    How do I feel about grass rings? I like a mix of kentucky blue, argostis and sinsemilla. You can run 70 or 80 rounds on it and then get stoned to the bejesus afterward.

    Look, Training brush can be 4' so saddle up, shut up, and kick up. 3'5" is a BS height.

    Yes, the 7.3s need regular replacement of the injector o-rings etc. And, yes, they absolutely make the engine more efficient. Mine runs about 19-20mpg with 15 towing a 3 horse after cleaning the...
