Hard to hold back, huh? lol

I typed a reply, canceled it. Turns out, he is just an idiot.

I don't know about how things work in Canaduh, but I have several friends in law enforcement in Oregon that are pretty smart guys and make a good living. It is VERY tough (near impossible) to get on with the PD at home without a college degree, for what it's worth.
I wonder how difficult it is to get into "carpenter school"...?

maybe in your province, here they make good coin. OPP and mounties start at what 60K? i got a buddy making 100K+ on a rez. he's native and it's tax free. if he was off the rez in a city he'd be comparable to a city guy making 80-90K.

he's told me about guys who do traffic watching at a construction zone. they make sure your not speeding going into the zone. they make close to 50 an hour.

also, they're finding out that the university guys who score 90% are not becoming good cops. too much book smart and not enough street smarts.

personally i'd rather be alive and graduated with a 80 in community college over the university degree and 6' under.

lol. I was thinking about it as well, but I decided the vacation is not worth it lol.

I will say I have 4 friends who are officers (2 of which are in richmond, va which is a ruff part of town). Some of the stories they have told me are rediculous. I will support them 100% like I do with the military.

btw, my 2 friends who are richmond police BOTH went to VCU for 4 years, and went to
police academy for a year.

WRONG!!!! lol here we have something called CARFAX...everytime a vehicle goes in for as much as an oil change (as long as its a nationly recogonized) it goes on a lil thing called a NVH (National VIN History report). I used to run them all the time when i worked for a car dealership......anything done as far as a service or BODY SHOP repairs it will show up......and some states, you are requred by law to disclose any body or paint work before you sell it.

Nice, I never knew that's how that worked exactly. Good information to know.

yea, we have carfax here 2, but people are not required to tell everything about what happen to their vehicule. and , well here at least, carfax is not use more then that... i guess usa is more strict with that...but what happen when some 1 crash it or blow something, and repair it himself, i guess not every 1 who do some body work on cars report it to carfax...a lot of people do oil change in their driveway, im 100 percent positive not all of them report it to carfax.. he could find a garage and make sure they dont report it...

No one reports private repairs to carfax. I got a friend that's a painter at a body shop and he said the shop itself doesn't report anything to carfax. He said only the insurance company does. So even if you had the shop repair your vehicle but kept insurance out of the mix, it would not show on carfax.

I'm sure not all body shops are like this, but just something to think about.

Or if Geico gets a hold of a car they are often too lazy to report anything. lol
Someone with Geico hit us and Geico totaled our car. Several months later I find out that I had taxes due on it, never paid. The company that bought it from a yard and fixed it couldn't get the title because it was never processed. I finally got it for them (came back clean) and transferred it. The buyer knew it was a total but it's probably out there with a clean title.

I have bought at least two cars in the past that have had front ends painted, missing plastic trim pieces in the front, etc, all signs of an accident and the carfax was clean on those too.

thats what i thought, here it is the same, the only way you can get a rebuilt title is when insurance paid for the total car price....thx for confirming

So it is definitely totaled.. They had the repairs up to $10,000 and that's not including the diminished value law here in Georgia. I went and looked at an 04 fx4 f150 Sunday that is damn sweet.. Here's a couple pics.









It has a 6" procomp lift with 20" moto metals and 35x13.50 mickey thompson ATZs, black leather, and a sunroof! It has a good bit of miles, but the motor sounds good and it shifts perfectly. The only flaw is a crack in the windshield and the wore out brakes, which shouldn't be hard fixes. I'm hoping the insurance gets back to me soon so I can pick it up this weekend!

Just be careful 04's have some issues. Do you know if the plugs have been changed on it yet? If not that could become and expensive issue. I'd try and go with something a little newer. It's a nice truck though.

He said they were changed when it was serviced at 60k. What other issues are common with them? It has 120k miles btw.

Unless he has PROOF that they were changed, then no way Jose. Even if he does have proof, I'd change them again and use anti-seize LIBERALLY.

F150 looks pretty good, but im not up to date on the issues with them. When you sell those wheels and tires are you interested in separating?

I think you should keep your buying options open. Let me find you a truck to buy here in Illinois where they're cheap, you come up to buy it, bring those wheels for me, and we'll call it even. Cherry on top here - I'll even add $100 to the deal!! lol

Moto, nice SCREW...but as other's have said. There were issues with 04-07's. Those year's have a problem with plugs snapping off before you get them out of the heads. And it can get really expensive if they do snap off. Just check to see if they have been changed out yet. If it's 120,000 on it, it should have been done already.
