Milk tank looks like a great size diamond.

I like RD's with a modern hood.

The sleeper seems to me good enough.

I'm looking at it now and thinking to myself how easy looks a ready stuff and how much labor that nobody can see it conteins.

Didnt notice that was a mid 90's R till I looked again I always liked tha painted fender extension behind the front wheel, the 97 up R's I drove had the black plastic molded fender extension on em. I put many a mile on an R model tri-axle dump I put 300,000 miles on one in three years here locally, never had to do any repair work to it at all but a clutch at 312,000, it was a great truck.

I was lucky, the boot is in good shape.Not cracked on top corners. I work with a young fellow who did commercial roofing in the past and he tells me the rubber roofing material would be perfect for this. He brought in a small piece which I've made gaskets for the bunk latches,hood latches,etc.It is about 1/8" thick and quite pliable, I think it would be ideal.Steve
