Default Re: first time truck owner ,first time ford owner

i really wanted a reliable truck but i dont mind working an repairing things myself hopefully i wont need to do anything other then flush fluids an change all the filters
serp belt , spark plugs ,etc for awhile

someone stole my trailer hitch already 5 days ive owned it , afraid they might want my tail gate so i put hose clamps around the hinges an hit em with the welder .

stereo sucks so i started soldering in a bluetooth module / aux port its in parts on my desk , lol

noticed a thump/ bump when i take off an start that i didnt have when i test drove it , thinking / hoping its the slip yoke . noticed some folks on other forums drilling an tapping a grease nipple and installing traction bars , so might do both ?

anyway here's a pic
