Still snowing, got several inches more than they guessed. It's supposed to clear and then pick up again tomorrow. Gotta get the 1st gen in the shop this morning.

It's a 3.0L Mercedes, the guy posted it wrong in the add. The Liberty diesel isn't a Mercedes engine and there are a lot of complaints about it. Besides, I don't fit in one. I was able to get past the anti diesel rhetoric and found a few honest reviews on the JGC TD. One comparing it performance wise with the 5.7 Hemi. Typical fuel mileage is 23mpg. One common complaint is the flow plugs have a short life span.

Good Morning DieselRam....
Like JFJ, Rain from now until as far as they will guess..
I heard all the Kentucky folks were migrating toward that Ark.
37 earlier, 40 now, 47 later, warmer tomorrow and 100% chance of rain.
Probably no more shed haulin this week.

Cougar, is that 3.7 the "ecodiesel" dodge puts in the 1500??
Sounds like a sweet combination if it is.

Fire truck wouldn't start this morning..
Think it lost prime on fuel even with the anti drain back filter we installed a couple weeks ago.
Wet around the shutoff valve on the CP3, or whatever its equivalent is on an M11.
I finally got it to kick off and it's at the shop now.

Clunk, now you got me thinking...
The 07 has had an exhaust leak for a while....

Good morning DR, 42* and 58* with ….drum roll please...….rain. Youngest boy, his wife and baby spent the night, nice having a house full again. He starts his night shift when he gets home...I think he likes night better. Coffee is ready, y'all come on up.

Smoke, it's a different engine. The more I read about it the more I like it though.
Winter storm warning starting at 3 PM today to 3PM tomorrow. They are saying up to 8" in my area, more depend on where you are. I'm expecting more up at the house and less here at the can. Now that the 92 is driveable again, I'm going to fill the reserve tanks.

Good Morning DIeselRam...
The river is full and the creeks too, and the pond in the back yard, and the ditches on the driveway!!
More rain today and tomorrow. Morning low is about where yesterdays high was...saw 50 yesterday, 47 this morning and climbing. Rumor of some ugly stuff for Saturday...
Gonna be a frosty April...Heard thunder every day this week I believe.

Didn't even try shed haulin. Picked up a zero turn mower for parts...maybe make 1 good one between 2.

Been shopping for shops, 30x 40-50 with a porch to work under.

Ralph will be here tomorrow.
High 73 and 90% chance of evening thunderstorms. Might try fishing..
