This is the money maker.


This is the noise maker.


And this is the VFD response and comfortable road trip maker.

The grill guard is a Ranch Hand. It is solid built and bolts to the frame under the front end. The truck is really a 2010 F-150. I pulled the grill out and put the Raptor grill in it a couple years ago. It is not lifted. It has the factory towing package and rides a little high without the trailer.

I see quite a lot of really old cars here; not so many pickups and such, but there are a few around.
