    Yeah. We only saw 3 other people today in the mountains, but it is a somewhat remote area. So not usually very busy. If you follow OutInTheWoods, AKA Dave Keith, he does a lot of work in these parts. But around town, we are all bidniss. In and out, food, car. The weather has been perfect for photos lately. I just haven't been able to go out.

    I've got 215K on mine, and the engine is perfect. The problem is the rest of the car's wear/tear. 1 axle is failing, the clutch is finally starting to slip a bit, the A/C compressor seized, and now the interior decided to start falling apart, all in about a 10K mile-span. I already did a head job and the 200K service due to a blown head gasket. Beyond that, the car has been flawless in the 60K miles I've had it. I routinely get 42-43mpg hand-calculated overall average (highway, in-town, mixed and varying periods of idling) and I've never driven it easy. I didn't abuse it, but I tend to drive cars like I ride motorcycles.

    I think installed was another 3K or so, depending on a few factors. Just the milling/CNC'ing they do to make a 6.4 PSD crank work in a 6.0 PSD block is amazing. Diesel power had a pretty good article on it, and I believe that it's linked on the company website. Unless I eventually buy a Cummins, I will likely end up doing that engine if/when I need to rebuild the one in my dually.

    It sees heavier tows than the 250 does and more power, with good EGTs, is always welcome. I scaled a load of hay awhile back for a friend that I hauled from North of Cassoday KS to Belle Plaine KS. Should've done the math before I went, as the trailer and hay was a tick over 26K, NOT counting the truck. Gross I was around 35K. That was ALL that truck wanted, and that's with 4:10 gears. My old f-350 wth th 7.3/ZF-6 and 4:33's would have done better, but turned a lot of RPMs much over about 55mph, and sounded like a machine shop (according to the boss). I'd like to be able to be able to do 26-28K CGW comfortably.

    2003 Jetta TDI ALH 5 speed. I guess I should install the clutch and flywheel I have had in the trunk for the last few years in anticipation for the original going out. Done two timing belts and little piddly things to it. Headliner is drooping as usual, I should just take it down. 47/48 MPG usually.

    When I sent him the picture of the odometer working, his excuse was that he had never seen it work since he had the truck. Odometer not working on these early digital gauges are a known thing. I made the mistake of taking him at his word and since it is a 7 hour round trip to take it back I am just going forward and using it as a learning experience.
