the little time that I've had to drive it, I absolutely love it, way more power than my 01 LB7, and much better ride in general....but I'm sure the more time I get behind the wheel, I'll start finding things that I don't like and irritate me.
 It's been at my buddies garage for nearly a month...since I knew I was going in for surgery and was gonna be out of commission for a few weeks, I told him to just hold on to it and take his time with it. He actually just bought a new leftover 2013 2500HD with the LML, that I can't wait to take for a ride.

I hear ya...$30K is ridiculous, but it is worth every penny, and providing they're well taken care of...they hold their value pretty good. Honestly, I'm really surprised out of all people, you don't know anyone that has access into local auctions, or at least you haven't mentioned it.A lot of times they're bank defaults, and all they want is what was/is owed on the defaulted loan...sometimes it's low, sometimes it's high.
   
Excuse me, ma'am...but you've got extremely nice legs!!!...what time do they open???                                                                                                               https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8tCgN3aryQ

Only thing I don't like about the lml is the pee tank stuff

I'm assuming you're referring to the new emissions system crap?, I don't know very much about it, but from what I've heard, it sounds like a huge kick in the nuts...having to refill a 5gal DEF urea based fluid injector tank every 5K miles isn't very appealing....and on top of that, if you fail to refill it, the engine goes into "limp" mode.


My 04 f-150 is gonna need a new throttle body soon, as it's gone into "limp" mode a few times over the past few years...luckily, just shutting it off and restarting it resets the system and it goes back to normal, but it will eventually fail completely.

Well I've been putting a lot of thought into it since I got it...but I think a leveling kit is next. The only thing that's kept me from doing it is...it's only a 2 wheel drive...but I know it'll look better level.
I've got a 2 1/4" difference front and back...so the 2 1/2" kit it is.


When I got my F-150, it was the same way but worse...for some reason Ford had some of it's 4x4s roll off the line with -3" on the front ends, and some that sit perfectly level.
After I leveled it, I felt like I was driving a d**n monster truck.
