Nice looking F15 BTW.

I would have laughed in his face, like obscene Borat style laughed with forced spittle and all, then told him to stay in his lane and go bother some college girl with a rich daddy. The few times I've visited a dealer with my 4.6 all I get are jealous stares and high fives, maybe I just put off a Richard Cranium vibe.

Rescued a stuck 2wd ford explorer out of the snow bank yesterday.

Also my ABS module is still out for repair so no fancy DSC, just E53 heft, good tires, and of course excellent driving
That marks the 3rd snow rescue I've done with the E53 this year.

I did four the other day after 17" snow in Chicago and no plow dive the previous 8" or so. The side streets and alleys were just polished ice ruts with 10" or so of snow plowed by the previous SUV that could make it.

I could drive fine on the ice ruts but couldn't pull a mini van that was plowing 5" of snow on top of it. I broke my tow rope trying to tug it free.

Lived in snow country way too many years. Live in the South. Never going back though Texas may not have been the best decision.

I dream of Florida almost daily because I can't afford Cali and don't have any ties to the cartels to feel safe in Baja. . .

Went to the junkyard at least 10 times to find a replacement headlight for the cracked one from when I purchased the car last month. For some reason out here in California facelift headlights get taken extremely fast. On my last trip ended up finding complete piano/cosmos black interior trim for $20!!

Coolant tank replaced. Now have semi-permanent DSC 4x4 light. Have ruled it to the yaw sensor under the console. Have a used working one on order.

I just replaced my road worn ones and ended up with a few extras in the process. Ebay is your best bet but you need to be careful and ask the sellers the right questions otherwise you may end up with something you don't want.
What side are you looking for? and Xenon or Halogen? I'd be willing to part with one of my extra xenon units. PM me.
