It's not very pretty, but it appears not to leak.

Well. Agreed to buy this old thing today. Wasn't planning on buying a truck, but my coworker is getting rid of it and its a deal I can't pass up.

1993 F350, 4x4, 5spd, CCLB, 7.3 IDI, Banks Sidewinder Turbo, 116k on the clock.

Has rear cab controlled airbags, and a whole bunch of other goodies thrown in. Hopefully taking delivery in January, let the trailer shopping begin.

New trailer who dis?




18ft, dovetail. 5 foot ramps. Winch. Brakes on 1 axle. Its your standard cheap car hauler, but it was reasonably priced, and the best part was it was already being stored in my backyard. Title needs signing then its mine.

Built in 2015, new tires (date code 2016), maybe 4k miles on it total.

Wiring looks meh, needs a junction box, and maybe some more paint underneath.

Standard cheap car hauler?

"Cheap" and "car hauler" don't usually go together :(

Is this the new plan for Laguna? What will you tow with?

Hopefully should. Going to do a round of maintenance on it next year. Only has 117k on it though. So fingers crossed.

It's dope. Drives pretty nice, tows ok too. Overall got a tow setup for a really good price and should make this year a little less stressful.

Had my dream truck, a 1989 black toyota V6 come into AR the other day, my dreams were quickly shattered as the injector harness shattered in my hands with a tiny squeeze. Good luck with this one.

Are these the Fords with rear drum brakes that insta-lock until they're warmed up a little? If you want a decent shop that'll tackle big trucks, try Marsh Transmission in Tualatin, they do all our rear ends/transmission rebuilds if you don't feel like tackling that stuff.
