Looks like a good work rig.

The hemi's were pretty uncommon in one tons, especially dually's back then, and for good reason. I'd guess its a little on the gutless side?


Probably is. Haven't pulled a load yet.
I don't plan on towing much with it. The biggest problem so far is it was a volunteer fire department truck. Still gots the siren and lights. The idiots won't quit playing with the sirens.

A side cutter???? Cracker for lineman pliers, or lib..PC for dikes??

Besides the cows come to it. It makes the coyote's howl..and you never know. I may take up firefighting.... only as a hobby of course.
