Took a zoom boom course a few years ago. Came into course with the how hard could it be attitude. Got a rude awakening. Good course learned a lot, and got my attitude adjusted

Wasn't gonna say Ford but it did cross my mind.
Think really the Ford use to be a good truck but there all **** anymore. Think the only good truck is an old one with a stick shift.
My friend was telling me to remove the heads on the new Ford truck you have to remove the cab as ridiculous as that sounds I can see it. Where do these designers get their ideas from?
They sure broke the lightbulb with that one.

Big fall consignment auction yesterday. I got a bigger orange wagon that I had been wanting at least a year. I should have bought a combine because it was 15 years newer than my newest and they fought to get 4 grand. That model sells for 15 to 20 grand.

Wow I guess that would have been a hell of a deal on a combine.
Glad ya finally got your wagon and hope you can get a deal on a tractor.

Looked under the hood of a Ram lately? Ask Biff about the joys of working on that POS. Main reason I sold the one I had was because I didn't want to take on that big of a job on what would still be a POS even with a new motor. Generic Motors ain't much better.

I know what you mean Randy I had to lift the body on a Suburban 4 inches to replace a sensor on the back of the engine. POS for sure.

It is common practice these days as not much is accessible anymore and trucks seem to be taller too. Half an hour to 45 minutes and the cab is up and out of the way. Much easier on the body to work on as well. Here is a pic I took in our shop a few months ago

I guess if your use to doing it it is better.
But Glad I'm retired and don't have to do it anymore.
