Missouri Mule Posted March 4, 2022 Share Posted March 4, 2022 Well. As some of you may or may not know my mother passed away in December. I have been busy all winter trying to go through her belongings and work towards selling her place. In my spare time I feed cows. In my other remaining time I have been working on my latest little project. I like binder tractors and 5.9 cummins trucks. So I bought me a 97 12 valve dodge with a 5 speed. 180k. Been around this truck since it was a couple years old. My now BIL and I used to "borrow" this truck from his dad in high school while he was working out of town. we put most of them miles on it driving around aimlessly. Anyway I suppose it keeps me busy and keeps my mind off of other things so I bought it. Needs alot of work. Head gasket, heater core, brakes, engine front cover gasket, balancer, dash, radio, just to name a few things. When I'm all done I'll still have a crusty old dodge but I like them. Plans are to jerk the bed off and install flat bed. Paint the cab forward and fix rusty rockers and cab corners. I wanted a decent diesel truck to pull trailers around the farms that I can leave my nicer diesel in the shed. I keep denting or scratching up my better truck and sure cant afford a new one. My smooth looking helper posing for a picture. He could fit back in behind that dash to help me get that wretched heater box out. Anyway it's nothing special to most probably but I thought I'd share where I've been lately. 10 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
