  1. Would love to take this one for a mount.
  2. It's 4wd and a dif lock but the front left tire didn't seem to lock in. He has only had it 2 years this Christmas. I found it weird all 4 wouldn't spin.
  3. @_Wilson_™ that tire is just like the left one, just slam full of mud!!
  4. Father in law found some soft ground the other week. My mother in law was amused 1 bit lol. He tried to use his MF 4243 to pull it out. Couldn't walk it out with the bucket either. Luckily he had a guy digging out his pond some more and he pulled it out no problem with a JD excavator. I had just had a guy cut my roads for me. I know where not to take my truck!

    Weather

    Still hot as a stolen catalytic converter at the junk yard right now. Literally can be standing there and feel ok, 5 minutes later sweat is pouring off me. Had a guy hand me a few packs called Sqwincher's. They are concentrated electrolytes that you tear the top of the pack open, add 6 ounces of water and drink. The grape ones are pretty good. We drink a lot of water at work all day. still doesn't seem like it is enough.

    We still have plenty of sunshine during the winter. Nothing like a good nap in the deer stand, cold wind blowing, sun shining in the windows, chair reclined back...

    Weather

    Friday evening it rained 4 or 5 inches in a matter of no time. Now, Monday evening ,it's 5pm and a heat index of 100*. Heat has been the worst I can remember since July 4th. I've always had an outside job since I was 13 working in the tobacco fields. BRING ON FALL AND WINTER!!
  8. Are there not any RV/Camper lots around you? Ditch the CL sellers.
  9. That's just me. I mean my Chevelle has a 1050cfm carb but with time I will convert it to EFI.
  10. Glad you are doing better Fish! take it easy and follow the Doc's words. I smoked back in my parting days. I saw the only way to quit was to change my ways.
  11. We have a 30k miles F350 V10 at the shop now. Not under warranty and the Ford dealership says it needs a motor. Needless to say we have a V10 crate motor on the floor in the shop. They like to spit out spark plugs also. Not sure if they have the timing chain problems of the 5.4 Triton motors or not. I think Ford put 2 different trans in some models, 1 built for towing, the other not so much. The 460, I guess that would make it Carb'd. I personally would not but a motor home with a carb unless you like working on it. Guessing this might have a C-6 trans. Possibly no overdrive?? The 454 has been around for a long time. Not sure what year you looked at a TBI or Vortec model . The vortec models were bad for fuel pressure regulator and injectors leaking. I've replaced my fair share of them but has been a while. This should have a 4l80e trans which is a good one for pulling. The later models were the better. TBi could have a TH400 or an early 4l80e in it.
  12. Woke up at 430 to take my oldest to drop off for summer camp. Headed in a few to meet my mom and dad for lunch. Enjoy the day!
  13. Welcome from another ENC member!!
  14. Had a few roads cut and drove them to see how it looks. Of course the battery was dead. Time to get another battery.
  15. I have read a lot on the Thor 4's and I believe that is the route I am going to go. Had a good size one walk by yesterday in daylight on camera.
