You bet. They don’t *want* you to remove them, but they have to be so they can replace the upholstery.

I had to do the same thing to my Super Duty.

You are welcome, glad it worked. They are a pita to wear a cowboy hat in the regular way.

30 years later.

Diesel is more expensive than gas, EPA has ruined the mpg, DEF,
The lack of reliability, initial expense.......

The performance of modern gas engines.


One would have to be an idiot to buy a diesel today unless really heavy
pulling at grade was frequent.

I believe that I'm on my last diesel now. Outside of the fart box (travel trailer) most of my trailer towing is within 150 miles of home these days. The price of diesel is pushing me towards a gasser a little more each day. My next truck will be a Chevrolet 6.6 gasser


Just because you're offended doesn't mean your right.

The 2024 Chev with the 10 spd Allison paired up with the gasser will be a nice truck I think and pull well.

We run 4 diesel trucks and the price of diesel really pizzes me off. But I sure can't see where buying a new gas truck can be more cost effective than my paid for diesel truck.

Flipped mine today and works just fine now with a cowboy hat on.

I was wrong the front seat is like the video and the rear seat has the buttons. But got it done.

When I got the f250 with the 7.3 gas I couldn't believe how light the front end felt.... or how heavy the diesel is. Definitely feels more nimble off road than the diesels.

Yes, and going to the Allison is a smart move. The 6.6 gasser that's in Huntsman's truck has been getting good reviews from guys around here. Of course, we'll see what it's like after 150k.......

Now If Chevy would make a 4500/5500 that looked like a normal Fugkin truck like Ford and Dodge.

Apparently they’re stopping production of the express/savana vans after next year too. Only option will be an EV platform.

How recently? My 22 F250 has locking hubs with auto engagement. I think I want to delete the auto engagement though because there are times when I want use 4 low without locking the front axle.

Company policy has evolved to try to roll the fleet over at 200,000. They put on a lot of miles in a year. I'm not pushing any brand of pickup here, just passing it on. Word is company is regretting providing pickups, used to be employee supplied pickup and was reimbursed mileage, but the workmen's insurance carrier said don't do that for legal reasons.
Yeah, employee driven trucks get hammered. It's not like they are making insurance and car payments on it.

I've had manual locking hubs fail too. As long as you use 4X4 on a regular basis to keep everything lubricated automatic hubs do pretty good. The only time I've seen either type fail was when they weren't used for a long time and the lack of lubrication prevented them from locking when needed.

I've owned a 4x4 of some sort since 1976. Back when there were 3 sticks in the floor and manual locking hubs it was easy to use 2wd low range. But they used to put warning labels in the cab warning drivers not to. I watched one person snap a U-Joint doing that. I suppose if you're careful and just need to go slow and aren't trying to pull much weight in 2wd low it would be OK.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

boss bought another gasser for me. A 2015 F-250 6.2. Needed a plowtruck so that's what he found for me. Gotta pull/swap the flatbed off the blown '08, but I'll wait till it's warmer and drier out.....

With my 85 Suburban with Warn manuals, I would only do it backing into tight or steep places with my trailer hooked up. I'd be surprised if I ever went more than 40' at a time.
