Thanks guys. I am going to a tractor show this weekend (local), so I am going to just park it with the show vehicles so I don't have to put the trailer somewhere LOL. I am excited to tow the trailer with it for the first time this weekend.

Very nice Casey. Glad you found what you wanted.
Is the bed scuffed up yet?
Oh, that's right... You've not had it long enough to put a tractor in there. :D

Ya, the inside of the bed is scuffed which is fine, it is a truck. I am going to look into a Line-X coating at some point.

Thanks for clarifying the liner coating in your truck, I liked what you had and the over the rail would be good because it wont trap water, plus the plastic is scuffed from previous owner and his tool box. Bad thing was the PO had drilled a hole on each side through the bed rail to bolt the toolbox down, but I am not too excited about that, the overall truck was clean everywhere else. It's tough to nit pick a used vehicle too much when it is as clean as it is and presents as well as it does. The pluses all outweighed the negatives by a high ratio.

Ok now for a couple of tips on American Pickers - grow some stubble , let the truck be a little dirty , dont wear new clothes etc. The drawl may come easy but wait for the reaction on the other side -aw heck you will do fine.... :bigrofl: :flamethrower:

No worries, I didn't understand half of what you mumbled in that post anyway lol. If it's any consolation, I bought my Ford at a Toyota dealership lol.
