Wife cannot handle the Eaton Fuller, drives her insane as to the "School Bus" F250 I have so this Behemoth is well out of the question!!
Spent two years, roughly 6-7 months of steady work between finances catch ups to put the old Cat back together with repairs to Transmission and new clutch, then as had in-between times on Cab and Sleeper component repairs, moved to Body work and all Brakes with Suspension. Most of the Air Chamber Cans were junk, Slack Adjusters were an Automatic Slack take-up type but Well Past OVERDue for replacements.
Financially I am in it for around $50,000, cannot buy a Ton or Ton and Half for Double That and have a decent tow machine.
