We are part of the US, as you can see now. Ebay still doesnt reconize us though. somtimes it has its advantages, but most the time it doesnt. like shipping axles or engines... not a good thing. well maybe we can band togeather and do somthing about the emissions laws, since the 3 or 4 70's ford trucks on the road in the winter probably are not affecting the enviroment.

I can agree with that. We usually drive our newer rigs but I drive my 75' to work and use it for plowing snow. This amounts to less than 3000 miles a year yet I have to go get it emission tested every two years. It passed last time with flying colors but it is a pain and not necessary if you ask me. My 96' and 00' are both Diesels and they are exempt as far as testing.
Yeah a guy on ebay argued with me for days about the continental thing. When he would not ship to me I told him he needed to change his add to say something to the effect that he only ships to the lower 48 and he argued that Alaska was not part of the continent. I think we are on the North American continent just like the other states but what do I know. I have just come to realize that we are a third world country and get treated like it..
they could at least drop the handling charges that are out of this world, and give us the actual shipping. since we are in alaska and it costs a fortune to 2nd day air everything that people want to send ups instead up going to post office and sending usps so we get a fair deal.
By the way, if you ever shop at schucks.. always print out the part and price from schucks partsamerica online, and take it to the store. i have saved over 100 bucks several times doing this. that way you pay fair lower 48 price instead of alaska pricing. they have to match their online price. lotsa people dont do this and get ripped off getting parts through them.
