It was my first test of the tranny, brakes, rear, and front end. Man were these things built to last, thank God!!

Nice! Mine is going from headers to cherry bombs, no pipes after that (currently). A Beautiful sound smile

pan3lman, I feel your joy. My first ride was just me and "big orange" and it was short. Just down to the end of the street and back but it had just as well been 20 miles. Keep trucking brother, and congratulations.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thank you!!

I've owned the truck for 4 years. I really couldn't begin to do serious engine work on it until last Summer. Then, I found out the fuel tank was bad, and there is no repro for it. I was sure I was SOL. But thankfully, Tanks, Inc helped tremendously, and as they say in Jurassic Park, "Life found a way" smile
