Subject: ADMIN: Political Content

A few of the lists have had political content posted lately.

Do not use the lists for posting political content unless it
directly affects our Ford truck hobbies, and then only after
forwarding it to me for review first.

Discussing on-topic political content, such as crusher laws,
emission laws, highway safety, regulations, off-road laws,
etc. are acceptable.  Discussion of these topics requesting
members review pending bills and lobbying efforts should be
forwarded to me first.

Discussion of political candidates is off limits.

Sorry to take this stand, but its been abused lately, especially
with the pending election around the corner.  I don't care if
its conservative or liberal, it doesn't really belong here.
If you feel you must talk about it, use the General Conversation
forum on our web site where very little is considered off

Subject: Re: tire question

For real all-terrain tires I like the BFG ATs.  I've got 245/16s on my pickup
that cost $90 each because they were cosmetic blems.  I've got BFG AT 235/15s
for my Bronco that came from Sears at about $120 each.  On my Wagoneer I use
Sears Trailhandlers that are supposed to be all-terrain tires but the tread
is more like an aggressive street tire.  They were about the cheapest I could
find at the time and may have been around $80 each on sale.

White spoke rims can be had for $25 to $30 each from Sears, Summit, etc.

My experience with retreads has been on heavy trucks.  They were fine for
relatively short trips, low speed, and moderate loads.  Heavy loads, high
speed, and longer trip duration made them fail more rapidly per mile.  Since
my usage was one that tended to tear up sidewalls, they made alot of sense

Subject: 7.3L POWERSTROKE?

Hopefully someone know this...

When did the powerstroke come out? I am looking into buying a '92-'96 ford
extended cab 4x4, but I am not sure when the powerstroke came out. Are all
7.3L engines, powerstrokes?
