This was the scene yesterday morning. Snowmageddon 2023!
It didnt last.
Anyways, i hit the road and made if halfway to my destination, when i blew the cooler line for the transmission.
It was rough, we lost about 8 qts of fluid, and fast. We were sitting at a traffic light, and when the light turned green, the truck wouldnt go! Thankfully there was a Turkey Hill across the street, so i wandered over, grabbed a couple quarts of oil and dumped em down the dipstick so i could get the truck off the road. Found the leak, got lucky and was able to shorten the hose and put it back together. With that fixed we resumed our trip, which was to go pick up this:
Home Depot truck!
Its a 2008 F350. 2wd 5.4l with 305,000 miles on the clock! Picked it up for cheap because realistically aside from the bed, the truck isnt really worth much.
All i really care about is the bed, and its in pretty good shape overall. Picked the truck up for less than the cost of an aluminum flatbed, so im calling it a win!
This bed will look really nice on the back of the '96 F250...
