New Wheels!

I have my fingers in a lot of different pots, but my main source of income has been for the last 10 years, driving. Most of that time I've been pulling parts for Toyota (for those of you who follow American Trucker on Speed, The Santa Clause pulling steel is a good friend of mine, and trained by me). Anyhow Ive finally been able to step out of driving somebody else's junk and into driving my own!

I pick up my 'new' truck tomorrow Morning. Pretty excited!

or the clutch pedal is on the left side of the steering column like seen in the 4th photo, exactly where it should be.

Sorry to disappoint, it's nothing special as I'll be putting a driver in it, sometime over the summer and picking up another ride for myself.

525 Cummins ISX 10spd (although they did have a auto shift, but I HATE those!) 120 Gallon Tanks. Doesnt have every option, but close. Was originally a company truck for Navajo Express out of Denver, though the wick has been turned up a bit since they had it - was set at 400 when they had it (jake was disabled too, will never understand companies that do such things!)

Still have a few things to do to it before I can get to adding things I really want to - Chrome, Lights, Dual Pipes, etc etc etc

Photo's I took after getting it home ... put my radio and stuff in it. Realized the dam Radio bracket was gone .. UGH! Got one now though -

Had a couple odd's N end's to do on the truck. Some of the heater lines were getting soft, a couple that went to the Trans Cooler were starting to seep a bit ... So we changed ALL the lines on the truck, new clamps too.
Also put in a new Thermostat, and changed the valve Cover Gasket, it was starting to weep a bit too ... nothing that couldn't wait but ... while we were under there...

Didn't take much time for photo's ... did grab a couple though. We (me and my mechanic) found several (four or five) Zip Ties down in the head ... nothing major but ... WTF ... Lazy people!
