    I am planning to leave Saturday morning to drive out to Tennessee for a couple days of vacation to explore the area. This is what my route is looking like now... I had originally planned to leave on Thursday (today) but had to push it back to Saturday morning due to time lost at work finishing up my tranny install. Anyone along my Route who might be willing to help in case of a problem can PM me a phone #.

    I just finished installing a rebuilt E4OD into my '89 F350 Crewcab for the trip. Should be getting 14-15 MPG loaded. So what are the Diesel prices like across the country right now anyway? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
