    There must be something in the water, I was hoping for a boy but healthy is all I cared about and now my parents have 5 granddaughters. I have 3 cousins that are having all girls and every friend of mine has daughters.

    In most vehicles, there are two D shaped tether hooks in the back seats where the seat bottom and back meet to attach the base of a car seat. My 13 F250 doesn’t have them but there is an adapter plate that can be used to add them. It has the upper anchor points behind the seats.

    They’re required for all cars under 8,500 GVW; Ford did not install them in F250/F350 trucks until 2018 from what I’ve read.

    Ok thanks but not an issue, i put my grandson (5) in mine (19 f350 crew), if you pull the belt to the end it retracts in the locked position.

    Very nice, you shouldn't have any issues getting that to sell

    Thanks man! I really like it but a 1/2 ton or Transit van would make more sense for us at this time.

    My truck just hit 80k miles and thanked me with this:

    I guess I can't complain too much since it's the first failure.

    Dealer wants $140 just to look at it. $1,006 just to replace the compressor. They said it's likely a large leak caused the compressor to lock up. They're talking several grand to fix what is apparently an extremely common problem with these trucks.

    By the way it's 105* this week.:knary

    That sucks man! I can't see good enough on my phone, is it a Chevy/GMC truck? I ask because I have two coworkers with newer (2015 and 2017) GMC half tons and both of them lost A/C just as soon as it started getting warm this month! All of a sudden I felt less bad about my Cummins needing a $600 turbo actuator at 90k miles.

    Yep, 2015 Chevy half ton. The system still has pressure so I guess the compressor just couldn't handle the heat today. Going to get a second opinion after the dealer looks at it.

    I may do it myself and save roughly $700.

    If you can do it yourself that's great. If you were closer I'd offer to help you out, but I doubt you want to drive a couple thousand miles in the heat to save a few hundred bucks fixing your A/C! Hopefully the news is good and they can get you back to chillin in no time.

    It's not about saving money it's about getting to meet a great guy and BS about trucks while fixing one.

    I've got you beat, try about $1100 to replace all the rotted out brake lines at 92k miles....like they say you cant stop a chevy.:fpalm

    I drug home another pickup today, still not sure why other than it being free. I don’t have a whole lotta use for a half ton so I may sell it, turn it into an off-road toy or just drive it around and keep miles off my diesel. I honestly have no idea what I’m going to do with it. Still, I have the same policy for trucks that I have for candy bars; I never say no to a free one! I believe he said it’s a 2003, didn’t actually look at the title when he handed it to me. It runs great and has a new battery so it was certainly worth dragging home.

    Dang, that sucks. I’m guessing rust is a normal issue though living where you do? Stainless brake lines would be a nice thing to have factory!

    Wisconsin so yeah rust is a very big issue, the truck will rust out before it wears out.

    I know there was a big class action suit that was taken against GM because of their brake lines but nothing ever happened.
