Is that a private launch on the Allegheny ? If not it sure looks secluded..

Thanks Mark,
Yes, it is only used by me and a few friends who help me shovel the mud off of it in the spring.

MarkP, it is an 04' F150 FX4 4x4. 300 hp with 373 rear gears. I can get on the on ramp and gun it (with the boat) and will be doing 73mph when I hit the Interstate. Now that my friend is pulling. I work in the oilfield (where trucks are put to the test) and 95% of the companies run Fords. That says alot. My company truck is an 04' Ford F150 4x4 with 355 rear gears and it will not run with the 373 rear gears. But be sure you get the Triton 5.4 V8.

Brad, Thatís one of the trucks that Ive been considering. I need a smaller truck with more room. I may trade my 94 F250 this year. Iím dragging my feet to see if transmission issues develop with the 04 Fs. I know first hand of the transmission issues with the 04 Explorer.

How do you post pics? Do you have to make a gallery? I thought I saw some instructions on here once but can not seem to find them. I have alot of pics of my truck.

Thanks for the help.

Sold my 99 F250 Super Duty Diesel (smart move) and bought a 99 Suburban 1500 (even smarter move). Then I threw Add-A-Leaf's under the rear end & heavy duty shocks. Next was some good mudders & now she's a towing rig!

Granted, it's not quite as nice as my F250 Diesel, but then again, it doesn't require nearly as many wrenches as my FORD did.
