Update..

The truck died because the wiring harness shorted out...somewhere...and fried the ECM.
New wiring harness, new ECM, and now up to a total of 3 new injectors...$6000 so far.

The (sh) city shop is making a big stink cause nobody ever told them the truck was loosing power
And the mayor wants to know why we spent $6000 somewhere else when they claim they could've fixed it.
But I stood in there office and all but screamed "THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS TRUCK" and they told me flat, "They all do that when they're 15 years old.'

YEAH...we could've installed MAX sticks and twins and called it a new wiring harness

We could just blow out fires with the AWESOME rush from the dual turbo exhaust, and smothered them with the Big Black Cloud of Death !!!

Well I think our years of bloodied knuckles deserve to charge our rates.

Oh, that's funny!!
But the Ms. attorney general ruled a few years back it was illegal to advertise on city vehicles.
There's some company that will get you a piece of equipment for pennies on the dollar if you let them put adds on them, but they said we couldn't.

They didn't touch the front end, only the engine.

I've been told I just have to live with it pulling to the right until it wears out this set of tires and I can show them where one side wore way ahead of the other.
