Towing Chevies

Just had to share. Buddy of mine called me this afternoon. Seems he needed some help getting his "work" truck to the GM dealership for a little TLC...

Once again, Ford to the rescue. Luckily he only lives about 6 blocks from the dealership.

Actually he was trying to mess with me once we hit the highway. Kept trying to use his brakes to make me work a bit more. So I had a little fun by thowing it in 4HI and trouncing on it up to about 40mph...

He didn't do that again.

Something electrical I think. Possibly a problem with the anti theft. Every light on the dash is on. Has a new battery, cranks easily but no start. It's an 02-03 half ton with about 200k on it. Gets driven LOTS every day...
