welcome to the taco adventure! :cool:...
this is my old truck of 25+ years aged, the picture is from a couple of years back...
it currently has almost 262,ooo miles. (now has 275k on 10-31-22)

View attachment 33726

The truck is still on the original clutch parts, except for the hydraulic master/slave that was replaced last year because that 3rd pedal would not fully return from near the floor after reversing backwards, and had to pull it back up proper with the toe!
the clutch bearing is making a wee bit of chatter, but nothing too pesky at the moment, awhile back it was diagnosed as the source of this insane gremlin rattle that popped up a few years ago (more ranting on that later!!)

it also has diffrent shoes onit currently... truckin' with Michelin defender LTX, which are MUCH less road noisy on the concrete trails than those GoodYear duraTrac are, but the Michelins are not great wheelin' in the blizzards like those duraTracs were
Just saw this…..That's a keeper Jay. ;)

The odds are high that it will be closed again due to icy conditions. It's the end of January after all
