Well today I hauled my buddys (Marker99) truck out so he could work on putting a new clutch in this weekend, then after that my other buddy called and said he thinks he just blew a head gasket. He has a 2004 6.0 with 49k on it and today he was coming down a mountain and he said it over heated then started blowing white smoke. Im assuming it was the head gasket what do you guys think? Sucks too because his warrenty just ran out last month and he just had the egr cooler replaced before that. And he doesnt even have a chip in it :dunno:

Here are some pics of me hauling Marker99 out.... then my pappy pulled it off the trailer with the IH.

Cool pics. If its blowing white smoke its probably the egr cooler. Do you know if they replaced the oil cooler when the egr went out?

yeah the trailer actually belonged to my buddy that has the 04 that i mentioned, now he wants me to tow his truck to the shop, but he he has an ext cab long bed so i dont think the trailer will be long enough. the trailer is acually built rather heavy just not quite long enough

Bummer bout the Fords.

That supercab's wheelbase is only 21 inches longer than that reg cab's wheelbase. It'll probably be close but looks like it'll make it.
