I like the write up. Only coming here to disagree with this one sentence haha. Duratracs are one of the best all around tires out there.
That being said, why they put them on a truck in Texas I don't understand. Down there they are pretty useless haha.

Either way that seems like a good deal for $45k
Boats are fun! Glad you got to enjoy needed family time.
Excited to see this thing finally done. A guy on my old 4x4 forum in BC back in the day SAS'd one of these on 40's and his build thread was the same level of detail as yours. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Checking in from Revscene.

Logging is one thing I really want to do (logging truck driver) before I don't have time to drive truck...
Taking a full size on a jeep/toy trail is asking for a fun time. You will dent some stuff... People do it, but don't expect to come out unscathed.
It's the equivalent of taking a toy/jeep on a quad trail
Just read the entire thread. Love the truck and you have definitely done an excellent job with it! I used to have a 2nd gen with the nv5600 but it was an utter piece of ****. You name it, it probably broke on that truck. And all it did was live on the freeway from Port Moody to Abbotsford while...
