I just bought a 77' F-250 4x4 over Thanksgiving weekend to use as a salt truck. I was not putting the spreader on my 06'. This truck is pretty tight for cylinder steering. I got lucky & it has spent it's life on a farm so it has been in a barn most of the time. I just have a few bugs to work out but I did use it last wek on that little snow we got and she did perfect so I hope it will be profitable.
