And I thought I was the resident cheapskate with my 27 year old truck, with my "new" truck being almost 14 years old now.


I'm with ya. My truck is 16 years old but still looks and functions as new. I have no desire to replace it.

Here are the pictures of the oldies. The truck is a truck in the truest sense of the word. Square cut gears in the transmission, no synchros, mechanical brakes. Driving it is an adventure.
The Jeep is a ton of fun. We spend a lot of time with it. It's a bit more refined than the truck but you still know when you drive it for a day.

I can't believe I hadn't seen those trucks before.
While the jeep is pretty cool that truck is absolutely AWESOME thumb thumb

Do you plow with the Jeep? That would be interesting!

It was my plow vehicle for years but it did have a top back then. It's been retired from plow duty for a number of years. I never put a top on it after the last restoration. We do occasionally take it out after a fresh snow fall.
I may have posted this before from a ride we took a few years ago.
