Dont know about your towing capacity, but I can give a litle advice =
about tires and truck tops. As far as tires go you get what you pay for. =
Some might argue with this but this is what I noticed on my 93' 4x4 =
Ranger. When I put the first set of 31's on the truck I had just lifted =
it and purchased new rims so money was a little tight. I bought an =
off-brand set of mud pattern type tires and the truck was real bouncy =
and had terrible traction on wet pavement. I also had the same problem =
on another 4x4 I used to have with Firestones and Kellys. The last set =
of tires I bought, I spent the money and bought a set of BF Goodrich All =
Terains. When I hit the first bump in the road I noticed a difrence - it =
was alot smoother. I'm shure there are some other good brands out there =
but thats the one I tried and liked the best so far.
As far as truck tops go there are several brands out there, off the top =
of my head here are a few - Raven, Brahma, Leer, Astro-Glass. The Raven =
is the only one though that does not have a little metal trim piece at =
the bottom where it mates up to the bed. Take a look at them they realy =
fit great on Rangers. Hope this helps.

Josh,

Thanks for the towing info. Although, if the rebates on '97's keep rising,
I may just save some money and buy one.

Camping World used to show something exacly like this in their catalog but
I have not seen it for the past couple of years, so I don't know if it's
still available. It had a swing down feature that allowed you to open the
back door of your Camper (or your tailgate) without having to remove the
tire. It looked rather flimsy for a 33" tire, though. I ended up getting
a custom-made bumper that hangs the spare on a swing-away similar to what
you see on the backs of SUV's.

Subject: Warmingup Problem with 1992 F150 6 cyl 4.9L

My truck has a problem as the engine is warming up.
Once the engine reaches a certain temperature, it starts
to run rough for a short time and buck a little.
The problem goes away when
the engine comes up to normal operating temperature.
I have brought it to the dealer twice,however they have
not been able to figure out what is wrong.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions?
Regards,
John Dee

Josh,
I asked you this before but never got a reply, it was a while back when =
we were having some technical problems. Anyway you said you had a 97' =
Regular cab XLT 4x2 with a 4.0 and a 5-speed. I'm sure being in the =
buisness you got a deal on it. But about what did it cost or what could =
I expect to pay for one, and did you have to special order yours? I've =
never seen any of the regular cab 2x4's with anything other than the 4 =
banger in them. And if it's not a hassel how much weight will it tow? =
Anyway thanks.

Need help locating a new engine for my '85 F150 302. I've been told
there is a place to order new (not rebuilt) Ford engines. I've found a
couple of places that sell chevy, but no Ford.
