Got it handed to me...

02 7.3 , upgrades , well of course , fastest diesel in town ....ummmm NO. Anyway toodling home today after seeing Jack Reacher and notice a 6.4 in the left lane trying to catch up right before we come upon our right hand turn. I throw the blinker on and he jumps from the far left to the far right turn lane with me. 1st indication.....
The next 2 miles of road is two lane stop lights/signs spaced 1/8 mile or so and we happen to be side by side at the second. He romps on it when leaving that light a little bit just to say hello and let me know he wanted to run i guess......2nd indication
Could see he had a small something mounted on the pillar but dont know what it was. We pull to the 4th stop sign side by side again , and well.....i am a guy , its on. We left the stop sign non boosted and were side by side till second gear and then he pulled ahead pretty quick and made a right hand turn .....into THE HIGH SCHOOL PARKING LOT.

So moral of the story , i got hosed in a 7.3 by a teenybopper in a 6.4 that is most likely paid for by Mom and Dad. I thought for 2 seconds about feeling bad about getting beat on then remembered , i have a nice 7.3 with a new motor , its paid for , we work from home , and were at a 12:30 matinee movie on a Thursday after some morning shopping. Sometimes you just have to know when to cut your losses i guess. I did get home to a nice set of smoked recon cab lights waiting on the door step via FedEx though

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

Jack Reacher is a great movie! And a 6.4 is a serious force to be fought. Good story though
