    I traded for this truck Friday and had to see how it would do with a small load of wood. My new splitter and my old sassey massey is in there too. DSC01242.JPG

    Put some sides on it and really load it down. Those are great old trucks.

    Is that thing a 3/4 ton? You will never break it! They are built like tanks.
    Great looking setup. I am coveting your tractor. Already have that truck and splitter!

    ya 3/4 ton 7.3 idi. I like the tractor pretty good my self it sure saves a lot of work.
    I try not to have to back up with the splitter hooked up but it is a pain when I have to.

    Truck has 1/2 of a load. That's a "work truck" :)
    I also vote "Side boards time"
    Nice set up.
