Only too true Bill. I almost crashed my real ride last week. Went to drive it to a shop to have the brakes fixed and oil leaks sealed up and the master went out at the end of my street.... Got her stopped before taking out a row of mailboxes and decided to just do the brakes myself. Ordered a master from BlueOlive which arrived in like two days!!! NAPA had the few other parts I needed such as wheel cylinders and bearing seals. Backs are done and diff oil changed. Master is in and she stops okay now but I want to dig into the fronts now. Won't have time this weekend. Here she is. You have all seen her. Will get some additional pics at some point but not priority at the moment!

Got any photos of the 95 and 99 Kevin because they have got to look as sweet as those vehicles.
Here is a pic of the 95. This is my daily driver driver for a work truck.
I plan on this being my last work truck. I am going to drive this truck until the wheels fall off of it, put em back on and drive it some more. It weighs in at just over 10,000 lbs before I put any material on it and it does consistently 13-15 MPG . The diesel has really been a great investment. I built that bed in late 84 for the 85 F350 that I had just bought. When I bought the 95 diesel, I raised the bed and drove the new truck under it.
I can't find any pics of the 99 F250. The only one that I found is with the trailer hooked up and you can't hardly see the truck. I will get it cleaned up this weekend and get some pics of it. I really should have some for myself.
