Looking at how nice your " work truck " is , if you had that truck up here in the rusty north east  you would get a nice $$$ for that truck .

 

 

That's a style truck my wife would want to have now ,   we  bought a 1985 F150  2wd long bed the year we got married , our first new vehicle together

We used one ton versions where I worked years ago. They had 400 v8's in them. One tons had a much better ride than any of my cars. Some of them ran on propane.

I had an '85 F-150 years ago.  I wish I still had it.  It had a 302 but was a 2 WD but it just kept going and going.  It also had dual tanks.  

 

One summer my son was working with me and on the way home he notice the gas gauge was about on empty.  He asked if I was going to stop for gas and I told him no but as we passed the next exit the tank would fill back up.  As we passed the exit It told him to pay attention to the exit and as we passed I flipped the switch.  He looked back at me and then saw the gauge going to full.  He was amazed and asked how did you do that Dad?  When we got home he went running in and told the wife what had happened. She just smiled and said "Your Dad had dual tanks, he switched from one tank to the other."  To this day he hasn't lived it down.  :smilewink:
