Thanks, all the hard work paid off. It's put away for winter now. Put about 3500 miles on it this summer/fall(half of those seriously loaded) and only had to replace the still original blower motor after it got cold out. Only used a quart of oil too. My only disappointment is not getting a pic of a T4 on it.

Glad the ground is frozen. Haven't fished since last winter. Making up for that though, already got 5 days on the ice, and 2 more coming this weekend. Rusty beater is back out and will be on the lake!

What is all that fill for, SD? And do all the rocks in the stuff you got make it unusable? That would be a real PITA after all that work.

dlb, We are raising and leveling areas for future building sites and for relocating 2 of my 3 campers deeper in the woods. They are in the way of future progress, and I would like them back in the woods. This old beast of a truck has paid off many times over and is ready for more.

Anyone watching the metoer shower tonight? Saw 5 of my top 10 including best ever all in one shot tonight, while in the car even.

Oh, the rocks. They can make trenching utilities difficult. As luck would have it, right after I built the separator the county had a bunch of leftover screened sand for sale in a handy pile.
