    Awwww.... you got yourself a Baby truck for Montana. Should have gotten a 3500 dually. It is a nice truck.

    Eh, Ford. . . you'd have been better off with a Toyota, Chevy, Honda or GMC. . . . . but it'll be good for 3 years or until the warranty ends.

    7:19 The glee on a Brit's face when behind the wheel of a real pickup truck. Made me smile. I had a 2002 with a Triton, and now have a 2012 with a Coyote, and they were/are both solid trucks. 40 years of being the best selling truck in the U.S. Excellent choice.

    bad form on the guy using his hand to hold the board while using a nail gun, if that gun goes off and the nail misses there the nail goes into his hand (had this happen to a friend) also another pointer is when filming or watching never stand in the path of the nail. i worked with a guy that got hit in the eye and is now blind from a nail that went stray and hit him, it didnt go in his eyeball but it shattered his safety glasses and shoved a chunk into his retina.

    Constructive criticism I do believe as an American stand point of view if you did like the ford better then go ahead but you may pay more in repairs but chevys would have lasted longer and personally I believe look better.

    FYI: I noticed that you still have a lot of "SLAP" or echo in your shop. You should mount some noise-deadening panels on the ceiling. It will stop the sound from bouncing between the floor and ceiling. Of course rubber anti-fatigue mats in some of the workspaces might help too.

    Ya know...I've always found it funny how bad GM and FCA people hate Ford. Cause I have a Ford, yet I'm pretty much indifferent to GM, and FCA is a joke and not worth the time to hate. Cause let's be honest here, you don't really have that deep of an emotional reaction to something unless you're at least a little insecure about it. And when you read the comments, you realize that the only real ammo they got is how many negative acronyms you can make with the name. Just a thought.

      Yeenosaur 2 months ago +9

      +Darkmax992 That is quite the opposite of what I've experienced. America is far more conservative than most Brits can handle hence why they are so critical of America. They think having to get a license to carry a knife in public is alright and they think guns are horrible. Trump is not the problem.

    • Darkmax992

    Alec, welcome to the USA. Montana is one of the most beautiful States in the Union. Not sure where you're located, but if you get a chance, you should look up Dave Engles on his "Engles Coach Shop" channel. He rebuilds horse drawn wagons (of every size) and does all of the iron forging as well. One of my favorite channels. Check out the Borax Wagon series...simply amazing work.
