    Are your headlights OEM or aftermarket? Where did you get them?

    Hey Scott, I too have a 2000v-10. Mine is only at 120K, and so far the only repair was the chip reader for the ignition switch. Have you had any other problems with yours? Have you done any other performance mods, other than what's in your sig? I have been contemplating selling the 05 6.0 EX, when we return to the lower 48 in a few years, but I know that the 2000 had the weaker trans, and the pulling power of the 6.0 is better, but I'm not looking forward to the typical 6.0 problems, as I've already had with the turbo. But when it's running good, nothing pulls harder! Thanks! Garry

    I guess you'd have to do it for a living to make it pay for itself huh......

    Thanks, I got sipling from a guy in a tire shop that was shaving high spots off tires 40 years ago but don't know if they still do that or if it was even a word.

    Hey Scott, I lost my 2005 Exc Ltd to a dealer in southern Mo. a few years back after its PSD puked for the third time while on vacation with the family. Anyway, after a few years of searching for a gas Exc, I found one on craigslist and bought it on the spot. It's a v10with a 4.30 rear but paddle mirrors... So I'm guessing that to safely tow my 9,600 lb rv trailer, I'll need to add a rear sway bar, trans cooler and, of course, tow mirrors. I can do the third, but I'm unfamiliar with the first two. Could you give me some aftermarket advice? Also, my Exc is 2wd, so it sits a little lower and even tho I pull with a Reese dual cam wd hitch, I was thinking about adding air bladders to help levelize the rear. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    sorry, but is the swap to the 4.30 a safe thing to do aftermarket? Will it perform reliably? I'd hate to do something I'd regret.

    Just today, I went to the concrete place and they loaded 3 yards of sand into my dump trailer for me. Those are 1.5 tons per yard so that's 9,000 lbs plus the 3,500 lbs trailer. 12,500 lbs

    But you have the 4.30. I can't find one :-(
    only 3.73's
