Talking New to the Iowa Chapter!!!!!!!

Hello everyone. I would just like to introduce myself and say that I have found a lot of interesting material from this site. I live in Missouri Valley, IA and have had my truck for a little over 2 years. I have a 1999 4.2L V6 5-speed Flareside F-150. I have put dual exhaust on it last year. The only problem that I have had is engine clatter, but all in all I have enjoyed owning this vehicle. I will drive this truck until it falls apart.

Hey! Welcome to the chapter... if you ever come over to the Omaha metro, keep an eye out for my blue/white 70 4x4 with the FTE sticker in the back window... I've only seen one other truck like mine since I've been here. Missouri Valley is a great little town, we were looking for a house up that way, but I decided I didn't want to commute that far to work every day.

I am actually in the Omaha area quite often. I go to college down in Omaha and have been for a while now. There is nothing to do in Missouri Valley, so I am down in Omaha/Council Bluffs spending most of my time there.

You gotta love those small towns I work in downtown Omaha at UP. I've only been here since last June, had to give up on living in Montana after the second round of unemployment. Omaha isn't too bad for a bigger city... I'm in shock over property taxes, and every other little thing Nebraska has figured out how to tax!

Yeah Nebraska is notorious for taxing like hell. It costs a fortune to register your truck over in Nebraska compared to Iowa. Nebraska is really money hungry. Also, I was wondering what the law is for having catalytic converters. Can I cut them off and get away with it in both Iowa and Nebraska?

that is something we can't tell you on a public forum since cats fall under federal law. But Iowa doesn't have emissions testing yet soooooooo, your best judgement.

To my knowledge, Nebraska doesn't have any kind of emission testing either... They are probably working on a way to tax emissions...

I haven't transferred my vehicle registations yet. I was waiting till the house deal wrapped up. Doesn't look the truck will cost too much. It cost me about $300 to tag my new Harley in September, plus the 5% or so state sales tax on vehicle purchases. Everybody complains about all the taxes, but they keep supporting the guys in charge who make up all the taxes.

Ok, off my soap box now! Let me know if you ever want to get together for coffee and swap truck stories, cufan97.

Rob
