Well its kinda of a long story. So i sold my 1993 S10 3 weeks ago after owning it for 18 years. I decided it was time for a bigger truck that i can haul a camper with. So i went and found a 1999 F250 V10. Took it home and did an oil change and notice the block was broke around the tranny. Took it in to have it looked at and it was indeed broke in two places with the tranny only holding on with 2 bolts. I went back to the used car lot and after discussion and them checking out my claims that they thought could not have happen they agreed to take the pile of parts back with the intent that i would buy another truck, so long story shorter i now have a 1999 F250 Super Cab 5.4 V8 that was check out thoroughly by a trusted mechanic (so it was in really good shape). It is black with grey trim, all stock and it has 118k on it. It runs great except their is a hard shift between 2nd and 3rd gears with i am still trying to figure out. Love the truck and glad i bought it even with gas prices rising. So i kinda new to big trucks so any advise you can give a guy I would appreciate.
Thanks for letting join the chapter.
