Edit: Ack! I read yours wrong. You ARE uploading to FTE, from the outside source instead of your computer. Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were just linking it.
For those just linking to an outside source:
The down side to using an outside source for pictures, and not uploading them to the FTE forum, is if you ever remove the pictures, or if the outside source changes anything about the way they are referenced, they can become dead links here.
If you look at old posts (FTE has been around since at least 1999) you find a lot of dead links. It's frustrating to do a search and think you've found exactly what you're looking for, only to find nothing.
I'm not spending your money for you, but if you become a supporter, pictures are as easy as one click, then finding the picture on your own computer. Otherwise, it's honestly not that hard to upload the pictures here.
Theses are not that hard for even non supporters once you do it a few times.

It seems awkward, but whenever you "insert a picture" to one of these threads, the forum is looking for the picture somewhere on the web (which is always available) rather than from somewhere on your hard drive (which isn't always available).

Go to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and sign up for a free account. Then create an album for your truck. Upload any pics you want to post on FTE to that album. Have this album open on your computer when you want to post pics on FTE.
While you're making a post on FTE, select the pic you want to post from your Photobucket album. When the large version of the pic is open, right mouse click on it and select "View Image Info". The image info will be highlighted and will look something like this: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...ghtsafter1.jpg
Copy that highlighted info (right click / copy).
When you have the spot in your post where you want the pic to be placed, select the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the post (looks like a mountain) and paste (right click / paste) the image info you copied in the highlighted box (just shows "http://" when it opens).
