    Head gaskets and studs on 6.0

    Looks like I haven't been on here for a long while but i need some advice. I have a 2006 powerstroke 6.0 and am pretty sure it needs head gaskets and studs replaced. Who is the best mechanic for said work verses best price verses who can get it done soon in the Idaho Falls area. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    these are good, thought i'd share

    1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you. 2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck. 3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy. 4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away. 5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.' 6. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle or a shotgun.' 7. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!! I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I did. She said 'Well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!' To which I said, of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets!' She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?' My reply was, 'No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.' To which I'll add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.

    Dyno Day in Idaho Falls, June 27-28

    I really want to dyno my truck and see where it is at, but I got to work friday and Saturday nights. Don't get home till 8:30 in the morning. What time does it all start sign in and all and what is the entrance fee? Got to decide if it is worth staying up for. I know I'm not in the running to win anything, I'd be lucky to get over 350 horses.

    what is this?

    You don't need that Jeremiah, thats one of those things that will make a dodge run better, you know like a ford and you already have a ford, so it won't do anything to your truck. jk

    trip to boise from Idaho Falls?

    that could work, if nobody is making the whole trip. What days are you thinking? I have all of next week off, my wife seems to think she gets to take a week vacation to New York without me, course i don't think i would want to go with all her sisters and mother anyways, and it's probably only fair cause i plan on doing a lot of riding this summer on this new bike.

    trip to boise from Idaho Falls?

    I just bought a sweet dirt bike in caldwell and need to get it back to Idaho falls. Is anybody gonna be making a trip from Idaho Falls or surrounding area to Boise or from Boise over here in the next couple of weeks? I might just end up driving myself over so if anyone needs anything taken or brought over from boise let me know. I could pitch in some fuel money if anyone is gonna be making that trip. thanks all.

    condensed version of history

    A Condensed Version of History For those who slept through World History 101...... here is a condensed version. Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter. The two most important events in all of history were: 1. The invention of beer, and 2. The invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer, and the beer to the man. These facts formed the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: 1. Liberals 2. Conservatives. Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B B Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement. Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy and group hugs, the evolution of the Hollywood actor, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide all the meat and beer that conservatives provided. Over the years, Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass. Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat. Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living. Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained inEurope when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing. Here ends today's lesson in world history....... It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it. A conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers, and to more liberals...just to piss them off.

    A dog is truly a man's best friend. If you don't believe it, just try this experiment. Put your dog and your wife in the trunk of the car for an hour. When you open the trunk, see who is really happy to see you!
