    Getting into a diesel is just a money pit. Higher initial cost, higher repair and maintenance bill, and higher fuel cost. If you’re hauling heavy all the time or long distances, I could see it. Everything I’ve read shows people switching to the gassers and they come out on top in money. Someone even priced out the differences and it was something like 150k miles before the diesel pays for itself.

    I went for Mass Communication. Which is the fancy liberal arts way of saying video/audio production, marketing, and advertising. Does any of that interest you?

    Video/Audio production is definitely interesting, I don't know what marketing and advertising entails.

    I need to find out if any of my AAS credits for welding/metallurgy will transfer for another degree, i know my general credits will.

    I transferred into a university January 2018 with roughly 85-90 credits. Only 70 transfer into a 4 year institution. So I had to take two electives, and one advanced writing course. After that, its been all Mass Comm classes. They have focus areas. Video production. Audio production. Video/audio. Marketing. Advertising. Radio/Telecomunications. I chose to go with video production since my other option would have been a fine arts degree in visual arts (photography). I chose to use what i learned in community college and teach myself about photography while i went to school to learn video and dabble in some other stuff.

    I'll try to answer as much as I can. Ask away my friend!

    It’s not that big of a difference. The new 10 speed keeps that 5.0 in its power band. The 3.5 makes its power down low, and the tiny turbos aren’t that great up high.

    Towing the 3.5 can’t be beat. It makes torque much lower then the 5.0

    but with it being turbo'd and so tuneable, it has so much more potential

    I went ahead and applied to a local Community College for the fall semester, right now major is Mechanical engineering, I build too many things to not know how to calculate load/safety.

    I'll probably end up taking a Photography and videography class near the end of my classes.

    There’s definitely more potential with a tune but I wouldn’t put an aftermarket tune on a brand new truck personally.

    I didn’t know what i wanted to do. So i took general studies and a bunch of electives over the course of 2012-14. Come 2015 i tried photography classes and loved them. Then did did a one year graphic design course and finally tried video. Loved it. But i was burnt out on school. Took a 9 month break (summer and fall of 2018). Met Alec and she convinced me to go back to school at her university and do their media program; which ended up being Mass Comm. I have loved it. I’ve run into some stupidly dumb liberal teachers, but most have been great. Its been a good experience and i’m glad i went back. I should be done in December with a bachelors after 6 years of fumbling around.

    So I’ve been looking between the new ranger up to the F250 looking at all the difference options and specs and whatnot trying to decide on what to get.

    The ranger is pretty impressive and I could get a fully optioned out lariat model for the same price as the XL 150 or 250 with only some options.

    My research has shown the dealer can tell once you’ve re-written the ECU. Even if you put it back. And they will not warranty the powertrain with an aftermarket tune.

    If they weren’t gay, they’d put more mustang parts on the damn thing so it wouldn’t be so slow

    This has not been my experience with GM. Maybe Ford has more complex software :notsure:

    I’ve been in and out of college since 2013, started with Gen Ed and some Auto Tech classes, moved out of state and after a year decided to go back to college, studied welding for 3 semesters, took a one semester break before deciding to take the 3 gen ed classes required to get my AAS and now I’ve decided to go back to get my Bachelors so in 6 years I can go into the reserves and finish my 20 right at 50.
