It's been a while since I've bought anything relatively cool, been mostly leapfrogging in trucks I'm selling keeping payments away while getting my business off the ground. Had a good year so I decided I'd buy myself something capable but without vinyl floors and seats with armstrong windows. Isn't the brand new truck I was hoping I'd be in, especially with the "pride" hit it took going from my last nice truck back into older stuff when starting my business, but it's damn nice and will last me a year or two until I can order exactly what I want.





2012 F-350 Lariat. CCLB 6.7 PSD. Already deleted and tuned with SCT, S&B CAI, Sinister EGR delete kit and 5" turbo-back. Has a BOSS RT3 truck side mount and harness for plow already as well as a B&W Gooseneck hitch. All stuff I do to my trucks anyways, so that was nice to find since that all adds up to about $5,000 by the time you're all said and done.

Owned it about 5 hours before transfer tank and boxes were installed. Also took about 5" off the exhaust because someone just shoved the tip on the full length pipe and it looked ridiculous. Towed a 36' gooseneck the following day lol. It'll probably see about 500 miles of towing this weekend as well, I'm excited to see how it does with 18,000#'s behind it. It moved 12,000 on Sunday like it wasn't there and saw just over 12mpg on the lie-o-meter.





Was owned by a farmer since new. Towed a gooseneck horse trailer and plowed his personal driveway. If you're not someone that constantly searches trucks like myself or [MENTION=19]Yaj Yak[/MENTION], you might be surprised to find out it is an absolute motherfucker to find a single rear wheel 1-ton long bed truck. They're hard to find new, even harder without being worked to death used. It took about a month of searching for one within 500 miles from my house, and then this one popped up at Advantage Chevy in Hodgkins, IL. Found it Friday, drove down Saturday AM and brought it home.


I'll get some better pictures soon, pretty much bought it, transferred boxes and stuff out of the truck I'd been driving and have been running around getting ready for a few big auctions since picking it up.

Windows tinted. 20% over all the windows. Fronts are a bit light for my liking still, but it's kinda nice to see out of plowing. With that being said... tracked down a two year old BOSS 9'2" V plow. Only thing I want to change is upgrade to the SL3 LED light pods. Truck's pretty much been working since I picked it up.

And one of the interior. I typically hate tan but the fact that the carpet and dash are comprised of different shades of brown and gray, it actually looks pretty decent.

Really? I wasn’t worried about the depth honestly, it was height for me lol. I thought standard 2 car was like 23’ or 24’ deep.
I didn't think it was that long.

Most garages at houses i looked at were 22' or less deep it seemed.

i also thought this is why most "crew cab" trucks are baby dick beds.

I raised the door for my last one, since this truck is on 35’s it clears by just over an inch lol. Could be on the depth, my garage is 24’ deep. Truck has about 8” extra front and rear
