My New Towpiggy 2.0

Post by BadAssEddie » Wed Jan 25, 2017 10:34 am

My Ford has never been 100% reliable and I have had to replace many things along the way since I have owned it. I expect that from a 20+ year old truck that was literally in a barn when I bought it. It never broke down with my trailer hooked up and took me all over in the five border states and beyond. So, it was a good truck to me and I will miss it :crybaby2: .
But, within the last 4 months I have had more issues keeping it on the road with my decreasing free time. I broke down and bought a new truck last weekend, so I could spend more time in the garage on projects instead of maintenance. Since I am a po'man, I will be selling at least the D350, F250, and maybe the Bronco and trailer. I want a fancy new gooseneck for a fancy new truck and a streetable rig to wheel Potts and drive to church on Sunday :flipoff2:

Dealer is installing cab lights and bedliner this week as part of the deal.
About the only thing I am interested in doing to it within the 7 year warranty period is 35's. But we all know how that goes :cool:

Pretty sure that happened a long time ago, like when you got a yeti tumbler to match your yeti cooler. :lol2:

I like the truck! Pulled one of those out of being stuck to the axles in mud with my old 92 wrangler.

Thanks! I don't think I will be horsing around in the mud. I didn't even do that in my old one haha.

4WP was having a tire sale, so I picked up some 35x12.50R18 KO2s. 37s would have been ideal, but that is more money and work than I want to do for looks at the moment.
