So you say a buddies shop, what does cab corners/ rockers cost to replace, can you ask ur friend for a ballpark if you arent paying retail? Just curious what that job would cost on a regular day?

5 days ago I installed the repaired FICM from BPD and I figured I might as well change out my FICM relay as it's probably the original. My Genuine OEM Ford Part #: F8OZ-14N089-AA arrived today. While comparing the two, I saw what I'm guessing is the date of manufacture; old one says 06125 and new one says 19212 - probably the year and the day of the year. Am I right?

He said normally about 3000-3500 for inner and outer rockers and cab corners. He likes to use the replacement inner rockers and extended cab corners but has another guy bend one piece outer rockers out of a litter thicker material. Less seams and welding needed so should last longer.

17 year old Numb nutzs (mini me) went into mud last night knowing the 4x4 doesn't work. It shut down and would not start and that's how they left it at last night. Started this morning and he almost got it out, died and would not start again. Pulled it out with my 6.7 (ridgrapplers griped flawlessly). Gave it a shot of ether started and headed home. Died twice on the way home when he stopped at red lights. Little ether both times and maid it home. Kids need to learn how to 4x4 correctly, work on and maintain their (my) truck. Looks like ipr with forscan but I'm going to check a few more things.

Completed headgasket job on my 07! No better feeling than watchin that ICP hit 500psi and hear her roar to life. O-ringed heads with OEM gaskets. Re-sealed high pressure system. Original injectors still strong at 185,000km, top oring was rock hard and brittle. O-ring kits for them good as new. Original STC fitting on pump replaced. Found broken standpipe upon disassembly also. IPR % much lower now lol.

Nothing exciting really, new Motorcraft oil filter and fresh Delo 5W40 synthetic. Noticed a little oil residue around one of the hot side CAC hoses so I repositioned/re-torqued it.

Finally in the process of doing the front cab mounts. Did the rears a couple months ago. Since I have crew cab, I had to loosen the middle mounts. This required removing the back seat, the cargo tray behind the seat, the rear seat belts, the door sill trim pieces and lifting the carpet. I will get some pics uploaded today. I wasn't able to completely finish yesterday.

Check your concentration, if you filled with 50/50 it's probably weak. Even when you pull both block plugs you can only get around 1/2 the water out. Usually best to fill with 3 1/2 gallons of concentrate then top off with distilled. Brave to trust Motorcraft coolant after the damn gold fiasco, I trust and recommend most of their brand name parts but I'll use what the engine manufacturer recommends Cat EC-1 ELC
