It will be a hell of an asset to have your knowledge back in action Charles. I've learned much from your past posts and look forward to seeing what you and Ol' Faithful can pull out of the dirt. It looks like you'll have a nice comfy ride on the way to your sites! Great to see your name up again...

Nice to see you back Charles.
Nice taste in trucks. That F250 has the same aluminum body as the F150 now correct?

Nice to see you back posting again. A bunch of your posts from a couple (?) years ago are must reads for anyone learning the Explorer. Especially the one where you explain how gain and sensitivity affect the ability to find deep coins. I have several of your posts saved as text files which I reread occasionally to reinforce the points in my mind.

She's a F350 6.7L Diesel and yes all aluminum body and bed, though the bed on the Superduty is thicker gauge aluminum vs the F150 to handle the higher payload ratings on the Superduty. The receiver hitch is...wait for it...3 inches Ahahaha! This beast is bad ass, like the Explorer SE Pro! :twodetecting:
