God only knows how many times I have done that , even managed to get a mazada mx3 to do it at a 150mph with no wheels on it , put it in 5th , floored it , hit 150 and then slammed it in reverse and it was a manual .

It's an F150. Got it's first oil change and first transmission swap at the same time. Now there goes the second. Here's the damn trailer and mower I'm pulling...

Dude, my freaking CAR is rated to pull this load.

No, I don't want another FERD. I was raised a FERD man, but for all you can get with your money at a FERD dealership, FERD can kiss my ass. Way too much damn money for this piece of SH*T, and that goes for almost every FERD truck I've used built after '95-'96.

FU*K A FERD. I don't even want their older junk any more. They can take their high horse named "no bailout" straight to a Mexican glue factory, right next to the Mexican factories where such a large percentage of their components are made. FU*K them. Piece of ****.

Since you shouldn't be paying for another transmission now anyways call corporate and demand that they give you a new transmission this time. Tell them about the lost wages and time you've had to deal with on both transmissions. Don't deal with the dealership. They'll probably just try to stick you with another refurb and charge you for something.

In my neck of the woods we mostly use f250's or Chevy 2500's for towing, hauling or plowing snow duties.

It's ****ty that your truck is burning up the trannys so quickly. I imagine you have what under 5,000 on the truck?

They claim it's not a refurb. It's not my truck, I'm not losing wages... This really is no skin off my back at all, other than an aggravation. They can't charge me for anything at all... Not my bill to pay.

Payback- it CAN be fun!

Recalling the headaches that youngest daughter inflicted by being a typical teenager (several years ago).

This afternoon, at 2 pm, have wedding rehearsal with her. After I hand the bride over to the groom, I go sit. About 15 feet behind the couple. With them facing the other way.

In my shirt pocket- payback.

A duck call.

*..let him speak now, or forever hold his QUACK!"

Got some sort of poisoning goin on. Either good or alcohol but I didn't drink very much.

Puked 7 times since 1000. On my way to the new house for the inspection. Already half hour late and half hour out. Got a bag o puke in my lap.

Glorious day...

I can put junk together meticulously, but it will still be junk. Corporate cost savings strike again.
