    That's why I said, put the add up so we can see what he's looking at. He's got two threads on this.

    It's either a 6.7L V8 Diesel or a 6.8L V10 Gas motor. Unless you're talking old, from the mid 1980's then it could be a 6.9L IDI Diesel motor.

    I think he just got it wrong, He specifically stated diesel in his question.

    If you're bored while waiting on snow, just take a look at some of his older posts.

    Just did the same thing. All I can say is, wow. I'm glad I finished school and know my business a little better than some people do.

    What do you guys think about these front wheel drive Super Duties? Any good? Can I push snow with them?

    The ones with the fifth wheel get better traction

    3 is better then 2

    Very few people do I ever miss in my life, but those two brought so much joy to my life in the years that they were around. There Are just those people that you come across ever now and then that make you think... Wow! Or damn! ... Or holy ****!!!!
