    Replacement engine for BCS 948 tractor/tiller.

    Trailer towing question class 6 truck without CDL

    I've got a 2014 DRW Tradesman with the 68rfe and love it. 4.10 rear. Just over 20k for the trailer rating. 165k on the clock without anything major. You'll like which ever flavor you get!

    Fuel station - nozzle dusty

    Forgot to mention to tether the plug so that you don't lose it in the tank. Also you won't forget to replace when done fueling.
