Silly Boys, Trucks are for Girls!

Hello everyone! I figured I'd come here to learn a thing or two about diesel trucks!

I've had this truck (2000 F350) for almost a year now. I bought it off a gentleman I worked with on the pipeline who was going to retire after that job. The price was really right for it so I went for it. I've never owned a diesel before, so this is my first. I will admit I know next to nothing about them and at this point am scrambling to find all the knowledge I can to take the best care of it. I had asked some questions about it before I bought it but still have quite a bit more to ask, the gentleman who owned it before me passed a few months after he retired the end of last year and I no longer have him to call up. He taught me a lot not just about pipeline but a little about life too. The truck means a lot to me and I want it to last a long time. Which is why I am here! He took immaculate care of it, and I can actually hear him yelling at me right now about the dog hair on the seats!

Anyways! A little about me:
I am your average, happy go lucky lady that likes to joke and have a good time. I live in the good ole' state of Maine and have an American Bulldog named Moose. I work as a laborer in construction or on the natural gas pipeline. I have been traveling to different states the past couple years for work. My dream job, and something I am aspiring to be, is a heavy equipment operator. I work A LOT, I am happiest working I think, I love my job, love the people I get to meet on my crews. They tell me I am a 'Lady with the vocabulary of a well educated sailor'. My nickname on the job is Sun Drop and I even have a wicked cool air brushed tie dye hard hat with it on it!

Here are some truck pictures:
It needs a bath but I had just realized I had never taken pictures of it before! So ran down and took it today.


When you have a big drooly dog you need some decent seat covers for sure! Course the seats in this truck prevent me from buying any of those dog hammock thingies because there is nothing to attach them too! Blah!


Here is my handsome dog


And a work picture:

Wasn't even worried about it - Just pulled that out of your post since I didn't see you're given name. All good here!
