    i bad my f250 1999. Got it brand new in 1999
    it has 158,000 miles on it now. I have put tire on it 4 times. It still has the same muffle on it. But today i got a hole in it. So i stop and got one today to put on it. My 2008 dump 1 month ago got fuel tank and lines done. It 38,000 miles on it. It was rushing out. The dealer did it free for me because i just got 2 new truck from them.

    wrong on casco bay. all my truck come from Wiscasset ford. casco bay would not cut on the amount of the truck. a guy down the road from me work at wiscasset ford. he will take my truck for me. if it has to go it. plus they will get me give loaner if i need it. on my f450 i save 8000.00 by get it from wiscasset then casco bay. on 2008 i stop in casco bay and told them what i wanted to pay and they said not way. went to wiscasset and told them what i wanted to pay got it. i am a price shopper. so i just stay with wiscasset ford.

    Nope, Ford here....used though, so didn't go through any dealer. Good to know about Wiscasset vs. Casco Bay. Only prob. is if the truck needed to be towed, big $$$$ all the way up to Wiscasset.

    You all set for the winter? I ended up passing on that account that we had talked about. Gonna focus on fertilizing/seeding.

    We should talk, I sometimes have customers that ask about mowing...Ok, back to the thread! Ford always...

    Bought a '91 F250 from the yarmouth school dept. back in '03, put a flat bed/dump from Coastal Metal Fab and beat the hell out of it for 5 years before it blew a cylinder....plowed heavily from day one with the school guys, then I pounded it in the winter and hauled 4 yds mulch/grass clippings regularly all summer. Getting rid of my 98 expedition with 256k...still runs fine. ORiginal exhaust still on it!
