Did some horse trading yesterday, let go of Buckwheat...my 22 yr old Tundra with 226K on the clock. Drove home in Spanky: 07 Tundra 4.7L V8 and only 111K...5 spd auto with tow package. It's gonna take a while to learn all the controls, but lookin forward to seeing how many JD GTs I can cram into the bed. :p

That's probably close...I'm no good at metric conversion. The old Ford 300 I6 was a 4.9L, so 283 sounds close. It's really peppy, or seems so after driving a 3.4L V6 for several years...I'm still adjusting to throttle response time.

Well after some driving time, I really like it...I was due for an upgrade and it rides/drives real smooth. Mpg varies from 13-14 in town, driving like my/your great auntie, and 16.5 to17.6 down the road at highway speed using the cruise control. I can live with that..

I always go over a new/used vehicle until my curious nature is quenched a bit. Did a fresh oil change, tranny fluid looks clean and red, pulled a spark plug today (coil on plug) and found good color, checked air filter and adjusted tire air pressure all around. Put a new rubber roof drip molding on cab, figured out the under bed spare is in good shape, and scored a locking lug nut key from the dealer for a decent price. Still learning all the extra controls, beyond the necessities. If it warms up enough tomorrow the supervisor may get his first ride in the new ride.

Chocolate
The best color of lab, not that I am biased at all from having 2 when I was younger… …miss the old girl, the Golden’s just aren’t quite the same…
Also nice truck.

I agree...right proper hounds they are. Happy Jack is our 3rd in a row since 2000. I stumbled across PJ, our 1st chocolate shop supervisor, at the pound after losing our Shepard/Wolf cross to old age. He'd been cast off due to divorce. Then came Diesel, a large rowdy cuss who was also epileptic & required a special diet...Diesel & I chased deer together in two states. He was a faithful brown shadow. I found Jack at the pound too after we lost Diesel...you CANNOT neglect your pup exercise duties with Jack around. I had to teach him dog wrassling but he's a quick study and is a master of the surprise body slam takedown now. Loves to ride and swears he can drive...
Lying in wait, ready to pounce...
