I dunno... A driver's power window switch for the passenger side window comes in handy sometimes...spotlight mounted on the hood, with direction control from inside the cab would be nice too.

I had a couple in the late 70s and early 80s

Most memorable was a Ford six cylinder half ton with a granny gear and positive traction.

I could put chains on that thing and feed hay thru two feet of unbroken snow....this was before every body had big bales. We used to put up around 100,000 squares every year. Some we could feed from the barn but most was hauled daily to the cows. We also fed some silage but the tractor crew did most. Of that.

I had several '65 & '66 Chevy 1/2 ton pickups with the 250 six cylinder and three on the tree. Absolutely nothing fancy about them. Drove them all over the western USA chasing after rodeos. They never failed me. Easy to work on. Down the road we went.
