Default Slag's Truck

Here is my old "Big Blue" snowplow truck.

Now it has a new cab, a new 8 foot flatbed and new plowlights
Most of the rewiring has been done with welding cable for the plow and most of the lights on the flatbed. I like this because the "old" truck had only one headlight, a plowlight, that would work only if you hit a bump just right. Now I have 22 running lights besides the plowlights. I couldn't drive at night before or daytime savely but now I can.

Notice that the rear axle is single wheel and the bearings are going out quickly. also the springs are broken and the shocks are gone.
These axles are only 1/2 ton front and back with a gear ratio of 3.07
