I usually drive my '68 W200 from April through November. I'm eventually
going to have another '68 W200 Utiline that I'll mount a snow plow on.
I'll use it for "clean up" plowing.... when I'm not in any rush to get our
lane opened & cleaned up..... that I do with my '03 W2500 HEMI with
an electric over hydraulic BOSS plow.... nice and easy to operate with
a hand-held remote :Thumbsup

This is my ex Forest Service rig:

It gets used on the farm. I sold the bed to put on a flatbed for more utility, but the guy hasn't picked it up in over a year. If he is MIA then maybe I'll rebuild the bed and stick it back on...
This is what I would like to own....

even better if it was a cabover...

Here is my yellow Power Wagon,hard at work.It serves duty almost daily hauling tools,drywall,mud,scaffold,ect. I've been driving it for 20 years. It has given me no reason to replace it. (Though it could use some new paint).

I mainly use mine for what was originally said. Hauling, sightseeing, driving, etc. However, that's my ford. The dodge mainly just holds down a section of my driveway :banghead Eventually, it will replace the ford's duties, as my ford is a reg cab and with a family it isn't as convenient. I really can't wait to get this crew up and on the road :lol:
What a mess.

Mine is like me, retired and not used to hard work anymore. :lol: I mostly use it to fill up half of my garage and add to my insurance bill, but do take it out about once every month, maybe more often if I need something from Lowe's or Home Depot. At least the insurance is cheap, about $15 per month.
