This truck was donated to Lytle, Texas on March 15th, 2004
UVFR said goodbye to an old, smelly friend. T287 left for its new home in Lytle, Texas today; but not without a little drama.
First, the truck would have been too high the way it sat....so we had to take off the ladder assembly from the boom. Also, we had to remove the cage.....how much fun was that?
Then Chuck couldn't get it on the ramp....without almost dropping it over the side...but, very skillfully he got it on board without too much problem...
So without further delay...enjoy the pics.....there is also a video floating around somewhere.....
