Nice truck. I'd sure like to have my '64 back.

My first 4x4

A good buddy of mine — some of you met him in Moab — wound up owning this International Harvester from Grumpy Old Men.

Re: My first 4x4

Cool rigs. I had a 1974 W200 plow truck for 12 or so years. I paid $500 for the plow, and they threw the truck in for free. I sold the plow 12 years later for $300, and threw the truck in for free. That thing was close to indestructible,

Minus the crewcab.

Fun fact, truck from Overboard is the same truck from the opening scene of National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Yes, if I could undo selling mine all those years back I would in a heartbeat.

Re: My first 4x4

This was my first. 02 f250 7.3L 4x4 auto on 37's. Loved that damn truck. I mainly used it to tow but i would hit a few easy trails with it but it was way too long and i eventually totaled it offroad. After this incident i bought another truck and my xj to wheel.

I sold it to a buddy and he fixed it. It was mainly body damage. A body shop swapped the cab and it was back on the road.

No, but just picture the rustiest thing you can think of, 1/4" plywood covering the bedsides to hide (some of) the rust, plenty of ventilation holes in the roof and floor. Now, imagine something 100% worse, and you've got it.
