We all know what a Cummins looks like INSIDE the truck. Here's what one looks like OUTSIDE the truck compared to a 4yr old. My kid is a head+ taller than most kids her age. Can't imagine why, since I'm 6'5" and her mom is 5'7"?!?!? View attachment 8429

I know what your talking about, My son is only 4months and he is 27.5" long. But you know having a dad who is 6'10" and a mom who is 6'2" might have helped. Doctor thinks he should be 7'+.

Engine plans are;

Today is goes out for a cob blast and fresh paint job. I used wine bottle corks to plug all the sensor holes. The valve cover is all taped off and so is everything else that I don't want painted. We are going with Concept black high gloss. This thing will shine like a million bucks. I thought about going with a different color like but they are going to be too hard to keep clean. Red was a first choice, Arctic Cat Green was the second, and I even thought about Ice Blue.

Yesterday and the day before was Christmas in May around here. Ups and Fed Ex were going nuts. I got my new BD flex plate from [email protected] from the forum, a new polished HTT turbo and downpipe from Wally, JacktheBear3, at FTE diesel, and a vacuum pump repair kit from fixinrams.com. ATS is sending me a new manifold since my new 7 week old one was starting to rust. Now I'm just waiting on Suncoast to send me back my repaired t/c.

Taking lots of pics and will keep you all posted...

Here's the other thing I'm seeing, very few boys sniffing around here later down the road. The girls on my dad's side of the fam are tall so she should be also. I figure about 5'10"-6', and boys don't like seeing girls who are taller then them, which is not a bad thing if you know what I mean:gun2:!!

The water must be more contaminated than I thought:wow:. I graduated high school 18yrs ago and was 6'4" and weighed 130 sopping wet with my clothes on. A 100lb 8yr old?!?!? He, right now, probably could have kicked my :butt: back then:lol3::lol3:!!
