Put some LED bulbs in the autometer gauges.

They are much brighter and I can read the gauge face easier now.

Paid all of 12 dollars on eBay. Autometer wants 12 bucks per bulb.

I now need to fix a dipstick oil leak. Slight leak but I hate leaks.

Changed my oil yesterday night and found out the output for my bypass oil filter is plumbed into the inspection hole to see if I have Powdered metal or forged rods...

Ive been hauling this around to different shows.

Trailer: 3k lbs
Farmall H: 5k lbs
Twin Simplicity 728s: ~1k lbs
Simplicity Landlord: 1k lbs
Various items in the bed (tractor weights, 25 gallons of gas, 24 gallons of water, various camping items): 1.5k lbs

The 7.3 handled it without any issues.

Not pictured: Also had to retrieve my 24ft camper and haul the Allis Chalmers C. I may have put over 1k miles on the truck in a week just transporting toys

The search function is a wonderful thing. Had to put a new trailer plug on my trailer. Used the F350 to test it and make sure every thing work. Drove the truck to run some errands this morning to. After wiring the trailer I parked the truck. A couple hours later I went out to start it and no crank. All lights,buzzers and heard fuel pump run. Did a search on the site, went out and turned the key on and connected the two terminals together on the solenoid and it fired rite up. So now to get a new one. At least it's an easy fix and it did it at home.

Wheels to couple ratio looks off or maybe that's just the angle of the cam? Great looking toys on there too!

Thanks! I wish I could haul them all. My priority in recent years is to get the kids (3 year old girl, 4 year old boy) into the Ag-life so they have twin mowers of their own to show off and drive. My son started pulling this year (Simplicity Landlord on the rear of the trailer) and while he didnt do too well (42ft at that particular show), I'm just happy he wanted to get out there and play!

The truck is coupled but the tongue is jacked to minimize movement upon loading. The rear sagged a little once ready to go.

Pressed the glass back in the passenger side mirror again. Went inside and ordered couple 08 mirrors. Need to decide on a double din radio. Mine takes random moments of up and down volume, skipping stations, and the cd player has not worked in some time. Any thoughts on a double din?

I like pioneers- you can get a nice Bluetooth one on amazon. Can't be specific on model b/c you'll just have to con on there and read the reviews. I got the single din bt and it's been great for years. Works very well with the phone feature for wireless convos.
