I work for a construction company, I am the general super. One of my foreman came in and said his truck would not start. We have five machanics, they all said the block was broke. I waited a year and ask the owner what he wanted for the truck. He said a thousand dollars. I told him I wouldn't give him a thousand for a truck that the block was broke. We ended up at 650. I ordered the plate that goes between the engine and the trans and drove it home. It didn't look like it does now. I have $2100.00 in it now. I know it sounds bad, but he has got me on a few deals. Since then I have had to put a injector and a alt and two batt. I love this thing. I have got two more trucks from him, with about the same story.

Last night was rough cuz I had to come to my office to load a truck after the Patriots game...then take it home so I could go straight from home to the job in the AM for a 5:30 delivery. If there was no rain in the forecast loading would have been much easier. Supers don't like soggy drywall on their jobs.

Wouldn't it have been easier to put it in the bed rather then tow it?

I get the same comments when I tow the bass boat, so I had to share.

My truck isn't a diesel, but the one I drive for work is an International with the DT466. It's definitely starting to notice the cool mornings. Won't be long until we're plugging them in at night.

I'm with u on this one. Something for me and I got 2 little kids that don't sleep all night some times and stay up late. So most nights I'm lucky if I get 5 hours sleep.

Last night was a different story too many beers 4 hrs sleep hungover and exhausted lol.

But the good thing is I got a bad *** super duty lol

Yep, I just lended my truck to a friend so he could drive it up to NH for the week to move his stuff back home and run my tank dry so I could get the B100 out of it.
