David, Thank you for the deal on the trailer! I was looking for a while. I can't wait to see it in person!!!

I wasn't going to post this until the boat is done. I drove poor Chris from Grafik EFX absolutly nuts. He did about 20 proofs for me. He said he never changed a design so many times. I told him I want the most outragous this he has ever come up with. I think he did it. All the paints are Pearls, Flakes,Chemelons and candy apples. Guardado said they never did anything this exotic. The only problem, it won't be done for Sarasota. They alrady have 240 hours of prep wrok. With the paints we are going with the the boat surface has to be flawless or it will look like crap. They are doing an incredable job soo far!! I'd rather it perfect then have them rush. What do you think??

Didn't you buy a 39? The paint says 42. Just a question.

42 was my race number as in Lubejobs42. It it's going to says 39 Mti on the wings by the windshield. The 42 is not going to look the way it shows. You will only see it from certain angles. It is going to be just like the goast flames.

No problem at all, temps are within reason on the street file pulling this load up a giant slope. The power is more than most would want without destroying your truck. If need more when not towing there is the Xtreme Race, which I use most of the time 8k and under approx 420-430hp and approx 800 tq. I have not added head studs or additional tranny upgrades, but drive it fairly sensable. I also have the Edge on the other 06' F250, great product for shift on the fly, but in the upper hp levels defuels to much, but has a lot of great features. One thing I have noticed, Ive always had dually's, the F250's do the job, but when windy or going buy semi's the dually is just a little more stable. I am uncertain with those tires and the set up you have. Keep us informed, thanks Jeff.

BTW that paint job is KILLER.
Chris is a good guy, when I was designing my last 4300 before the storm we were real close. I just got to get back with him once I decide which boat I'm going with.

Thank you. I have been looking at f650's. I plan on doing quite a few runs that are pretty far (havasu, Lake Cumberland, 1000 Islands etc). If the Excursion dosen't pull really nice, I'll have to get the bigget truck.
