Winter heating
Hey every one,

I saw on here the other day some information about heating the cab of my truck this winter but now I can't find the thread for the life of me.

Anyways, I am just starting up with doing some Hot Shot work this winter and I am looking for the most viable heat source to keep myself from freezing this winter. My buddy runs a small generator with a space heater(I'm not a huge fan of the idea). But I saw on here that someone said they run two Deep cycle 12V batteries and are runn ...

Just a few days ago, had a car wedge behind them.
looking at a truck
Looking at an older truck, 1993 dodge dually cummins extended cab, 5.9L tractor engine, outstanding shape, manual transmission, 90,000 miles, $12,000, looks brand new.  No running long haul.  Oilfield hotshot so will likely be home every night or so.  Would it be safe to say I could get 100K out of the older model truck before I could upgrade?  Also, do you think there would be a problem getting work with an older model truck just from a customer stand point?  If the job ...
