    i'm hoping this will work out..but im not sure..we are supposed to get a foot of snow tomarrow..and my f-250 has been in the shop since before xmas its supposd to be back on the 26th but im not too sure how that will go. i was having a few issues that needed to be fixed to have a relaible truck again, so we finally broke down and put it in th shop...i just hate this helpless feeling of the snow coming and not having my truck to plow with! :gunsfiring:

    but hopfully she will run as good as she looks now! :redbounce

    it was having a good bit of issues, it was missing when cold, then once warmed up the idle was surging 1k rpms up/down also it would not re start after it was warm, so i had to leave it running if i went anywhere,,,which got expensive quick. they foundout the fuel system was all gummed up and alot of sensors on the motor were bad, along with the starter. then a full tuneup and some ujoints..ect i'll know more once i get it back tomarrow hopfully.

    Nice lookin truck. I'd put a different grille in it though. Those old grilles don't do it for me. Love that paint though

    bunch of bad sensors, starter, all new fuel lines from the tanks to the motor.

    the truck has 61k miles on it(orignal documented) and a 5.0 with the electronic auto tranny.

    i went and got the emissions test done today passed with flying colors so i'm ready to keep plowing!

    Wow, that's a nice looking rig. I wish mine didn't have so much "iron moss."

    Cool truck and grill. I have been there,my truck was in the hospital two snows ago and luckily I have some good hearted plow friends,everything was pushed and no complaints from customers. Its hard to beat good people!!
