Congratulations on the ROTW amigo, very nice truck, and I love that paint job. Kudos to you on the 4x4 conversion. I've done one, and it's not easy. I was just in Pa, working at the Susquehanna power plant, did not see your truck on the road up there.
Keep on truck'n

I've seen this truck around before. Congrats on ROTW!
