Looks great, with four or five!

Still looks like a short bed to me. Do you have a 6-1/2 foot bed with 115" wheelbase, or an 8 foot bed with 127" wheelbase?

If you didn't shorten it, then a previous owner did. Three quarter ton pickups only came with a 127" wheelbase. Cool truck for sure! Glad you found our forum!

Oh, Former firetrucks are great values! very well maintained, usually very low miles, and good drivetrains, meaning good power and durability. Will normally be a couple holes in the body to patch from lights and sirens, but normally no rust.

I actually like the Orange paint, readymix concrete company I worked for between my Jr. and Senior year in College and after I graduated had everything painted the same shade of orange, even the D100 Dodge shop truck.

With the miles and condition of that truck you should enjoy it for another 20-30 years!
