High Intentions...Eric... I am looking for some head lights because mine are all dull and beat up. What do you recommend? Looking to do this this week. Just finished th e5 Star Live Wire install and love it. Still looking to swap out my stock front spring with a pair I got from a friend from his F250 diesel. No miles on them. I am worried because I think I will get at least 1.5 to 2 inches of lift from them which i wood think i would have to change my hanger by 2 inches. Anyone that knows please give me some knowledge!

I turned the heater on for the first time since ownership, and it worked swell. It was a brisk 55* outside...

I love our cooler weather! Any time I get below Chicago I start to sweat! When I visit the inlaws in TX I nearly die going between air conditioned building to air conditioned building.

She enjoyed the first cold morning (50 Degrees) out and with the Rotella T5, it fired right over with about two turns. No complaints, nothing....(not that she ever did complain)

Took mine out on the first trip of the season. Still a tad warm for my taste. I really need to replace my leaking up-pipes. Losing boost and spiking EGTs are annoying! And may as well upgrade the turbo while I'm at it - and cannot forget to delete the ebpv, adding a high flow outlet....and the list goes on...managed to get my trans hot pulling a 11k lbs on 10% grade for ~1mile. Spiked to 220 and saw the in dash gauge climb pretty quick. Stopped and let er cool for 10ish mins. First time I noticed it do that! Scared me. But from what I've read, there is argument for ideal temps. Probably flush/change fluid this weekend.

Hauled some cement bags for driveway repair this past weekend and used it as a family mover. I really need to find a place to get this thing off road in Wisconsin.

Hi Eric,

The lights on my Ex are fine, so I haven't replaced them yet, but I have put this series headlights on my 97-F150, 200-Taurus, and 94-Thunderbird. They are build to factory specs and were delivered to the door preset (aligned) for the intended vehicle. I didn't even have to have them aligned!
