BTW, I have front and rear sets of the diamond pattern, quick install chains and am a BIG fan. Used them on the jeep prior to this and now 2 seasons on Doug. Easy to put on and they give good lateral stability and bite in snow and mud.
Picture, or it didn't happen.I had just done the 415k oil change on my '99 F350 before racking up 3500 hunting miles this fall. I'd take that truck anywhere. My eyes sometimes wander to other trucks, but this one checks all of the boxes: pre-emissions diesel, seats six, 4x4, long box, standard trans, not scared to get scratched, comfortable to drive.
Nice custom chain tensioners!Ol Doug performed admirably again on this last trip. Loaded with gear, on the way to and from CPOs house on the highway I got over 19 mpg Uses a little oil but it IS 27 years old. Best part is driving it off road to places and in ways guys with new trucks won't or can't. Folks are always asking why I don't get a new truck. Biggest reason is that it would only take 3-4 payments to reach what my total cost for Doug was. I think I have put about 3500 miles on him so far but have to guess as the odo doesn't work.....just more character
