Default Took it for a drive...

Gave it a wash, vacuumed the interior. Took a drive from Bremerton to Sequim Washington, about 120 miles roundtrip. Had dinner at the HWY 101 diner (50's theme). Truck sat for a while and wanted to stretch its legs a bit. Performed well. Always fun to drive. The big gas bill, not so fun. But I won $200 at the 7 Cedars Casino during the trip so I paid for my gas!

Castrol edge Syntec and a Mobil one filter. Truck purrs like a kitten this morning and mileage seemed to improve, will be keeping an eye on that

My parent's drove the truck up here so I could put it in the shop for the rear axle after sitting for a month. The ac isn't working either.

I love this truck, but I hate it at the same time. Least reliable vehicle I've owned.

Sat I changed the oil/filter and greased the bushings.
Today I drove it 400 miles to a jobsite. Still waiting on front hubs to come in.

STROBES! And no they aren't just for "looks", they are for official business.

The video looked fine on my phone- I guess the compression messed up the sync of the strobes.

Picked up my diesel from the tranny shop for the second warranty visit (both for the new solenoid valve). This time I insisted on being present when it arrived via Fed-ex., now it's shifting correctly, no longer short shifting between 2nd & 3rd and can no longer rack a load! Back on the clock. In T/H 12345 not 1245 R...
