Winter driving in Alaska demands a dependable rig. I have no real loyalty to any single manufacturer, some I like, some I don't. I don't like Subaru or any EV, either. Earlier this year I picked up a smashed up old 1981 F250 4x4 with the 351M and manual 4-speed. The kid I bought it from had it tuned and straight piped. LOTSA FUN for about a week, scaring the stuffins' out of Subaru hotrods and the like at the intersections. But I have a good friend who is an exhaust expert/artist and I paid for a nice, mellow exhaust through a resonator and Flowmaster. Now I am adding HEI ignition and later an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold with a matching 4-barrell carburetor. Decided after 8-months of driving, the old boy likes normal clutch releases and not taking off too fast. Looks don't matter but I really like having an electric lift gate!
