I think you keep buying Fords because you keep searching for a quality tow rig. If you keep buying Fords, you will continue to search.









looks good BTW.

But this one is of my more favorite trucks you have owned so far..based on comfort. The off-the-lot F150 being the favorite.

We design and build our own transmissions. As a trans engineer, I like that, so does my bank account.

I'm trying to find stock injectors for the 94 so I can move the 160cc injectors into the 99, but that isnt working out so hot.
