I finally did it!

Post by Pdragon22 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 11:15 pm

Finally got a power wagon. Bought a 2013 from the BLM in Idaho. The wife and I drove out and got it on 7-24-19. We live in Montana.
2.5 years of searching and researching and driving everyone nuts with questions. Thanks for the answers I have found here there will be more questions.
So far it has a new center front seat and new 35” tires. This is an upgrade from a 1982 Chevy k30. Now the real fun begins. Mark :lol:
