Looks Great! Welcome to the fridge truck world. What a difference having proper tires makes. What's the engine/powertrain, and what are your plans? Thanks for posting.

Wow, great find!! I have been looking all over the yards, etc here in Michigan for a complete unit like that and have had 0 luck. They are all parted and that can add up to alot of $. So the search goes on.
