days as an impostor are nearly over

Well, the airfare is bought and the trip is planned. I have been on the forum here for 4 months as a Superduty owner - Payed for my King Ranch back on the 8th of December. This Thursday night will be my first time behind the wheel of a Ford. I pick the truck up in Knoxville - drive to Texas to pick up a pair of tandem dual goosenecks - then on to Des Moines IA to pick up a 45 KVA generator and hope to be back to Alberta by Sunday. (3000 miles planned for 3 days of driving - that Ford better be comfy) Weight in tow should be around 19,000 lbs - (initially I was planning for allot more weight but this should get her broke in.)

What you have 140 post and you haven't even drove the truck. Good luck on the long haul I guess that's why you was worried about the little fuel tank.
