You ain't kidding about that. I did some wiring and put a new steer axle under that truck, not long after he bought it in January.

I ran them on my dodge since 2005. I've had a lust for them since I was a kid going to car shows in the early 90's.

I thought the sensor for the boost and high end fuel ran over 100 psi. Most of their hardware back then was vdo.

What I was told last year in an email from them. “Concerning the fuel pressure we do not have a pressure sensor that is rated over 100psi that is also rated for use with fuel”.

In the shop today. Antenna leaning forward, shifter extension that you hit yourself in the head to put it in low, and last no swan but a chrome duck on the hood.

I'm due for a new seat, what's everyone like? I've had legacy's and was far from impressed and a few sears which were nice when they were new but didn't seem to last very long. How are the bostroms with the Serta foam?

Had to load at a rodeo arena the other night, chute was so close to the fence that the single axle with a 40’ couldn’t even hit it straight. Had to make two trips to load me. Sorry guys but I’m a Pete driver with the window chops... but that means no air in the seat on the floor! Also I do like purple

Also ended up buying a fully aluminum 48’. 98 model. I’m no rich man so having to slowly build up

So, driving in a truck in a metropolitan area is a new thing for me. Picked up two Westerns from Rogers in Nashville.

Your are seriously blaming an engine for problems that the owner wouldn’t fix?

It sure wasn’t the engines fault.
