    Thumbs Up Show & Tell Time

    All of us like looking at pictures of trucks and forklifts.
    And Hey! I like showing off!!
    A match made in heaven.










    It is a 2016 Ford F-550, 19500# GVW, FWD, 6.7L Diesel V8, 6 speed Auto

    We will be mounting a 17' Intercontinental Truck Body aluminum bed, boxes and hitch soon.

    I'll post some more fun pictures as they come about.
    I have exactly ONE more hive than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond dispute!

    Nice! Don't drive that more than is absolutely necessary or tape some cardboard on the back window till you get a bed on. I drove one a couple hundred miles like that and ended up shattering mine. I called the dealer and they said "too bad, so sad".

    Congratulations. What color do they call that one? Some kind of grey? Looks like you only have one fuel tank?

    I got a 450 a couple of days before Xmas. I like it alright, I guess. I was expecting it to feel like my 2005. In some ways it's better, but in little ways it's not. The cab feels smaller and the dashboard seems less user friendly. The back of the middle seat is harder to get down. Don't try it while driving. I liked my dashboard cup holders. There aren't any in the newer models.

    I like the pickup of the automatic. The fuel economy is better. I think it varies more, now that I have a dashboard readout that tells me what the mpg is.

    Your truck is going to tell you when your DEF tank is half empty and then, if you haven't refilled it, it will tell you that you have 500 miles to address the situation. If you don't deal with it you will loose power. Maybe you knew that already. The tank holds 5 gallons. The boxes that the fluid come in are 2 1/2 gallons.

    I like the truck telling me when it's time to get an oil change. Mine told me at about 7500 miles, the first time. Haven't put another 7000 miles on it again yet.

    I hope you continue to like yours. Looking forward to seeing the bed and the door panel logos.

    Thank you for the great tip.
    I thought about it on and off last night.
    It's one thing to smash your rear window out or get a bunch of rock chips on the back of your new truck.
    It's another thing to throw a rock and smash someone else's out or hurt someone.
    I always try to keep the fact in mind that we have Federal Motor Authority (DOT) and take that seriously.

    So I was supposed to load haying equipment on tractors today but we had a severe lightening warning and some pretty heavy rain roll in.
    This just took minutes to throw together to play it safe.

    I just hope the truck can handle all of that extra weight



    Thanks again, Jim.
    Nobody needs extra, needless problems.

    They did on mine too which protects the vehicles behind but offers no protection to your own truck from a rock slung over the top of the tire. It was a real mess and in the winter no less, I just bundled up and hoped another one didn't hit me in the back of the head.

    Good guess!
    We gave our '99 that name due to the fact that it had so many cool features.
    Ezy Loader, Detroit Locker locking rear axle, FWD, ect...
    Kind of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang of bee trucks!
    Unreal to think it is already 17 years old.
