Congrats on getting it to drive decent!! If you are a private truck hauling your own stuff DOT usually doesn't get involved unless they get an "invitation". Either way, if you are hauling whatever and some of it falls off...... Well, you know what I mean. Just use common sense and you should be fine!

Repairing your truck is what I do. I priced new and newer used and could not believe what folks want and no telling what's wrong with their trucks. Good to see you here.

There's a lot of farmers and ranchers around me who wouldn't be caught dead in something older than 10 years old..
Personally, I have more important places for an investment this size!
Don't get me wrong, SOMEONE needs to buy them new!
Plus, my trucks, or my tractors can do the same work as new shiny stuff.. and it's PAID FOR!
I'll admit, the newer tractors with GPS guidance, mapping, can do a lot.. 'when they work right'..
I sure don't need a machine I can't fix on Saturday afternoon, because the shop is closed at noon! I have enough tools to do just about any procedure 'on-farm'.
Kind of a pride thing too.. being able to drive pretty dang straight in the field without a guidance system!

I know a lot of farmers/ranchers that won't drive anything but the current model year for a daily driver. Then they still throw a still wet newborn calf in the back seat. Strange crowd those farmers. I'm with you on running the old iron, have you seen the wiring harness on a new tractor!?

Yep.. quite the smorgasbord for mice! Geez, it's not just tractors. Neighbor is having problems with his new 4 wheeler.. (yellow brand) What a nightmare of wires stuffed in there.
LOL.. my 1972 Polaris SS Colt 295 is STILL running.
I think there is 4 wires total.. (besides the 2 spark plug wires) on the whole machine.. and 1 of those are lighting circuit.
Sure, I need to see the chiropractor after a few hours riding it.. and smell like the bottom of a gas tank.. and 45 mph is top speed..

You wouldn't believe what all my wife has hauled around in the trunk of her car, sheep, calves , colts and a number of other critters.

Here is a pic of a not so "baby doll" sheep Ram "Miniature sheep breed"going to get sheered at a neighbors place who knows how to do it last year in the trunk of her 03 VW Jetta TDI, as you can see he was quite content back there, it has hauled all of the above critters alone.
