Lol. And ya'll make fun of my 2.9... I've had it three states out a few times. Have yet to be by a roadside. 👍🏿
2.8 was limited by oil capacity. It hasn't been my dd since 2003 so I have always had something nicer in the fleet since then.

Only time I have been on the side of the road so far was when I blew a u-joint last year (knocking on wood) I pulled the rear driveshaft and limped home in FWD.

For supply runs to Omaha my Supercab F-150 is tight with wife and two dogs now... and it is only going to get worse from here. Standard cab Ranger generally need not apply.

We need more truck pics in here!

I was trying to explain how I know you and used "Will hauled my Bronco II back to TN after it caught fire" as the lead
We had a lot of fun over the years. Like when you tipped over with that 100# tire on your roof. Or that nightmare on the side of the road in the middle of the night--no shoulder--near Lisbon. I don't remember what that was about. And then the one I mentioned before, come-alonging (a new verb!) a truck across an ice slope in the middle of the national forest with no other help in a million miles--and no such thing as cellphones back then. At least not for me.

Now we are older and mature and this trip should go smooth....

I still can't believe that spindle waited all that time to finally seize up. Makes no sense
