    Throttle Body Injection. It's Electronic Fuel Injection/Throttle Body. Same as on my F250, but on a 460 instead of a 351.

    Yep. That's what is next :) Some simulators for the wheels, eventually a paint job and new wood, fix the bumper, etc.

    Hey, Frankenscag's moving up in the world! Congratulations on the new truck. I think those 1-ton trucks are great-very versatile. Good luck,

    Yep. It's been good about everything but gas. about 7.6 mpg! That's about 2/3 with trailer, 1/3 w/o, and all of it in town. From what I hear, it could be worse in a 460 though. I am gonna try to tweak a bit more out of it if I can. Tonight I put on a single 3" pipe from the catalytic converter straight back 4' then with a turn-down. Sounds better and seems to have a slight improvement in power up hill with trailer (accelerates better uphill). Sounds almost similar to a Flowmaster, but a little louder and not quite as deep and "rumbly". It has a dual inlet, single outlet catalytic converter, thus the single 3" pipe.

    nice work....very happy for you: some questions though.

    Is this one 4X4? I knew you wanted somthing 4WD to plow with, is this going to be your new work truck...whats the 250 going to do?

    nah she's 6x4. Only back 4 wheels drive. I probably will not do plowing this winter because still in school. The F250 I sold to a kid Friday. His first truck just got his license that day. Hated to see it go :cry: it was a good looker.

    $1600 for the white one. It needed much repairing so I thought if a person put $1000 into it it would be worth $2600.

    Don't think this truck will see a plow.

    Thanks John. The Pro is doing well. Need a new skid, but it stripes well still. I love the eXmark! Next year I really want a 60" Lazer though!!
