Nice straight lookin' tractor! Any recent pics to go with it? It's a good feeling to get it loaded up and headed home. Back in '08 I had mine hauled home on a roll back, since it wasn't running.

At least I know I'm not the only one running narrow rims to fit my trailer...

Nice looking tractor!

Also, it's amazing how much different your truck looks with the different tires on it. I had to look at the pictures twice to make sure it was the same truck.

I like the Ford truck also!

Very nice job on your M. :big afro:

I haven't changed the looks of it YET, however it is scheduled soon to get another engine installed and different rear tires on it, then painting etc.
I am anxious to get it running the current engine has issues in the timing gear and will be replaced with a used one that I bought in Wisconsin.
More pics will be posted as work progresses. You have a fine looking M.

Sounds like you've got alot o' work lined up for your "M"!

Yep, same truck, '97 F350 XLT SRW 4WD 7.5 gas, 112K miles. I put those 265 85R 16's on it several years ago and hated them, too noisy...hard to believe but the extra 1/2" in height made my already high gear ratio even higher. Last summer I went back to the LT235 85's...like gettin' my ol' truck back!
