Yeah I had those on order the minute I got home from picking it up, black SD = mandatory Harley's, lol. Got a few ideas for a grille to tie things together a bit nicer, but haven't made a final choice yet. (still wish I could have a clean OBS . . )

I think almost every superduty does get the crap kicked out of it until it no longer moves... then someone fixes it and does it all over again. haha

Nice, we've had 9600 JD stuck 4 times this year, still have a couple hundred acres of hard wheat to get off but to much rain and where suppose to get another 1or 2inches by saturday. Where going to lease another combine and get grain cart also, cause we still have 300 arces of Flowers also and 100 of flax to get off. To much rain, going to start selling lake front property on some of our sloughs I think lol

Thanks. They're pretty fun and comfortable to run, air ride seats, A/C, quiet cab, Sirius radio w/ CD/MP3 player and basically completely finger & hand controlled.

Hah! Not this time, I have yanked out the semi's and smaller 4wd tractor w/ sprayer on when they weren't sunk too badly. It'll pull pretty hard with these Firestone M/T's.

I like it so far, I will admit I sometimes wish I went with an auto trans sometimes, as it makes pulling things out of the mud a bit of a challenge occasionally, and it's geared so low I'm in 4th (5th of 6 speeds) by 30mph, so cruisin' around town does take it's toll on the body (and clutch).

Nice F250-HD for sale locally . . . that black leather interior looks amazing:

Either the clutch hydraulics (Master/Slave Cylinder) or the actual clutch itself.

To add insult to injury the tow-truck was a Dodge!

Got a 6-spd for reliability, hope this is the last of major failures.

Your truck is going to keep having major failures until those mud flaps are gone.

Got a new master/slave system. The new slave is screwed in multiple ways, plus I think the clutch fork hasn't come back all the way/hung up meaning I'll have to drop the trans and do the clutch far earlier than I hoped, just after I dropped a few thousand on a bike. Wonderful.

Really wishing I got a nice Outlaw Edition F150 instead. May start looking again.

Ordered my clutch from ValAir, arrived in 6 days from Texas, couldn't be happier. Same day ordered some other stuff I needed, and a pilot bushing to do the clutch the same day I ordered the clutch. Took 2 weeks to come from California. Upon arrival, there is no pilot bushing or my Warn hubs . . .

By the time I get all of this time consuming **** figured out I'll be black listed and on a few terrorist watch lists. What a ****ing crock.

Lesson learned: ValAir is a great company for clutches. USPS is a terrible company and Riff-Raff will never get my money again.

Edit - Thankfully I'm fortunate enough to have a 2nd(3rd) vehicle, otherwise I'd be up the creek for the last month.
