A little off...I saw a banner ad asking us to "Help Michelle wish Barack a happy father's day"

I throw up in my mouth a little every time I see what she calls a face...

And now all of a sudden everything is underlined...

Dont you just love a loose turdlet seat ? Sit down and move a bit and it slides off to one side , feels like your going to fall off lol

A few more hours and Im off to the beach with the kids for their first beach trip .

Should I take the tahoe or the f350 ? Im pulling the pontoon boat down and diesel is 3.79 and reg is 3.29 . The towahoe gets about 10-12 mpg and will only pull it about 65 , the 350 will roll on with but i dont know the mpg on it
92 7.3 idi non turbo 4 door long bed 2 wheel drive , anyone care to take a guess ?

Moved in with a chick to find most of her bathroom floor was rotten; the toilet was basically perched on a reeeeeally stout pipe until we undertook some repairs. I hit it at speed once (bad mushroom sammich); the whole thing leaned then rocked back solidly.

My guess is 8.

Besides have you ever pulled a DPF? Pain in the a$$... And they're heavy. And sometimes you ask a driver when three last time they ran regen was and you get a blank stare... That's never good. The heat is bad for the engines too... Just a bad idea.

I have an early 90s Toyota. Everything has a vacuum line going to it.
Whats wrong with Ford? My Grandpa has a Ford tractor from the late 50s-early 60s that still runs and sees a lot of use. He's currently restoring another Ford tractor that is a little bit older. I believe they're both gas though.

I've deleted more than a few on light duty( up to 1 ton) trucks. Took an 08 f350 from 10 mpg to 22 mpg on the highway. They suck bad! And you're right they weigh a lot too!!!!

I tried to break a few ribs with one when we first started changing them. I really didn't think they would be that heavy. I can bench 150 pounds but I took the filter with the converter and the two pieces on the ends out all at once, apparently it weighs more than 150 pounds....
