Oldest daughter turns 16 in October. She’s got her permit and done her hours of driving with an instructor. She’s driven several miles in the last few years helping me. Some on public roads but mainly on the ranch. She’s hauled numerous loads of hay and cattle navigating tight turns and gates so I’m sure that helped some. Anyhow I started huntin her an older 7.3 powerstroke or 5.9 Cummins. Just a plain Ol truck ya know. She wasn’t picky and actually would’ve settled for one in far worse condition than I was happy with. This kid is just to easy to please. My other two daughters sure ain’t. Anyhow I ran across a 2000 crew cab f250 4x4 7.3 powerstroke on Craigslist in Arkansas. We went and looked it over and brought it home. The thing actually handles pretty Daggum good! The entire truck is covered in bed liner. They even masked off places and did interior parts that show when the door is open. I think they covered about 99.4% of the original red paint. Truck has had two owners and the guy we bought it from has owned it 10yrs. He said it was part of his family but was moving and his wife wanted a pool instead of a shop to house his toy. I can’t imagine what he had invested in this ol truck. It leaks nothing. He said he didn’t like oil drips on his garage floor so he kept everything fixed. My daughter is plum tickled and has been driving it everyday getting used to it. I do think I’m gonna put her a back-up camera on it. The drop-hitch was made from a forklift tine. Jasper automatic trans, 12” bds lift and 37x13.50R Nitto extreme terrain mud grapplers on xd rockstar wheels. I would never go to the expense of building this truck but I sure don’t mind buying one cheap. Like I told my wife, if we don’t like it we can make money on this truck.

Is that the daughter in question, standing in front of the truck with the little girl? I can’t imagine her driving that behemoth! Good on you, I hope she enjoys and appreciates the truck to the fullest :)
