    Automatic Tranny flush, HD gmc 6 liter.

    Ok, So my 99 HD, 100k miles, is delaying (5-10seconds or so) shifting into overdrive on the highway and sometimes even shifting into 4th. I thought I might get a flush done and put in some synthetic tranny oil. Any of you guys had anything good come from flushing? One guy told me to just drain...

    Cattle as a tax break. ?'s

    This is more of what I had in mind. Initially I am getting in to the cattle business for just that, a business. All the things that can be wrote off during the year that can be tied to the business will be done as that. I plan on turning a profit once my herd starts to grow. Thats the bottom line.

    2500 hd 4x4 question

    I also own a 6.0 4x4, though I do love the power and throttle response, I too long to own a diesel. The costs are much higher but the next truck I buy will be a powerstroke. Even though it wont pay off until beyond 100k miles, I truly believe I'll drive it for well beyond 10 -15yrs or so...

    Cattle as a tax break. ?'s

    I understand the code of writing something off does not become free. I've got a finance degree and know a little bit of how money works. When the only thing I have to write off against at the end of the year is mortgage interest, the expenses from a cattle operation will be a much greater...

    Cattle on land away from home, how far is too far?

    Oklahoma winters, can be harsh, can be mild. Of course I would never ask them to do that, I was raised out there so I have a little bit of knowledge of what to expect. I will probably invest in a tank and a heater beforehand.

    Cattle on land away from home, how far is too far?

    I will actually have a similar situation to some of you here after reading this thread. The land is occupied by my mom and her husband, both healthy adults that have some experience with dealing with cattle. They used to have 12 head out there and after they(the cows) got too old they sold...

    Cattle on land away from home, how far is too far?

    So I am thinking of putting cattle on my family's land that is right now a 45 minute drive from my house. Please post how far some of you commute to your cattle. Any comments are appreciated, thanks.

    Cattle as a tax break. ?'s

    Just have a couple quick questions concerning taxes. I've got a little bit of land that I can run about 20 head on comfortably. My question is, if I get started this year with say 5-10 head, is it still possible to get a tax break? Is there an over under on head count that must be met before...

    Chevy 2500 HD gas?

    I've got a 99HD ext cab 4x4, cant get 14mpg to save my life. It does pull like a bat outahe// though. Love the sound and response of the gas engine. It has been a great truck, 13mpg rain or shine is what i've come to accept.

    critters tearing up bottom of barn!!

    the damage is very low and on sides that are not exposed to the horses. will the mothballs do the trick? i can drop them in the walls, that seems to be where they are going.
