    Unfortunately my YouTube career came to a roadblock when I realized I was using my school email, so I had to start over with a different email address. There goes my 4 subscribers and my progress towards a million bucks.

    I finally installed the utility cap that I bought last week on my f250 today. I am very happy with this cap. There is so much tool storage. 20210301_182326.jpg 20210301_182310.jpg I had a 3 ton hoist sitting around, so I just chained it up to a beam in the barn. Pictures aren't they best, but it looks pretty good. I used six 3/8 bolts with wax/lock nuts, so it ain't going nowhere:Thumbs Up

    i work at a box truck rental and leasing company as a Fueler/washer/detailer. it is good pay, uniforms and safety clothes provided and the guys will teach me what i need to know and i can move up to a entry level tech at some point. basically i get the trucks cleaned up and do a PM check on them before they get sent back out. i love this job so far.

    yes and no. I bought it over the summer, and have been fixing it up, and I haven't registered it yet so I just run farm tags locally for right now. I am going to get it registered in the next month or so, now that I got most of the bugs worked out of it. It's a long story, so I will just leave it at that lol

    The gear ratio is not the same between front and rear diff, front is 3.55 and rear should be 4.10 but think is 4.53. So it is not to the point of having the front shaft, also it is going to need ladder/traction bars for the rear.

    Well Im not going to give her a brake, went and got a load of gravel. Told a bucket from a bobcat is 500lb and I got 3, so that is what was charged for. I dont think is correct since just had close to 1500lb in the bed, it sits lower and have to run at a higher rpm to move this weight at same speed as before. Hope this is enought to get her to stop drinking oil, taking this on a run tomorrow.

    If you want to road trip over, I can get you hooked to some loads that will guarantee the elimination of any ring setting issuesLOL 22k should do it as far as a heavy working load. It keeps my beast from drinking anything but fuel......for now:joker: I imagine I’ll pop a head at some point

    Thanks for the offer but I dont think she is ready to run that far, I am hoping for the best that she will make it to my house.

    I drove the crap out of my truck. That seemed to stop the oil consumption. When I first got it, it had just been sitting for 10 years and then idled around for yard work. She needed some heat.
