    Beautiful truck. I have a 6.7 ford diesel and I'll be the first to say the Cummins is king!

    Thanks, hard to believe how much more power it has over my 2000 5.9. Huge difference but it has 250,000 miles on it.

    I put on a tailgate ladder this morning, makes it a lot easier getting in and out. my winch and mount should be here next week.

    Depends on who's looking for me.....and why.

    My father was always a Ford pick-up guy. When the new body style came out in 1980, he about had a heart attack.

    He said the new body style lost all of it's soul. I tended to agree with him.

    Don't know about the truck having a soul, all I need it to do is pull what I want and haul what I need and wallow in the mud a bit. and it has done all that already.

    I dig the old guy step on the tailgate. After twenty some odd years of jumping off the backs of trucks, I cringe at even hopping out of a pickup bed today. Also, I like the sneakers.

    It does work rather nicely. for 40 bucks it was worth it.
