  1. I am possibly looking to equip my trucks with IPR plate reader cameras, and am possibly looking for a company that I can go through to finance them. if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for thoughts and input on how these systems work and their effectiveness.
  2. PTO has been replaced. Complete service with Amsoil, New lifetime warranty Alternator, Just completed a 630 Mile road trip pulling a car trailer with my 2005 GMC Sierra on it to show the truck to someone who ultimately was just wasting my time. SOLID TRUCK Still for sale
  3. PTO and pump have been replaced as of today. comes with a TON of extra parts including a cowl induction hood. I am still finding parts as I am going through my shop. I will compile a list. everything is included.
  4. 1998.5 Dodge Ram 3500 24 Valve THE GOOD 186,000 Miles Quad Cab ( All doors open ) 8 Inch Exhaust From the turbo back with 8 inch Chrome semi stack Edge Juice With Attitude Fass Adjustable Fuel Pump New vp44 Brand New Radiator Brand New Starter Brand New Fan Clutch Rebuilt Transfer case New U Joints New Carrier Bearing Rebuilt Lift Cylinder on the wheel lift 6 Almost New Yokohama Tires ( Less than 3000 Miles ) Leather Interior AM/FM CD Player Ice Cold AC THE BAD Needs the 5th Gear Nut Fix. I have removed the 5th Gear so it doesn't do any damage and will include it with the sale PTO NEEDS REPLACED ( While being stored someone stole it ) Hydraulics work well, however there is a few leaks that would need to be addressed. I used it this way for a long Time with no issues Pivot Pin On the wheel lift would need to be replaced. this was the original reason it was parked. Needs New Cable. Emergency Rotators are included however will need to be re-installed. I took them off so they didn't get destroyed by weather. they are red and blue, so depending on your state you may need new lenses This truck is far from perfect, however with a little bit of work would make an Awesome starter truck or a great back up truck. Until I parked it it passed Wyoming State Inspections with flying colors. I would Not Hesitate to drive this truck ANYWHERE. I have just outgrown it and moved into medium duty. Sharp looking Truck, hate to see it sitting around and rotting away. Asking $ 6500.00
  5. Figured I would start this just to see how many Wyoming folks are out there
  6. I have purchased all the systems I have from eBay. just have to make sure they are complete. some she wiring.ellers think they have the overhead console and that is a complete system. also have to make sure the wiring is in tact. some of the folks who uninstall them just hack the crap out of the wiring. I just looked and saw 5 different complete systems listed.
  7. That is actually really cool . as for the disrespectful comments... that is todays society. and you can almost bet the only thing they are able to do is run their mouths. they can be whatever they think they are as long as it is online. to people like that the only important one is themselves. and have absolutely no clue what they are talking about. if they or one of their family members get plowed into by a drunk driver it must be their fault because they obviously need to learn how to drive a car better. makes sense to me
  8. Very sorry to hear. sending condolences from our family to yours
  9. Nice display, and one could hope it gets the message across.
  10. people just don't bother to pay attention. I think it is the entitlement mentality that everyone seems to have kicking in, or the lack of common sense not sure which. who cares what's going on around them. they are in a hurry and they have text messages and phone calls to answer and the only people in the world that matter is them, so you had better get out of their way. lord help you if you don't.
  11. was just curious how the rest of you folks handle Tims training. around here NOBODY such as law enforcement or fire rescue like to share their TIMS training and certifications. kind of the no you can't play in my sand box mentality, so unfortunately if you are not part of one of these agency's your on your own. I have been able to find a couple of places online that you can get the basics from, however I think hands on training is better any day of the week. does anyone have any suggestions or ideas ?
  12. I have actually equipped all of my trucks with in cab camera's. the ones I Use are actually the same ones used by law enforcement for their patrol cars. The ones I have installed are made by a company called Kustom Signals. you can actually find them for really good prices if you buy the slightly older units when law enforcement agency's upgrade to the newer models. mine are all digital eyewitness ION eclipse systems. and as long as the person uninstalling them takes their time and doesn't just chop the wires you can buy them complete with 3 camera's and all the sensors for around $ 300 bucks. and they are color night vision cameras with audio. the nice thing about these, and the reason law enforcement uses them is all the video's are embedded with a watermark that ONLY Kustom signals can read so the video's are admissible in court if it ever comes to that. I consider it cheap CYA insurance.
  13. I will try to dig it out and snap some pics of it for you
  14. both progressive and geico offer what they call a NON Commercial commercial policy. Yes that is what they call it. it is for vehicles that are to large to insure with the standard policy so they have to have a commercial policy, but the vehicles are not being used for commercial purposes. these policies are commercial policies without ANY Filings or coverages other than the state minimum liability. no on hook, property, etc. and you will find it is up to the trooper pulling you over what HE feels is for profit. I'm sure it varies from state to state as well.I had a trooper pull me over here in Wyoming while I was hauling one of my own vehicles that I had just bought with a wrecker that I kept around for personal use and had NOT FOR HIRE on the side of the truck. he tried to write me a ticket for no DOT numbers and hauling for hire because he felt I was going to use the truck I was towing home to go to work and make a pay check, and NOBODY owns a tow truck for personal use. therefor it was a for profit tow. that was a stretch and he lost miserably in court. but the point is it is ultimately up to the officer/trooper and how they interpret how the laws read. if your buddy buys you lunch or a six pack for helping him out you have been compensated for towing for him and that is for profit. and depending on the state, the rollback, wrecker has to go through a state inspection to make sure it is fully equipped with the proper lighting and equipment before you can even drive the damn thing. it can be done, but depending on your state it is sketchy and will give law enforcement a reason to hassle you. keep in mind too even if you are hauling your own stuff if you are more than I think it is 150 air miles from your home base, whether the vehicle requires a CDL or not you are required to keep a log book and comply with federal Laws regarding driving hours ECT. found that out the hard way when I Used my rollback to travel through IOWA to pick up my new light duty wrecker.
