We got 7. Do trailers count? Cause that’s gunna add up.

My parents and their friends use to try to add up how many tires they had around the house (being used or not being used). Amazing how many you can have.

What do you guys think about the rumored 8.3L duramax? I have been reading a few articles, seems interesting.:unsure:

Na it won’t be that big. It’s going to be bigger but not that big from what I’ve been told

Na, probably be a whole new block. Spread the bores slightly, adjust bottom end webbing, all that good stuff
You think they'd go through all that development after putting all that money into the L5P engine? Or it this something that is going to be 10 years down the road kinda thing?

Yup. Think about the lbz block and lml block. There was webbing change, bolt area changes and so on that were tweaked. The basics may be the same or similar but it’s going to be a whole new block with a different mold.

Well guys, daughter went into hospital today bc she thought her water broke. Her due date is the 21st, so its entirely possible our grandson will make his debut sometime in the next couple days. :)

Roni's flight is on the 20th, and we were hoping Han would hold on, but when baby wants to come, you aint stoppin him. :LOL:

Not gonna lie Adam, I like the safety tech in my 24. The blind spot system is nice to have.
The only safety feature I like in this '24 semi.. is forward radar that tells me how fast the vehicle in front of me is going.
Everything else is a safety issue this Bendix one will yell at you if you signal your merging before clearing the over taken vehicle

Speaking of safety, came up in this 2 miles from my stop..
If you zoom in behind the cruiser, there is a black vehicle wedged under the trailer, and trailer landing gear is destroyed... Its 25-30mph in that area.
News said 1 didn't make it... And did not say how many where is the vehicle under the trailer. Truck driver was walking around freely.. deducted the black vehicle ran a red light at a high rate of speed
