Beautiful working truck, something different then all those Pete's and Kenny's.

And you prove there is no need for expensive aftermarket stuff all the time.

Looks great, gr chris

Nice Logger! Now thats the type of log trailer I'm used to seeing in real life. I noticed the decal on the door of the tractor. DeRidder is where I live.

Very nice work....I like the idea of using the old Bic razor cover for the light bar.....Just goes to show what can be achieved with a little imagination.....I used to make them out of old flat tooth brushes, but they don't make those any more, so I'm left with using other things.....I really like your idea, though....Gonna have to use that one....Great work....
