Driving one home. Made it to Wisconsin. Back thru Chicago. Eating in Valparaiso. Averaging 16mpg with the 7.3L 10sp. Got into some major stop and go all the way thru Chicago. Not really good for maximizing MPG. I'll take 16 in this one. It is respectable and about the same as my F150 did.
Congrats!

@5Cent you are not wrong. Last truck I bought was only 1/2 hr away. One before that was Indiana. My dually was Mississippi. Guess I don't like the local trucks. 🤣

@Buckmaster not really. It's all too much for this simpleton. Sat in the driveway once I got home and played around. Might have to go to the Ford dealer and pay for some training. I think there is some "My Key" I can set up to enable remote start and such. Usually my remote start is a text to the guys "Hey. Warm up my truck, please." Lol

I suppose you all want to see pictures. It has an old school look. Painted rims black. Added beauty ring like my first trucks had. Jury is out. I like shiny things. Might snag some take offs and use these for winter. Wheel base is 15-18" longer than my crew cab, long bed, dually. I'm undecided on this part of the truck too. Could be a big negative while plowing.

Had a text conversation with the family. Daughter said "why is hims back longer than hims front?" My son said "I'm sorry to say it but your truck fits in with us. It is LANKY!" Never heard a truck called "lanky" before. 🤣🤣🤣

Phil is a big fan of POR15 and has managed to keep older trucks on the road. I have faith in him protecting this asset like the others.
Thanks for triggering my squirrel brain thought process. Been looking into Woolwax. More a preventative measure. Probably worthy of its own thread but I have zero personal experience with it. @"J" is not wrong. Frames, fuel/brake/trans lines. . . .suspension parts. Only the body is aluminum. I'm a little apprehensive about oxidation. You know I'm going to test it with an in bed spreader.

Go old school and just spray it down with used oil. That tundra I had was like that from the previous owner. Sure, everything had a film on it, but brake cleaner washed it right off.
