    Finally picked up a daily

    Bit the bullet and bought this truck not even knowing if it ran. Owner left it at the home depot parking lot saying it had a bad starter and just put it up for sale right there. Ended up being a frozen AC compressor that wouldn't let the motor turn over.
    Pretty clean minus one or two minor details but overall i'm happy with it so far. Should turn into my dd once my AC guy is done with it.

    Another one!? Didn't you just buy a long bed Chevy? Congrats on the easy fix though!

    Guy with the chevy took my deposit then kept dicking me around about how he still needed it and couldn't find a replacement so i ended up getting my money back. This one is in much better shape anyways.

    Not a whole lot of use for the 4wd in south florida but for the couple times a year I head up north it will be nice to have it. Might not come back a white truck on those occasions haha

    Good trucks, spark plugs are no fun but other than that I think you picked up a decent daily. Plus it's a Ford, so you won't feel as bad tearing it up

    I'm definitely dreading the first spark plug change. I've heard plenty of horror stories about plus snapping in half on removal, hopefully I get lucky
