Pick-up !
« on: September 20, 2012, 11:37:23 AM »
 The old GM made getting a newer truck a whole bunch easier last week. We where on our way back from an auction when it gave up. We had talked about replacing her as the regular cab was a tight fit for the two labs, me and Rene. When it died on the road, not that it can not be fixed, just that even if I do, Rene will not get back in for a long ride .  ::)  Wimine are  funny that way sometimes !! That old GM rode like a steel wheeled wagon and she never did like to climb up into it, (it has a three inch lift kit )
  I did a search online for a 3\4 ton diesel with four doors and came up with this ...



 
Then I went looking for a trailer and found this one ..

 


 

 The two labs really need to learn who has ownership of the pick-up, or they may be trying to tell me somethings here !!!!

Good haul, Marcel.

looks like one of mine even the same color. 7.3 or 6.0?? i have a 7.3 and two 6.0. egr coolers were trouble on the 6.0 so watch for any loss of antifreeze. i deleted the cooler on one truck and will do the other. egr valve should be taken out and cleaned at least once a year.

 Steve, I am sorry about the all French on facebook, it just comes out so naturaly to me when I am on there and all the suroundings are in French, I will try to be more bilangual in the futur. ( just for you)  :-*
 Those labs know what they want, I had them in the back with the seat down and a padded carpet over the steel back of the seats, as soon as I got out and closed the door they where on the front seats with a smile on there face.  :)

Nice ride there bud !

I have a 2001 f350 7.3. I have had great service from this truck, just rolled 200k on it. The 7.3's were the less troublesome of the bunch, but are know oil leakers due to a few inferior o-ring gaskets Navistar put in them. I had a time, but got my leaks controlled.

One of the sites I visit, powerstroke.org, is full of very helpful information on all models of the powerstroke fords. Do yourself a favor and lurk around on that site under the '7.3' page.

You will learn a vast amount of infomation from the guys that have already experienced anything and everything on these motors.

Ironically I too have Labs, 2 black males, father and son , Beaux and Buster, 15 years old and 12. Nothing more loyal than a man's Lab.


Congrats ! 

PS - If you should ever have an issue, I may have already had that one too,,, drop me a line.

 Thanks I will keep that in mind  :P 8)

  I have had, and did alot of miles with a few detroits and had the cumins too but I am new to the powerstroke team, I have many friends that have them and are for the most part very happy with them. Being new I have not yet learned the secret handshake, in time I am sure I will aquire this knowledge  :P

I thought the secret hand shake was a Chevy thing?  ;D
First thing you want to do is put the tail gate down and back into a 6 inch tree. Second is,use the same tree, run the drivers side,can be just the cab or just the box or the whole side if you want,into the side of the tree. Than you won't have to worry about putting a dent into that nice looking truck. You are welcome.  :D
I see a Ford that they did the tail gate thing to in town. But the tail gate was not down. Bumper and all has about a 6 inch indention in it.
