I'm a ford man myself. My uncle had his last one for 18 yrs had 325000 plus miles n never any work on the motor just the little things. He just sold it n u still see it running the RDS. It seems like its all over here but I do my homework in the off season. I'm traveling farther n farther into the woods n didding in places that have not been dug in 10 ta 20 yrs. I fear that next yr won'tb as good its time to let these place b for at least 5 years n iI'll b knocking at the doors of strangers in hope of new land to hunt. But that is what we got to do to cure the disease we all have \"SHANG FEVER\".
