    Thanks again! I'm very happy with it. Good for you not taking that bait. Highroad for sure. Real nice guy, he was relating his saga to me, and at one point, the truth came out - - "my wife wants to get rid of it, I've had a lot of calls locally, but I just wasn't sure I wanted to let it go." At that point I said I'd take it, and handed him the cash. I made my friend who owns an 86 K20 come with, and I could see him drooling. . . haha.

    Thanks Stephen! And thanks Cory, I know you like our little auto shop. It gets so much use, it's like a community resource 8) And Jim, dude, you rock, thanks for the tip. It's totally a TH400.

    Thanks George, yeah, I'm going to set it up as a chip truck. It's an automatic transmission, just a three speed. Also going to get the plow frame finished and get all that rolling. Chippy is going to look good hooked to it I think :D

    I know a little Jim, but not enough. I thought it would be a TH400 too. Where the 400's 3 speeds? I'll check tomorrow. Tiny little 15 gallon tanks on it. Had to fill up three times to get her home! hahaha Thanks man. I'm really happy with it. . . No weird vibrations, smooth and tight steering, new breaks and rubber on the back. . .

    My months long search has ended. 1980 K30 1 Ton 4x4 dually (same year I was born!). 80K on the chassis, totally rust free, rebuilt plane jane 350 with a TH400 (thanks Jim!) three speed. Ran great all the way home. I'd made up my mind that I was just going to jump in it and pretend like I was driving it home new from the dealership. haha. 330 miles of highway and surface streets right off the bat. I think we'll be happy together 8) Old Golf Course truck that the guy bought and basically restored. . . OEM panels from Arizona, new paint. Frame and box were blasted and bedlinered. . . I'm psyched. Also a nice 8' Western plow with all the hookups. Guy never got all the way around to mounting it.

    Sorry to hear that! Hope you feel better. Rest is the ticket. Jim, if you ever get a chance, check out Jim Cirillo's "Tales of the Stakeout Squad". It's just crazy what those guys used to do. . .

    Wow Stephen, just wow. . . Amazing place you live man. Sounds like lots of awesome cutting, dropping huge tops into the fog. . . Never been there, but I sure do like it. 8) Cheers.

    The only way to do this is by educating the consumer/customer. If they can get a $800 removal done for $200, why wouldn't they? Building professionalism in the field, and getting to a point where the customers demand that level of care and professionalism is the only way to get there. . . I think things are moving that way. I really do. Course I've only been watching for a little while. . . Don't know what it was like 20 or 30 years ago. . . Wild west I imagine.

    Thanks Stephen! There was an occasional wind off the lake side that was pretty cold. Not terrible, just. . . noticeable. Slings were a life saver (wrist saver anyways) for sure. That sounds like a lot of $$ for a conference Jim. I hope she brings home some useful information. Cheers

    Air leak Rich? What smoked the 461? Just curious. 12 Degrees and work tomorrow. Going to piece out these two (well, one) birch and that sad little maple in the back. I'll try and catch some video, just cause. . .
