My ole Diesel OLE RED, was retired and passed on to another guy to bring her back to life again. She aquired catastrophic failure to the ultimate degree when it was least expected. I blew out overdrive along with destroying the transmission cross member support and rear U-joint,,which was followed by severing the rear brake lines and blowing out a suspension air bag. With doing so, it dropped the drive shaft on the pavement along with beating the snot out of the under carriage of the flatbed. Was slightly embarrasing being along side the road with the 5th wheel, 4 door pick up and pup trailer in tow. The tow driver looked over the situation and came to the same conclusion,, ultimate malfunction of the umteenth degree. I moved the 5th wheel hitch to the 4 door truck and rehooked up the 5th wheel and pup trailer and continued the final few miles of the trip. I got a call the following day inquiring about ole red, and I sold her to a guy who fell in love with the unique body and style. So ole red will have a new home and with some elbow grease, she will be back on the roadways of America soon.
Now my collection is down to the 4 door Dodge 1/2 ton, the extended cab Dodge 1/2 ton, The Ford diesel and the ole Chevy 1 ton 4 door.
