Default My Truck. How bout yours?

Before I bought this ATV and joined this forum I used to hang out on other truck forums while pittin some mods on my truck. Just cvurious if anybody else had other trucks they've worked on. Here's mine.

Na, it's just the V10. They wanted $4,500 more for the diesel versus $345 for the V10. Not that it's not worth it. 7.3 litre twin turbo! But I've had this truck 11 years 1 month and only have 83,500 miles on it. That includes 3 trips to Los Angeles and 2 to Las Vegas, NV (1 each after it was lifted). It really does drive great on the highway. No vibrations at all. The initial cost and additional cost of maintenance (15 quarts of oil versus 6) for the diesel just didn't make sense for my needs.

Real trucks have glow plugs.

Crap. Then I guess the wife's new Tundra doesn't qualify. And I really like that engine. I won't know what to say when she's ready to hand it off to me. It doesn't have a glow plug? I knew I should have included that option when I ordered the V10.

I had to edit: I've already taken my beatings on the truck forums. So it's all good for me. I get the humor.

Yeah, I'm just messing with you. You have a very nice truck. I debated if a diesel was worth the $$$ too.
