Gee A.W. with all that room to the side why wouldn't you just go around that rock? That just looks painful as heck for your truck.

I could geet the new mill put together with different heads, but I'd have to switch pistons, headers,intake, etc...to 18* stuff, the heads I'm waiting on are still 23* and will flow at least as much as the typical 18* stuff does now..so I'll wait another year.

I got rid of the 95 F150 for the F350. That was the best damn truck I ever owned, thing did'nt owe me a nickel, did the work of a 1T most the time and kept pluggin away

I stared at it for a long time also and didn't see anything. He's probably going to tell you something stupid like Chevrolet is spelled F O R D or something.

I put the smiley in... It means it was a joke.

However a guy I used to work for had some new magnets made that were supposed to say "Superior Building" However after a few days of driving around his son says "why does it say Superior BULDING?" oops...

I mailed out 100 new brochures me and my wife made. We read over it all and liked it and mailed them out. I printed another 25 to carry around with me in my clipboard and I was going to put them in a box on my trailer. I showed them to a buddy of mine and 3 secs later he says "Hey you spelled visit "vsit". No wonder nobody called me from those 100 brochures I guess spelling errors do not go well with my tag line about perfection.
