On the way home from picking the Excursion up from Ford after getting new head gaskets. A bike gets behind me and starts revving the engine like most bikes do. Anyways, a ease into the throttle and get it up around 2000 RPM and the truck shutters a little bit and white smoke pours out of the exhaust pipe :bang I covered the guy in white smoke..... he pulls around me and speeds off and I limp back to the Ford dealer. Hopefully they can install the head gasket correctly this time, I didn't have the truck for more than an hour :bang

Believe me, I'm pissed.... and yes, they have to take the body off to do the head gaskets..... again :bang Thank god it's under warranty. I believe the finaly bill would have been just under 4 grand if it wasn't. The truck almost got 70K miles on it and my dad and I are thinking about selling it and maybe getting a cummins or duramax. Not sure yet. This is the second 6.0L powerstroke we've had, my brother drives my dad's old F250 and that almost got 100K on it and we havn't had a single problem with it..... oh well.... :shrug:

o snap........ got to love a power joke
At least Ford didn't build the Power Joke as Dodge built that crap around the Cummins. The best part is when my Power Joke fails I can take the Cummins out of your crappy Dodge and put it in my Ford:eek:wned .

:drinkingbuddies: Me too, me too...I hate all sayings tho, found on road dead is old, first on race day old, Cracked Head Every Valve Rattles Oil Leaks Every Time. Cummaparts, more than one way to skin a cat......Etc they are all stupid if you ask me. Most are probably thought of while they are sitting at the shop waiting for their truck to get out....making themselves feel better with small antics like these sayings. I disaprove of such talk anywhere i go, may it be in school( lot of ford owners like to run their mouth,who just run a simple tune who have never wrenched on their own vehicles) Why i say ford is because thats all the diesels at my highschool, besides me. I usually run the cummins but i will drive the idi because that old thing is just one bad *** truck. All talk and no walk is no way to run. They usually think they are hot cus they blow alota smoke, out their exhaust and up peoples arses.

But hey thats just everyday, my dads idi alone will outrun these newbs....and my cummins. I'm just tired of these stupid sayings! STOP with duracrap, powerjoke, cummapart. Everything lol please.

Back on topic........Update us on how it goes bro!!

Are you sure that much body lift is legal, you might want to check with your local DOT laws but I'm pretty sure he'd get a ticket for driving like that on the street. Heck at least get some bigger tires to fill the wheelwellsLOL . J/K Hopefully this time will work out better for him:Thumbup:

LOL Is that what the kids call it nowadays? Powerstrokin? Gees what ever happened to the chicken?

No, I wouldn't trade in my dodge neither. Once i find a good 79' regcab long bed 4x4 f350 srw ford and a detroit 6v53 or 6v92(big b!tch i know) and get it all together. I'll tell you that dodge will be sitting in the shed for awhile.:damnit
