Status Report

I don't know how interesting this poll could be, but just think of all the PSDs all around the US. None of them are modified the same, or are in tip-top shape. Some work, some play...Some race down a strip & some race to an emergency. We've got PSDs we've seen pulling a sled; & then PSDs that pull a camper. Then there are those that are in the shop, or in a million pieces in the garage. A few are fixed within hours...aaaaaaaaaaand others are fixed when the owners get ambition. & sadly...we've got the departed that made it to the Promise Land(or the Bone Yard as I call it). Let's just hear everyone's rigs current status: vote for whatever choice fits your criteria, & then let's hear what it's up to right this moment! Tell a little story.

I have mine to pull a camper 2-3 times a year and to go to home depot.

It's only modded to get to home depot faster. That and everything I drive can't be stock for some reason...
