Wood's Powerstroke I actually drove my truck this past weekend. The wife and I drove Clifford over 100 miles round trip to get a recliner. Man, I love my truck. New recliner is pretty good, too

Yes, it's a pull thru but it was kinda horseshoe shaped, made for unhooking at a angle. It's a local State Park called Don Carter, it's fairly new 5-6 years old.

Recommendations?
Everywhere I've read says Denso starters are the way to go for strength and durability. [email protected] sells them. They are a bit pricey, but it's not something I want to do every couple years if you know what I mean.

JustinOOO9 Took the truck and trailer to local landfill. Old appliances, cabinets, countertops, and enough wood/trim, floor etc material to fill the truck bed and little tandem utility trailer for the side by side hahaha.

Also had to use the snowblower and shovel to clear 3ft high snow just to get the trailer ugh. Thankfully no more snowstorms on the radar but man the snow was so packed on the trailer I couldn’t even lower it with the trailer jack off the ground for a bit.

Did you put the hydra on? Does it seem more powerful than the old motor ?

It comes with a 2 year, unlimited mile warranty. It definitely runs a lot better, but I am taking it easy for now for the break-in period. It goes back to the shop tomorrow for the 500-mile oil change and for them to check and make sure everything sealed up, all bolts still tight, etc.

I put the hydra on a couple years ago. Will keep it at stock for a while until after I feel comfortable enough knowing the new sounds and feels of the engine and trans. I don't think it affects the warranty, but may wait until after the warranty period to put it on anything other than stock. After the checkup, I will put the engine through some more tests.
