    its probably either something in the glow plug system or your cam position sensor which is a cheap simple fix. Also check to make sure the oil level is right because that affects starting too. If it was running good before then it shouldnt be anything too costly. Also maybe check your connections on the batteries

    after replacing the cam sensor and glow plug relay and still not starting, we ended up looking at all the wiring harnesses on the motor. Ended up finding the wiring harness that comes out from under the drivers side battery and runs up near the valve cover was chaffing the valve cover with 3 exposed wires, split the wires wrapped them in electrical tape and resecured the harness and she fired right up, now have an exhaust leak to find sounds like a manifold gasket.

    that truck looks beautiful, I can't believe you had the doors lettered! I'm going to pick a newer truck on tuesday and i'm not putting anything on the doors. or anywhere on the paint I'm gonna get the back window lettered. the truck is a 2010 f350 crew cab short bed with platinum white metallic paint 6.4 diesel fx4 lariat. and I can't see putting any logo's or lettering on anywhere on the truck the back window is the only reasonable location for me, and its a got navigation and the whole screen becomes the back up camera when you put the truck in reverse. so seeing out the back window is really not a concern, but anyways you truck looks super clean, hope it continues to serve you well!

    Heres the thing, I didn't really want to letter the body but I think it draws more attention than the backwindow decals, i'm trying to build a brand that people notice in town and being that its a very notciceable truck by its looks I figured why not have people see my logo while checking out the truck. I hear ya though its tough to letter up a new vehicle, I've been doing this since 03 and this is the first time I've ever lettered a truck.

    I agree you are correct. I'm trying to do the same but I don't think my 97 ford sticks out enough, the truck i'm buying will but i really don't know that i want to letter the body, I think i only feel comfortable lettering the back window.

    Whats the big deal? Its not paint, take it off and buff it if you want to sell it. If you leave it on for 10 years and it shadows the paint who cares. Its been a work truck for 10 years anyway
