That makes god sense bud. If you cannot afford to fix it or if you ned to rely heavily on it then treading softly is a good thing.
I took it out a couple weeks ago to my buddies and my tree stand on his land. It got blown over is a freak plow wind and since it is 21 feet tall, 3 stories it has a bit of weight to it. I pounded through some deep stuff, mud and water, twice and then hook the stand to the bumper and cantilevered it back into place. She is a working truck but I still hand wash and wax her at home.
I love my FORD!!!!!!!!!
Signed the Chevy guy!!! lol
