Holy crap! Nearly $100,000 for a general use pickup truck. I love my 7.3 more and more every time I see it.

Don't get me wrong, it sure would be nice to have a 2018 F-450, but I would not be willing to have that payment, ever!

Heck, if you're planning on dropping that much on a pickup you may as well get yourself a good ol' Peterbilt 379 or 389. I'm sure the repairs would be roughly the same cost once you're out of warranty. I'll take the $400 or so I am about to drop in my front axle over that monthly $1k+ payment for the next eight years or so.

(Speaking of, last week finished putting the third engine in my buddy's 389. I hope we never get as proficient at replacing the 7.3 in my truck).

Happy Friday morning Sous and all fellow gents. I am on vacation for a couple weeks, so some truck work will begin after cattle checks today. I guess I should start a thread, but I have new hubs, slotted/drilled rotors, high grade metallic pads, Beru GPs, and some re-routing of lines and general cleaning. I am also going to address cleaning my hubs and trying to not have to replace them. I also ordered a set of factory fog lights, but those won't be here until Monday. I am actually excited to do the work. The shop is open, sun is out, and it'll be 70 degrees today.

It's the weekend!

Starting to look for a second crew cab 7.3 for a spare. Needs to be an auto so the future wife can drive it. Seen some reasonable prices lately for the 99-03 trucks. Comfortable seating for 6 is a priority and in my opinion my 99 F450 wins over her 11 town and country van.

I'll do it! And you keep us posted in the heart scan. We'll keep you in our thoughts over here. My vacay is just going to be hanging around the house with a few local trips with the family....the best kind. I'll prolly still get on a horse or two just for some pleasure riding.

Removing and cleaning the hubs is fairly easy and worthwhile in the preventive maintenance area. That is one of the things I did when I first bought my truck.

Putting them back in, well that is a next level task in my opinion. I fought for 15 minutes trying to get them re-installed and lined up correctly.

Or the additional cost to insure it either. You're right on Sous!

When that happens I spin the inside like a roulette wheel then try again. Sometimes I get lucky and it goes on the first time. Other times it's lather, rinse, repeat until it lines up and slides on. It has tried my patience on numerous occasions, especially since you are almost done with the job when you get to that point.

That's cheap. My Mustang was more than that new.

Luckily I bought it pre-depreciated with low miles.

Oh great, really? Definitely not what I wanted to hear. Hopefully it won't be a big deal.

Not a big deal, just time consuming. Sometimes I've popped them right on and other times I played hub roulette for 20 minutes until pops in.

The hardest part is that popping the auto-locking hub into place and putting the snap ring on are pretty much the last things to do before putting your tools away. That's what makes it frustrating.
