A sales Idea
As some of you are aware I live in the sticks in farming land. Anyway was working on a farm on the weekend and was talking to a few farmers about the F series trucks, the long and the short of it is they love the car and the Turbo Diesel in general but the driveline is simply not strong enough and it blows gearboxes and diffs, several farmers had some last year and they all had to have new gearboxes and diffs fitted. They have since sold them and brought Landcruisers and Patrols.
How about a special series F Series truck with the following
Basic as you can get, throw on some canvass seat covers even.
4x4 Turbo Diesel 7.3lt V8
Heavy duty tyres and steels wheels
Steel sided checker plate back
Heavy duty Towbar
pump up rear shocks
strong manual gearbox (not like the one they have)
strong diffs (not like the ones they have either)
Call it the F150 or F250 "Primary Pack" or something similar, as in primary producer, advertise the fact it has superstrong gearbox and diffs to they know the problem has been licked and I reckon you would have a real seller on your hands.
