OT Finally back from a miserable trip
Gods above I will never own a Ford Truck like my mother-in-laws truck. It's the 6. whatever one that has all the engine troubles. Bleedin' miserable machine if I ever saw one!
Not even a full 24hrs worth of actual drive time and we broke down not once... but TWICE! First time, the fuel pump went and took out two injectors. Which meant a full bank of injectors had to be replaced. So, we had to drop the camper in the ford lot in Rock Springs Wyo. and spend the night there, so the truck could be worked on. Because of course... we arrived just about 15 min. too late to have the darn truck looked at.
200 miles later... a rear wheel seal blew out! OMG talk about miserable. I'd say, about 2 hrs before sunset this happens. So yep... another Ford lot, in Heber City. At least this time we didn't spend the night in that Ford lot. LOL
Drive the rest of the way to SoCal, carefully, however, this vehicle she has, has got to be the roughest most miserable ride I've ever experienced. Right on the bumpstops, slamming our spines up through the top of our heads the whole way. Turn around and head back after 5 days then...
40...Forty! Miles from her home... Yep! Broke down again!
Did I mention how much I detest Fords? LOL
Well, let me say it again, "I hate Ford Full size duel Diesel trucks! With an Absolute passion!" I will never own one, Ever. I am stickin' with my Dodge Ram duel diesel. 2004 1/2. Yes, 1/2. LoL Ask Dodge, they love this one. Would not stop calling us to come trade it in. Cuz they could resell it in a snap! *Snap!* This dodge has gone to Florida 3 times and California 2 times. Never once did this ol' gal break down on us. :) Did I mention, I love my Dodge? ;)
Future trips will *not* be made in my mother-in-laws truck. And I wouldn't drive either, backseat and passenger seat drivers just irk me to no end. I'll hammer the breaks and drop em off or get out myself. :P No tolerance for it!
Anyway, Thank you for reading this ramblin' post. I figured I'd share the story and vent a little bit. ;) I'll post pictures soon! Oh and I got a Plumaria tree as a gift! Hehe! So that was a nice surprise.
