1 These first photos were taken when I went to look at the truck in Richmond, Indiana. It had obviously been sitting for quite a while.
2 It was used as a logging truck to drag logs in the woods according to the owner. He saw it sitting in the woods and asked if they wanted to sell and they agreed on a price.
3 Had a LOT of mods done to it and very rough. I was looking for combat rims and took a chance that a few may be okay. It has the main body of the MU2 winch as well.
4 Motor was siezed and not original to the truck
5 Had a toolbox bolted in on the passenger side and drivers seat was just a plastic school chair.
6 Owner said it did run when he got it but had since got stuck. At least it looked like the hood was shut.
7 This rim should be okay.
8 You can see the comfortable seat there in the bed. No "Rich Corithian Leather"! LOL Does have a spare.
9 Lift boom was all welded in.
10 Hopefully another good rim.
11 Always interesting to see what people add to these trucks.
12 Guessing this one is junk.
13 Maybe good?
14 Tag is still there.
15 This tire looks to have been replaced right before they stopped using it.
16 Lots of welding to the frame and it has a lot of rust.
17 Got it home as I took a couple of my spares and changed them before loading. Glad I have a winch on the trailer as it made it easy to drag it on. Truck was stuck in gear but owner got it out just before we got there.
18 I did have it chained down pretty good. Dad went along with me and it took about 3 hrs of total time. I had a 3/4" 4 ft breaker bare and 1/2" cordless impact along with other tools. When we had it loaded the owner looked at me and said," I can tell this isn't your first rodeo". LOL It did go extremely well and quick.
23 Plan is to roll it off the trailer and push it in the shop to work on it. That and to see what is really there.
24 Highly optioned truck as it has the overhead fuel tank along with the deluxe barn roof with OROPS
