...speaking of fords

Recommended Posts

:lmao: I can't help but laugh.. But I also do feel sorry for the guys in a way too...On my dreaded trip to Yakima, I encountered a couple fords on the side of the road. Hazards were on and was getting hooked up by the other to be towed by a couple chains.I pass them up and go on my way. I make a few hills and this and that cruising on average between 50-55mph. Not too much longer after, I see them PASSING me. Wow... okay, so someones got some brains!As irony goes, lo' and behold, I see them at an off-ramp, with both of them on the shoulder of the off-ramp with the one towing the other broken down from over-heating! :lmao:The cloud was a billowing from that ford! It was only a matter of time until they seen a couple vultures hovering them!...fords, go figure!

That's too bad, they should have gotten the big shiney chrome front grill option...... makes it work better :)Yesterday I had to turn in next to a guy all decked out in his new Ford. He looked like he was ready to show off to everyone and his girlfriend. Here's Me in my 400,000 mile, 20 year old 1st gen. I tried hard not to notice so he wouldn't feel so bad.:):lol:

Work trucks used for business are considered 100% tax deductable at the IRS as long as it's not a Ford.Bring a Ford truck in for repairs and you get a Dodge for a loaner :)

Mopar Icon Notes
To all readers do remember this is all said in fun.
I can say you can dog on all makes and models of vehicles and find fault with every one of them the only reason most here feel really good about there Dodge's is because of the fact we have figure out how to over come the problems. The same can said about Chevy and Ford owners too so if you find a talented group for them you might hear the same thing...Personally I would say I don't like Fords much at all. But the Chevy's well there nice but since my Dad worked for GM (Van Nuys, CA division) I know all the problem with them too. So really I've been a Dodge owner since day one. Back to have fun...:wink:

My brother has 350k miles on his 6.0. It had that head gasket issue like all the rest, changed it and now its fine. Has had 13,000+ lbs on it it's whole life with him driving it like he stole it. Automatic tranny is completely stock and untouched. Those torqueshifts or whatever they are are bulletproof. Still, it won't move if it's under 2000 RPM and theres no way I would want to work on the mess under the hood. I also hate the way the 1999+ style F250's drive and feel. I hate the way my dodge feels as well but not as much as those things. My old 1990 F250 was awesome, seems they have just gone downhill from there. I drove a 2012 2500 duramax allison whatever it is and it had that ford feel to it as well. Just 100000lbs of luxury and no real truck feel, I just can't stand that. I did used to drive the 1st generation durmax (2001 I think) and it was nice. So nice that I would buy one over anything else. Obviously would need to super glue the tailgate latch in :lmao: But yeah after they went on to the newer styles they have just gone downhill. Everyone has a preference, that's my preference. If I had it my way I would put my dodge on top of the ford chassis keeping the 12V with it, put that torqueshift auto in it, be good to go.

You guys can dig on fords all you want but there are just as many issues with dodge trucks. Ford diesels are awsome if you take all the epa crap off em.

Its really all in good fun, nothing personal. That's whats great about this site, you won't see people verbally attacking anyone for any reason. Sure, we can all disagree on a subject, but the difference is nobody gets thrown under the bus around here. I personally am somewhat partial to Fords, I've owned several over the years and I've got two sitting in my driveway right now (Mountaineer and a Mustang). Every Ford I've ever owned treated me well. I think the majority of the poking you will see here is more related to the PowerStrokes, I think it's safe to say there isn't very many fans of them around here at all, including myself. I've got some friends that are diehard Ford guys from back in the days of the 7.3. Many of them have moved onto the newer generations with the 6.0 and 6.4. I see the money they spend under the hood of those trucks and I have to shake my head. Sometimes that brand loyalty can really make a fella go broke! :sick:BTW, welcome aboard!

i have a good friend with a ford f250 TD that just plants you in the seat. i mean this thing hauls the mail! bad thing is there are many problems with the engines/powerstrokes themselves that you dont hear of with other diesels. his truck looks good too

may i add a few.Dodge- Damn ol dodge go everywhere. Jeep - Just empty every pocket. did you know on a quiet night you can hear a ford rust? My step dad has an 00 ford f250, with only 42,xxx miles. and i gotta say. that truck can move. it'll smoke 02 cummins.my bio dad has a 09 duramax. lol and my cummins will as of right now run with his. neither one of us can pull on the other. all of them have faults. and strong points. i choose the cummins because my 94 year old grandpa told me if i wanted a REAL truck that would treat me good for years to come to buy a cummins, his 99 had 68,xxx and lost a main bearing, dodge replaced his engine, then it ran to 46x,xxx when he sold it and never a single brake down. we have a farm, all the truck do their fair share of hauling hay, cattle, horses. etc. these arn't just pavement pounders.
