Kalifornia is completely bureaucratic. Sadly, most of California is nice and rural. You have the big 3 cities there calling all the shots for the rest of the entire state.

Diesel. Diesel all the way!!! Just stay away from the 2 engines I mentioned. There is a reason they are very cheap to buy. Just hold out for a T444 (its the same as the 7.3 powerstroke). These should...

Perhaps a dump for the park-brake. Even if there is no fitting, the valve may have been replaced. Also, could be an airline for the Stop-sign. Or possible for the wipers? or air-door actuator? I'm...

You're going to need something a little more manly than 3/8 sockets. 1/2 is likely too small as well, I'm sure they will hold up if you have a quality set, and a good breaker bar. I used a 3/4...
