        Still running around in it hauling mowers and mowing grass. It died on us the other day when we were headed home. Like it ran out of gas. Rolled into a parking lot, popped the hood, look around, got back in, fired right up and we drove it home. Strange. Fuel filter probably needs to be replaced. It is one of the one's that is made into the bottom of the fuel pump and is sort of a PITA to get to so I have been putting it off. haha

        The boys love the vent windows. Especially when it's 95 degrees outside!

        I think I am going to pick up a new transmission modulator. The trans has a tendency to shift real early and quick and the one that is in it is not the adjustable kind.

            Stopped by my friend's house to get my welder. Seemed like a good photo op.

              Looks great!! Jay at broader performance told me that the black stripe modulator has the smallest diaphragm and reacts the quickest to throttle input. And he seems to know his c6 trans very well! It make the old Lincoln shift MUCH better at medium throttle. At light throttle...it still stacks the shifts. Definitely cheap enough and worth the effort!

                Yes he does. I have a Broader vb in the Mustang and it has been excellent. The black one is what I planned to use.

                      It's a very nice truck. 302 and is currently getting a 5 speed to make it more user friendly. It was a 3 on the tree, that lost 2nd, so it was a 1-3 on the tree. It's pretty much a drive anywhere anytime truck and he drove it on the Power Tour last year.
