SparkyF250 I need Jack's help getting the 56" top box up on the rollaway. Damn thing is heavy!
I had to assemble the 5 drawer cart, I got that to replace a home made rollaway I used as a project box, it had a workbench top and I could fill it up with parts as I pulled em off a job. This will be nice to take tools to a job instead of trying to move the big box

6.7ferd Glad to hear. Hope your mini ex parts get there soon.

Pretty good, I have been replacing things all along, probably spent $2500 at Harbor Freight so far. Just got a new 56" toolbox and a 5 drawer cart. Bought 6 of their LED lights to replace the incandescent bulbs and florescent lights I had in there. Creepers, jack stands, drain pans and that kind of stuff. I also placed a big order for replacement parts for my excavator, once that's repaired I can settle with the insurance company. They have been really great so far.

SparkyF250 Drove mine to HF today to replace my toolbox that got scorched in the fire. A 56" cabinet and top box plus their 5 drawer cart fills a short bed right up.
It's been pretty warm last week or so and the rain washed the salt off the road. Forgot how much I like driving this thing. Salt will be back in the next couple of days sadly enough.

Over the last two days, in frigid weather, i did:

Pulled FICM and re-flowed all solder joints. Have a solid 48V now.
Replaced all glow plugs and harnesses.
Blue Spring Mod
Setup OBD-II monitoring in TorquePro app

Without the info on these forums (and elsewhere), this probably would have taken a lot more time and effort.

Thanks again!
How great to read this post, that's what the magic of the internet is all about. I feel sorry for the dudes that say "I don't have a computer". How do they survive???

nitrogen If you are still working on the block heater issue, inspect the cord thoroughly, it is more usually the issue than the heater itself. If they put salt on your roads, wet salt on the end of the plug can transmit enough electricity to trip your GFI breaker. The other issue can be the wires break right next to the cord and it. When that is the issue cut off two inches and get a new plug from your hardware store
