I'm on the mobile version so hopefully the pictures work. 80k miles, imported to Canada from Chicago. Been awesome so far, 4r100 kinda sucks but it does the job. The reverse gear is super long which is nice for plowing.

Averaging 10.7 mpg, but I haven't towed o er 5k yet.
You can gain a good deal of power & around 3-4 mpg with exhaust mods. It's almost hard to believe until you experience the difference first hand. Really nice looking truck you got, love the color. I wish I had a long box.

Ya I'm gonna get rid of that disgusting, horribly designed Y pipe first. Then branch out from there.

Did get some new shoes

Yea the PO put them on there because the old ones help moisture. Not sure how I feel about them, but I feel strong enough that I don't feel like spending any money replacing them! It has Smoked LED recon tails as well.

Pretty sure they're required equipment for any of the quadrasteer trucks, due to increased rear track width. Any quadrasteer vehicle I've ever seen has got them...

2slo, nice looking Yukon. That should be a fun vehicle to tow with given the 6.0 and ability to turn on a dime..

8.1 would have been nice but never offered with quad steer. In tow mode I can do a u turn in the middle of the street without backing up

I have been compiling photos and am about to start a build thread. Probably will get it going in the next week or two.

It is a 90 Intl 7100 tractor. Shorter wheelbase. dt466 all mechanical. 55k miles Eaton 6 speed fuller manual. 12k front and 25k rear axles. Air brakes. Flatbed as pictured was made by me, still a work in progress. Paint looks rough, but mechanically works good. It just took me 2500 miles round trip to moab so no complaints here.

I want one like it and I don't even need it. Big, badass, and I would just pull cattle and horses around with it...even if they didn't want to go
