my home. I want a medium duty 4x4 flatbed. When my pickup gets worn out that is what Im looking to buy.
The reason I posted this is because I like heavy duty trucks. I have broken a lot of leaf springs, and axels over the years on pick up truck doing farm work. There are many times when a pickup just cant handle the job.
We call them brushbreakers around here.
Climbed all over the Onset and Wareham ones when I was younger. They drive up to the big pines some a couple foot in diameter and push them right over in our soft sandy soil. A bit more stout than the one in the top post. They definitely git er done.
So how much are plates in ILL. for the F-350???Here in Ohio and my County,my 3500 Dodge DRW runs about $110 a year.But the single axle w350 runs about $60................go figure......Farm tags here are by weight so it would run about the same for those same trucks.Gettin close to game time gotta fly.............................
