Try going to freaking Houston! I had my a/c go out in my tractor...and I still had to deliver my load! I had to untarp a 53' load in 100+ degree and a billion percent humidity! That's 2 tarps at 90 pounds each, about 12 straps, and 2 huge bundles of bungees. Take it all off and roll it up...omg. With no a/c to cool off mind you.

Don't even ask about tarping the aluminum load in southern texas. We vowed never to speak of that day again...
No doubt. It's a livable heat. I lived in the Caribbean for a few years in some jungle weather. It's no paradise when you are working instead of sitting in a hammock. Summers here are still hot though. My truck doesn't even have ac. Just vent. It came from the northwest where ac isn't standard I guess. I don't know how I feel about it. Sweat isn't my favorite liquid in the world.

Got about 70% of my body lift done. If my buddy didnt have to work today, I would have be done. Some of it was a pain in butt. Doing it by yourself.

Well, I have the 2.9 with only 60K original miles, well replaced valve cover gaskets,head gaskets, spark plugs, wires, fuel filter,air filter, oil and filter. Too much and adjusted the lifters. Still knocking after adjusting them. Pissing me off now.
Hop this beer kicks in soon.

It's the pioneer sph-da02. It's called the AppRadio. It's strictly for iPhone/iPod. No CD player. Just plug in phone. It's got Bluetooth and uses the iPhone GPS

You bastard lol I was supposed to have new moog UCAs, Deotsch spindles, and new Bilsteins on my truck yesterday. I don't want to get into detail on why it didn't happen because i'll get depressed about it all over again
