    LoL, I do the exact same. I was so used to just logging off duty from not having a real bunk in my pickup. I still have never made a mark on line 2, & I'll be in this ol' shaker 2 years in Dec. Just log off duty, even though I have a legal bunk now. Never heard a peep from the law about..

    Actually I took out my safety restraint because it annoyed me. So my bunk isn't legal..

    LoL, bad As`s` :D maybe one day, but I take the compliment.. If I can ever afford to paint her then it'd look pretty slick..

    Hydrovac, is that class b work.? Sounds good though, oil patch work will keep ya busy from what I hear..

    Yep, woman is still keeping me rollin', but not from the front seat since about March of last year. She's been sickly & the doc's haven't figured it out yet. They just took another lymph node biopsy on the 16th. Maybe with some luck they'll give an answer this go around..

    She was cut by the 2nd owner to 174" to be a shanty shaker. The original wheelbase according to the door sticker is 210", which is where I had it taken back out to..

    That's really neat! Good ol Cat truck..

    Thank you.. Me too, she's been sick almost a year now. It's been kinda weird. Went from having me, my girl, & our 75lb America bulldog all packed in the truck, to just me. Leaving the pooch home with her to keep her company, & helps her sleep better at night. But hey, whatcha gonna do.? Happy wife happy life so they say... :rolleyes::D

    What's the benefit of running a single axle truck? Seems like it would limit you. At least running a 1 ton the fuel bill is cheaper.
