the 00' overheated and leaked fluid. after sitting for 30 minutes it was back to work. it did it a few time durring the storm. the 97' wouldnt move anymore. so we still had 2 trucks going. this was the first storm for the 3rd truck in service so we didnt notice it not being there, but with 24-30" we wish we had it

The oil pan is an expensive fix. One of Fords better ideas ! On a 7.3 you have to pull the engine from the truck to do the pan , which makes it labor intense. Sand it smooth and JB weld it and coat it down with Fluid film . Have seen lots of these. The trans from ford should also come with a 3 yr 100k warranty as long as you also replaced the cooler too.Which adds to the price but for the warranty it makes it worth it.

i wouldnt let ford do either. a private tranny shop did the tranny and beefed it up. it came with a 3yr/36K warranty. dropped it off thursday evening, picked it up friday evening. they had a fleet of plow trucks there. they did my f550 a few years ago as well

we had so much snow 80-something iches so far, ive been sleep deprived and plain stupid! i know my tractor barely fits in the garage to bring firewood in, ad a small hump from snow and guess what, it doesnt fit anymore. new doors are going in on Friday. if that wasnt bad enough, i was openning up a few driveways the other day and had my wife with me. distracted and not paying attention i backed into a pole, crushed my bumper into the bed adn buckled the back corner of my bed. to top it all off, i wasnt even charging, it was a few of my good customers i was trying to do some extras for. im done with snow this year.
