    Only GR could go from comparing how loud 2 diesels are to the olympics to the drug trade in the US.. :dizzy: :confused:

    Oh yeah, I must be deaf because the 6.0 F350 where I used to work was louder than the 7.3 F550..

    I am sure this has been said before (probably a million times)....
    If where you live is so horrible, there is no work, everything is expensive, why dont you move.
    I know you have a cushy government office job, but seriously either quit complaining about it, or move! Nobody forces you to live there, or work there....so move!

    Where I live is cheaper than living in Vancouver or other places in the Lower Corner of B.C.

    You can live in Vancouver and the houses are over half million for a run down dump. Or you rent a roach infested basement suite for 1300 a month.

    It is cheaper to buy a house in the USA than it is to buy one in B.C.

    Banks in Canada are not like in the USA you can't get a mortage for a house unless you make 80-100 grand a year.

    The work in Vancouver is done I think you are going to see massive un-employment now. The only thing keeping Vancouver going is the gov't spending trillions of tax money for the sh*tty olympics.

    Like they say the grass isn't always greener on the otherside I do have a full time job not many people can say that. Just pizzes a guy off that these people with money drive the working class people out the people that made this area what it is.

    No not yet I have to get a camera first I don't own one have to borrow one.

    Had to change a tire today what a SOB. I haven't dismounted and remounted a tire in a long time. I mean using bars to take the old tire off the rim and mount a another tire on the rim. I have spare 19.5 tires kicking around that have 10% tread left kept them for retreading. The drive tires on this truck are shot and one went flat.

    I will have to order a new set of drive tires I can't take them off my 03 F-450 which has near new drive tires but I have nothing to replace them with.

    If I want to sell my 03 I should keep good tires on it so it helps the sale of the truck.

    The 06 has good steer tires but they are cheap overseas tires I will swap them for the XZE Michelins that I have on the steer axle of the 03 they are only 2 months old.
