Default Diesel 80 in Boulder!

Turbo to be exact...1HDFT with a H155 to be more exact...I done seen it!

So my dad and I were sitting at Chautauqua Open Space parking lot eating lunch, and this 80 starts coming down the hill towards us, slowly. It was all clanging and clattering, so I was like , what's up with that? But then he stopped and backed up into a parking spot a couple spaces down, and as soon as he put it under load backing up that little hill, I know it had to be a diesel.

It's a '96, maroon, locked; I talked with the guy for a couple minutes, hopefully he can make it the meeting on Wedn., I also gave him a TLCA card, so hopefully he'll at least show up here on the forum He said he got the engine/tranny from the UK and did the swap himself, so I was like

Now I want a TD 80 more than ever, after hearing how QUIET it is (only one I've heard besides Wes's) compared to everything else in the US of A. Nice truck dude! :fing:
