110 guys take note, we removed a few mirror killers in the tightest spots, so a bit more forgiving of your line. A bit.

Same time frame as parents weekend.
I may drop in Thursday or Friday and then off to JMU.
Since the Isuzu 4JB1-T has the power to go down the highway @ 80+ MPH and returns 35 - 38 MPG with ease, going on long trips is not an issue.
We drove roughly 500 miles to JMU and back and had about 1/4 tank of fuel left over during last weekend.

As a JMU parent let me make a huge recommendation. Do not go at the open house weekend!!!! The hotel costs (if you've already made reservations) are doubled. Traffic is horrible and there are many activities you must be registered for prior to the event. I'd suggest going up the following weekend to spend time with your freshman. It would be far more enjoyable and you can likely still fit in a football game (check that schedule) if you so desire.

Either the F250 or the Disco (since I didn't let Taylor take it back to school yet). I've just got to figure out why there is a rough start issue (hot or cold) at times. I swapped out the IAC so I'm looking a possible fuel filter or pump issues.

Doug, Yeah, a rust free body and chassis.

------ Follow up post added August 27th, 2015 12:39 PM ------

On a side note, I have a crap load of RRC lights, electrics, mirrors, door cards, body panels, window frames, doors, etc. I'd love to sell some off at MAR. PM me if you've got needs.

I'll throw this out there. The NE Commuter train starts in Lynchburg Va-runs to Boston and ends in Lynchburg Va every day. Anyone that wants to attend but not make the drive, take Amtrak down I'll pick you up the night before, shack you up, and give you a ride to MAR about 2hrs away and drop you back with Amtrak @ the end of the event.
