Why are new ones so goddamn expensive!? www.ebay.com/itm/191728980730
$80 for a fucking plastic bottle!? ARE YOU KIDDING?

You would think they could at least toss in a new cap for it too but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THATS EXTRA!

Fuck a guy in the ass at least give him a reach around, know what I'm saying?

2nd one on the page. Will save you $30 at least.

I think these bottles go bad more by heatcycles than age. My 2002 JUST started to develop a few cracks at the cap. I dont think its actually leaking yet (since I did a pressure test on the cooling system which passed perfectly), but still. I will never understand why ford decided to use so much plastic on the cooling system of these trucks..
