Said a prayer or two for Bill this morning. Hopefully all goes well with the surgery.

I would imagine he is giving some doctors and nurses a hard time by now...

Haha! Yeah, been keeping him in our thoughts out west! He'll be good...just cranky from having to lay around longer than he wants to I'm sure.

I've texted him a couple times, yet to hear back. I'm assuming he's still pretty groggy at this point.

Yeah we sorta get credit for that. Its not a course credit, but its a great resume builder!

Hopefully Bill is alright. I bet he is. His wife probably took his phone away so he didnt do anything stupid!
Actually.. knowing them and their relationship she probably would give it to him JUST to watch the shenanigans. Hes probably still knocked out.

Just depends on the condition of the truck.

Good point lol. I got one pic of it. It was a pretty crappy pic but it appears to not have any rust on the fenders. On the drivers side at least lol

It looks like to me in that blurry pic there is a white/grey discolored blotch over the rear fender towards the rear fuel tank door. That could be rust or primer.

And I dont think a 351 would get better mpg than an IDI.

I guess it depends on the mechanical condition of them both, but I hear the IDIs get great mileage... they're just DOGS and take too much money to get any more hp out of em.

Mine gets about 11.5 usually. That's not great lol.

Were meeting Wednesday to look at each others trucks. KBB says its worth $3600... I paid a grand less than that for my old 4x4 IDI from a dealership. Seems kinda hard to believe lol

Im just wanting a cheaper truck basically. And like I said, its gotta be the only IDI in the world that gets 11.5 mpg... that 351w should get 12-13

And when the PSD dually is done, Ill prolly end up selling it anyways lol
