    Well, newer. I've been working on this project for longer than I anticipated, but I believe it will be worth the wait.
    I've got plans to upsize my tractor next year and this should pull it.

    Thanks! I'll probably wait till spring to swap engines since my shop is unheated, but the 454 runs great anyway. I just wanted an 8.1.

    You go man - and don't spend all that money in one place.

    Lol, not to worry. The truck needs money spent in every place.

    I see that truck comes with the rare tree in the bed option. Perfect for a shade tree mechanic such as i!

    Looks great so far. That is dedication there, three years into it.
