This is my daily driver work truck. 2008 F-150 XLT. Has the famous 4.2 liter 6 cylinder. 147000 miles.
The first vehicle I ever owned with electric windows and mirrors and cruise control. Bought it used in 2010.
Good truck. It replaced my 1998 F-150 XL that had 212,000 miles. The seebells keep their vehicles until they won't go anymore

We do, too. I have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in my lifetime buying reliable cars, repairing them myself, and driving them until they die. For me, a car/truck is a tool - nothing more.

I watched a guy IC Weld on YouTube. It is amazing the kinds of damage on heavy equipment he is called on to repair. Broken bolts inside large castings is a norm for him. In one case he welded a 1 in. steel pipe to a broken bolt buried deep in a major casting, all done in the field underneath a Caterpillar. By welding the pipe to the bolt on the ID of the pipe he was able to extract the bolt using a pipe wrench. Sorry unable to get back to the specific video.
