having truck problems......

looking for advice here
I got a LIST of problems
1. the black skinny thing on the right makes the truck THRUST forward when you put it to the floor, and even causes a heavy cloud of black smoke sometimes

2. if you do the same to the fatter black thing next to it...you gotta peel yourself off the steering wheel

3. I bought the truck cause it was my favorite color and to haul my motorcycle around....well, the color hasn't changed, but I cant figure out how to get my bike out of the back once me and a buddy got it up there.

4. I'm afraid of heights....so I'm too scared to drive my truck.

What do I do????

heres a picture of my motorcycle situation...we got it up there, but like I said, I'm afraid of heights and not sure what to do!

DON'T STUD THE TIRES !!!!!! I tried it used one of those DIY kits from Home Depot and now they are flat. But, it is only on the bottoms. So, I can't drive it until I can get them flipped over.

The loading docks in the background look perfect for loading a bike!

is studding the tires what everyone keeps referring to me needing head studs???
I wanna do this right.


ALSO...I went by O'Rielly's and told em I had a 2005 F250 and I wanted spark plugs and wires for a tune up....they sold em to me and I went home. I cant for the life of me find the plugs OR wires!

My truck makes an aweful rattle too...I think I'm gonna do a total overhaul, you know everything from brakelight fluid to cleaning the carbs! How long do you think it will take me....I'm not gonna waste more than 30 minutes to do it, otherwise I'll just pay the dealer!

There is a custom lift that actually lifts your bed off the frame and sits it on the ground behind the truck, but I can't find it anywhere. Maybe someone will chme in and get the info on here. Nice truck and nice bike by the way!!
