Of course had I not caught the two leaking radiators you never know? I think this proves if you watch it like a 90 year old aunt with pheumonia there is a chance that other folks will enjoy the high miles that I have.

Mayday, mayday, the cab is filling with smoke, oil on the windscreen, water in fuel, overheating, oil pressure dropping, tell my wife I love her.

Then Ford denies the warranty because you were driving on a cloudy day!

I firmly believe my 08 would still be running if I hadn't of done my John Force impression and if I still had it

I must admit that I'm amazed at what these trucks will do when pushed to the limit. 7000 lbs running twelves is insane. That proves the 6.4 is sturdy as hell. The problem is the regen slowly grinding the motor down with thinned out oil. Bad design there. That's the beauty of the Rolls Royce Viper motors in my jets. They are a total loss set up. They never recirculate used oil. After the turbine shaft is lubed the oil goes out in the exhaust not back to the tank. Now if you forget to fill the tank, it's deep crap time. Jet engines do not lock up pretty. I bet Quantas is looking at that right now.
