Not bad, that's only about $7k more than a well equipt Ford Expedition and less than the Lincoln Navigator....LOL

Got a specialized boat hauler for the back of that thing?



I'd like to be able to take all of my boats with me when I go to the lake (any lake, that is).

a w900 has a few cup holders in it.the bunks are comfortable to say the least.at about 6 mpg,you could go broke towing your boat to the ramp and back.but you would never know its in back of you either!the walk in bunks are just the best thing since canned cheese!



hey scott,is that got the n14 or the red block cummings in it?if you need a hitch on it,give us a call,we install hitches,liftgates,van bodies,and stake bodies!

Jeff - It's got the Red Top Cummins N-14 that can be turned up to 525 hp - which it IS! Awsome truck!



So what if it gets only 6 mpg? When you figure that it can EASILY haul two dozen of more bass boats........



Rich - No Problem! We'll get Jeff to build one for you!

Gotta tell you guys a story.........



My friend, Lori, is going to be the Maid of Honor at a wedding this weekend. Last Saturday they had the Bachelorette Party......... They had dinner at a local Mexicna Restaurant and then were going on to "In Cahoots" - a local country/western dance hall......... Lori told the bride that she had arranged for transportation from the restaurant to the dance hall and back - everyone figured she ment a limo.........



You shoulda seen the faces on the ladies when I pulled up in this truck! Even better were the faces of all the "cowboys" in their Stetsons as we pulled up at the front door of "In Cahoots" and five VERY cute women piled out!!!



Made my day - and then some!

I think Scott should start in St Louis with that truck, head northeast, and pick up all of us and our boats and drive us to the rally next year. Let's see how many boats that thing can tow!!

Hey! I'm all for it! Now....... If only I can let the boss to let me borrow it....... (Hopefully, it won't be around by next spring though. Can't make any $$ selling trucks if they sit on the lot.)



You know what they say, Rob..... Small feet; BIG truck!



ZZ Top...... Hm-m-m-m...... Not a bad idea!



And, Yes, Michael, I can and do drive them! You bring your boy by our lot and I'll take him out in any truck he wants!



And, No, Barb, I haven't broken one yet!



me!

Hey guys, you can rent them big old trucks. that is what I do for a living, Kenworth and Volvo units rent for a day, week month or sevan years.



Only catch is you need a CDL to operate them, so Scott and I are likely about the only two in the membership to help you out there!!!!
