You suck with that fuel mileage...Lol

I didn't do it to my truck, but did it to my work van..I had a compressor tilt and it spilled the oil all over the floor of my work van. Busted my azz the last time the other day...so I put down duplicolor bed armor on the floor. I hope it dries completely by Monday...Lol

Got a headache, bad one, about 2 yesterday...I went to bed about 7 last night...couldn't take it anymore...finally at about 7am it was gone....I hate them dam things

Kinda what maddawg89 said, but with my PHP Hydra I was using my 45hp tow tune, but still that is no where close too the same power and torque output of a newer 6.7L. At one point I was climbing a 8% grade in 2nd gear going about 10-15mph I know my camper sticking weight is just over 8K but I'm willing too say loaded and those sticker weight's being off I bet I'm close too 10K

Don't get me wrong I love my 7.3L and I still miss my first 7.3L but sometimes the idea of a new truck seems nice, but then the idea of a monthly payment wake's me back up too reality.

Thats the main reason that I stay in what i have now, my local ford dealer keeps blowing up my phone about a used 15 dually they have on the lot with all the bells and whistles, but i can't get over the payment, especially going from not having one at all to 500-700 a month. F that

I see what you're saying. I have a new cummins,and while it is a brute,I still love my 7.3...except for the sloppy steering. And to stay on topic,I drained the coolant out of my 7.3 and added five gallons of rotella ELC. AND I lowered my spare tire with ease. I thought for sure it would be seized up.

Have both and there is no comparison but I love the 7.3 all the same. Maybe it's nostalgia. Just finished the stereo install in the excursion. Put Dynamat in my truck and may do the same to the X.

Notice any difference in the Dynamat install before and after?
