    7. 'Final thoughts, good or bad, pros or cons, about owning and driving a 40 series.: Life in the slow lane is good - you can't be in a hurry to drive a 40, so you learn to appreciate the journey, the sights, the sounds, the smells, etc. To enjoy a 30+ year-old truck, you have to appreciate it for what it is, and what it is not.

    8. Link to your build thread: None, sorry. Did/do all my own work and mods on it though.

    9. Your 3 favorite photos (keep them updated):
