You and I and everyone else in this world knows it may not sell worth a crap. This economy has everyone looking to save what they can, where ever they can and purchasing a large ticket item is not on the savings plan>>..

I'm going to see what I can get one down to and go from there?

cheers

I didn't have any trouble getting my plugs out of my 02 Lightning, it blew them out :twisted:

Now it has the 03 and up P.I. heads on it.

Naw them newer ones dont blow out, but rather when you try and change them they snap off in the damn head.

Get a free head gasket change with tuneup special.....2 grand :twisted: :twisted:

Sorry for my negativity, I'm I tech lol. They look like a damn nice truck.

Jon , I just bought an '08 F150 and I asked about the spark plugs and they told me they should be taken out every 40000 km and new antiseize applied ,will this cure the snapping of problem ?

You can always tell when the boys are pullin plugs on one, you can hear um creak as they come out..............then either a sigh of relief or "^%%$#$#%^&*...........!!!!!!"

Personaly I'd trade it off before i had to put plugs in it.

I appologize for my off topic banter, I'm sure Adam and D's ears burn from time to time.

Hell I just want a red phone straight into Billy's office............. :twisted:

Sorry Lem, its just the cab bolts and spark plugs that get me wound up................ :lol:

I've got a real bad pain in my right shoulder, been that way for about 2 months now, I think all the turbo liftin' has finally took its toll.


My 4 day weekend is over, I gotta get ready to head back to the funhouse, I'm sure all hell has broken loose.
