About “Ol' Red”

This is actually my second truck. I am the third owner. The first owner used it as a work truck till 1996. The second owner who i bought it from owned the truck for 14 years. He only drove the truck in the summer. He towed a little 19ft camper. It hardly ever hit the snow. It never got rained on for 14 years until I got it. But the truck was kept extremely clean. Over that 14 years the truck was babied. As you can tell by the pics. The truck got its most use in that first year. After that it was turned into a garage bum.


When I got the truck I had to put minimal money into it. The wheels were off my first truck so i was able to sell the origionals. I put a plastic bed liner in and put a chrome hitch cover on it. I put a good sum of money into taking all the dents out of the truck and having it detailed. The only other money I put into it was for cranking the torsion bars. The truck hasnt needed anything.

I use the truck for multiple things. Its mainly a daily driver. But when weather changes, work needs to be done, or a friend needs help. The truck turns into something other than a driver. The Nebraska winters can change with the turn of the key. I really put the truck to work this winter. It was plowing through 10+ inches of snow. Putting on the new wheels and tires helped. The Wrangler ATS's performed great. But the truck has all the power needed. Put the pedal down and you can burn all four wheels. The truck also is the first pick for picking up lumber from hardware stores or anything else. You can load this truck down and still get that great response when you step on the pedal. Also with my friends driving cars the last winter I got the calls. The truck is a great puller. Slap a strap and the truck does all the work. When you show up with this truck to pull someone out they like it. They get pulled in style. But when push comes to shove this truck is the first choice for work.

This truck also pulls the many toys we have. It tows a trailer with a couple dirtbikes and a quad to a 20ft ski boat with ease. This thing will haul everything. It has an extra leaf spring on each side (not factory) and a heavy duty hitch. This truck will get the job done right. This truck can get you out of sticky situations fast. Especially while pulling a trailer. We towed a trailer down a minimum maintence road in the rain and mud. The truck kept going. Mossy boat ramps dont stop this thing either. Does just as good as my dads 3/4ton. But all in all you can throw whatever you want on the back of Ol' Red and it will pull it.

The best part of this truck is its my trophy winner. It has won me multiple trophies. I started showing it a couple weeks after I got it and has been put up against new camaros and mustangs and suprisingly i have won.

Now thats what i call a truck.
