I know it's offtopic, but I just had to show off my new love and addition to my stable--my 2002 F-250 PowerStroke. I've had it just over a week and so far have at least four modifications on it. A few more are planned by the time I leave for the Grand National in two months. Here's a link to some pics:

I know how you feel....I don't know what I'd do without my truck. Only have a Ranger for now, but when the kids get a little bigger I'll go with the F150 4 door.

I kind of thought that's what you might have been talking about. Very, nice. Boy, I envy you. You could pull a house with one of those(or a car to the track). :)

Uh, it's not a car by any means, and it's a heck of a lot of fun to drive--pure power.

Nice ride. What's the color on that , it looks an awful lot like the mineral-gray that they have available on the Mustang...
An obvious choice for an archaeologist. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif..

It's called Dark Shadow Grey, and it does look like Mineral Gray, which I really like on the Mustangs. I wanted a color that would be different yet would look good with my trailer. We'll be adding some color stripes along the bottom of the sides to match my trailer. Don't know if we'll get it done before the Grand National, but hopefully.

I've seen a lot of Powerstrokes putting realestate between them and the "other brand" when it comes to pulling on hills. I've heard nothing but good things. Enjoy.
You by chance heading up this direction for the Mustang Roundup in July?(Washington)

Wow Laurie, that's a classy looking ride. You named it Shadow? Good choice! It's gonna' be a lot nicer to do miles with the trailer now, a good tow rig makes a huge difference!

You're stylin now girl............... *G*.

I've been pulling with my company's F-150, which doesn't like steep hills and averages less than 7 mpg. It's a great truck, but it really was working beyond its means pulling my enclosed trailer. My friends pull with F250s like mine so I know how well these trucks do.

Sorry, can't make the Roundup this year. Maybe next year I can drive Trouble up there. Now that would be fun!

It was very close, the truck was delivered to the dealership a week ahead of time on Thursday, June 6--which was the date and day I picked up my Mustang and Bronco. I had to wait until Saturday to pick up my truck, on 6-8, which is cool, too. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

For right now, the truck is named Shadow. I'll let it name itself, just like my other vehicles did. It almost was named this weekend when we were putting the pillar gauges in but the names weren't repeatable in public. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
