I'm not out, more of a Tactical retreat, the 3500HD has a 454/NV4500.Sorry to hear that you got out of the hotshot business. If it truly was a blessing for you, then I am happy for you.
Keep the paid off iron. Either you get back into it and will need it, or it cons you nothing to have it when you need it for something else.
I know one of the other members here runs AG, but I don't remember if its Owner Operator or if he drives for someone else.
On another note, is that 3500hd a gas engine? I remember you saying that is the one that made you the most per mile.
I still have my FL60s, get them together, and probably pick up a used 48'/53' stepdeck, hopefully things turn around come next spring
The cheapest cost per mile iirc was my RED 99 3500HD with the LBZ swap with stock pistons
At least I'll have a very capable tow rig with the 8.3 cummins/13sp
