    Those damn 6.4L engines have done more damage to the Powerstroke brand. The 7.3, 6.0, and 6.7 are monsters but that damn International motor has more problems than the other 3 combined.

    Watching you guys go from breaking parts every week to taking serious consistent times and building cars for a consistent 7 days of track time and 1000mile.rpadtrips has been amazing

    Do a Pimp My Ride thing. "Steal" Jamie's truck and do it up for him while he thinks it's stolen! :D

    Cleetus man you do you. Don't worry about the few people that wish they could be where you are and want to make you do what they would do if they were you. You spent the time making it here, you have the experience. You know best for your cars. I see this a lot in my youtube community as well. Growers will tell other growers what to do the same way, with little regard to what the owner of the garden has planned or has done. Everyone thinks their way is the right way.

    Was the Ram 2500 that saved the day have a Hemi or Cummins? 20k on a bumper pull trailer by a SRW is impressive.

    Cleetus, I don’t know how you can maintain the schedule you keep, even without having emergency issues like the one you had. Going to school and all the rest, all I can say is that you will never fail, working as hard as you do and that kind of effort becomes contagious to the rest of the team as well, that will only boost the level of everything that you guys choose to tackle. I have been in the transportation business all of my working life and solving problems like the one you had and when you are able to make the impossible happen, it is really satisfying.
    I think the reason your channel is so successful is that your team comes across as regular guys and you yourself are either a great actor or you are genuine and I think that people really enjoy that about you, the viewers feel like they are there with you guys and your reactions to whatever happens, good or bad are genuine. That allows a connection with your viewers that so many that are trying to get a channel going seem to lack. Thanks for all the great content and I wish you and all your team continued and increased success, keep safe and may God bless all of you.

    Everyone saying that Jamie needs to get hooked up with new transmission.......

    Are you all forgetting the hard work the stock transmission did? And your idea of rewarding that, is to rip it out and replace it? C'mon that's no way to treat good parts that treat you good.

    When you take care of your stuff, it takes care of you. And vice versa, if your stuff takes good care of you, take good care of it. That's my philosophy.

    Maybe in the future if the stock one starts acting up or breaks, then hell yea, hook him up. Have it waiting packed on a crate somewhere until he needs one, then BAM surprise!

Yea you tell us before you make the hits what your plan is and for those that dont understand they just dont own a car or invest the time to understand how a car truly works and that nothing last forever especially when your going for them low 7 second passes stick shift. Man your a hell of a driver and my inspiration. Let her rip tater chip and bogg deep.
