Nice truck, great parents!

How old is your kid? Old enough to drive?

What a Mom and Dad! Nice Truck and a manual transmission is the way to go, did you kid help pick it out or was it a surprise.

So what has happened with this beauty?

Did your kid learn to drive manual?

They will appreciate an automatic when they first get behind one.

My first 'Apache' 3 on the tree would sometimes lock up the linkage, Major PIA!!  :(

This is a gorgeous truck. I had owned an identical truck when I was working for a construction company. Now that  I own my personal construction company, I am looking for new trucks to buy to move the construction materials. So I've recently found the best factoring companies for trucking. I am looking to use their services, so guys, if someone is also interested in these services. I can leave you a review after I get in touch with the guys from the factoring company. Just let me know if I should do that.
