What's crazy is that before the Excursion, guys like that were building these for twenty plus years - using Bronco parts, and now that the Excursion is gone they're back in business. It just doesn't make sense why Ford doesn't make them. GM still sells these things, so there is a market ...

A market, yes, but enough to be more profitable than the alternatives?... obviously not. I can't see Ford walking away from money if there is enough of it to be had!

I wonder if things like CAFE or environmental appearance are more important?

Might take a month or two to get it all taken care of with evrything else going on, but this is good.

Have a great Tuesday!

SO how cheap does an allegedly lightly used GTP38R need to be these days to buy it over a new KC38R? Currently happy with my modded stock turbo but don't want to miss a "deal".

Some friends showed this to me a few weeks back, and I about died. Watching this is a great way to start the day.

Fired up the chainsaw and trimmed some low hanging branches yesterday, burning some old wood on my blackberry patch, then I'm going to give the boys (dogs) a bath today.

Hi guys, been busy with kid stuff. The redhead may have busted her car up enough that I can add some more funds to my "rejoin the F250 7.3 crowd" budget. She ran it low on oil and now it sounds like a card stuck in the bike spokes below 2000 rpms. Blessings in disguise, right?

I've also been doing the winter checklist. Drain the pool, cover the water spigots with those foam thingys, turn the gas back on to the furnace, cover the fish pond, drain the water out of the filters and pumps, all that good stuff.

I've been banging my head against a wall trying to install a water softener too, but I'm no plumber and finding the main water tap in my slab house has proven difficult. The only place I can think of looking that I haven't is behind my water heater where it's plumbed in. If so, it goes under my driveway and under the garage. I'm probably going to pull my water heater out next week and tear into the wall there to see what's what.

the joys of home ownership
