What the actual fuck... brand new Ford F250s have a death wobble over 65, and the dealership guy STATES it's NOT designed for speeds over 65
What would you do if you purchased a new 2017 Ford F250, with a $90k price tag, and it shook violently?
Then you take it back to Autonation Ford of Littleton, where you purchased it and an Autonation employee tells you they can't fix it and it's not designed to go over 65mph and you should have bought and F150?
Truck bought brand new this year. He was very upset after phone call and went down to pick up and discuss and ended up cussing out the manager at Autonation.
Manager called cops he was removed from dealership.
This was on the Tom Martino Show on radio 630KHOW AM in Denver on Jan 5th 2018
skip the first minute to see what this looks like when seeing the truck from the outside
Results are in for a comparison test of what is the better tool box drawer friction slide lube, beeswax, paraffin, or Door Ease
using equal lead weights, and 3 similar drawers in the same toolbox;
results; door ease is real easy to apply while I used a heat gun to help the paraffin and the bees wax. I noticed little drag on the beeswax but smelt the best when using heat to apply to slide. I notice very little to no difference between door ease and paraffin.
FYI, Doorease uses paraffin as a primary ingredient
The middle is paraffin and is cheap and can be found everywhere. That's half of the original bar and 3 come in a package.
The right is beeswax, again hardware stores
Results? paraffin probably the cheapest, easiest to find with about same results as the door ease.

Bodied by LeBaron and used for the glamour car shows of 1929 and 30, such as the Paris Auto Salon, and the New York Grand Central Palace in the following spring, then at the conclusion of the New York show, the Lincoln was sent on a tour of the United States, with stops in Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Chicago; Los Angeles; San Francisco; and Seattle
At the Seattle show, it was sold to its first owner, the operator of a Washington state airline, for $10,000
It portrayed the aircraft theme in its wing-like front fenders and single tailfin.
According to the Tire Baron of Long Beach, this car in bare Aluminum took 4 days to polish
It won the Best Of Show at the 2017 Beverly Hills Concours, was shown at the 2013 Pebble beach, and will be in the LaJolla Concours this April 7th and 8th
if you think this is a bit odd, take a look at the 1927 Lincoln with the Judkins body http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/12/1927-lincoln-judkins-coaching-brougham.html
some people collect tool boxes... but as much space as they take up, and how little you'll use most of them except as decoration, I don't know why
something that takes up very little space, I get it. Something to pull out and enjoy, or a bunch of things on display for their looks and variety, or maybe a "I collected the whole set" type of accomplishment.
Or like tools, the more you have the better your choices are when you need to pick the best one to use. Or like expensive cars, they simple appreciate in value and eventually you profit.
But tool boxes? I don't think so. The market is sorta flat. Most are so mass manufactured they aren't uncommon, and the price isn't going to go up. Probably go down as fewer job involve using tools to build and repair
Mouse hunt! Found 3 live ones and multiple food stashes (how do mice get into a daily driver? So many of them? With that much food?)
When you find the missing timing belt cover bolt... because it pops up of it's own accord
People who can't see the damn road because they won't miss a damn text... be warned, they are out there
Simon Laprise has sculpted a full-sized car replica out of snow to fool the snow removal guys.
"I am passionate about building and designing stuff," the 33-year-old Canadian woodworker from Montreal said. "I did the car to have fun expressing my creativity on that beautiful day."
It's illegal to park on the road during snow removal, and that's what probably attracted the police.
the police left a note saying "you made our night!!!" with a smiley face.
For heading over to the kids hospital, Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospital, in Atlanta.

10 year old boy, before 6 am, gets his 1 yr old kid sister in the car, then drives off to visit his grandparents.
The boy – who lives near Dokka, a town 110kms (68 miles) north of Oslo – put his 18-month old sister into the car sometime before 6am, while his parents were still sleeping and set off to visit his grandparents in Valdres, about 60 kilometres away.
He drove more than 10 kilometres before veering off the road, where he was found by a snowplow driver who alerted police.
“The parents woke up and discovered that the children were missing and that someone had taken off with their car. They were pretty upset, as you can imagine,” said Christiansen.
Trolling half the human race? That's impressive!
