I'm looking for late model Ford truck owners in the north
metro Atlanta area to have their truck become the Ford
Truck Enthusiasts project truck. I have some vendors interested
in supplying free products for the project trucks, sort of
like the product write-ups you seen in the truck mags.


The two things required:
1. it must be a late model truck
2. I must be present at the installation of items in order
take photos and notes.

The following trucks are needed:
1. Late model F150
2. SuperDuty
3. Explorer
4. Expedition
5. Excursion

Email me at kpayne ford-trucks.com if you're interested.
Currently, only #1 and #2 are scheduled for the free
stuff, but I'd like to have the someone ready for the
other models. I'm supplying the 2000 Ranger (heh, can
you blame me? :-) )

Admin, Ford Truck Enthusiasts

Actually it turns out that my power steering pump itself has been leaking
and is in need of replacement. As I mentioned in my original post,I didn't
think much of the noise the steering was making because it's not loud...sort
of a hissing when the wheel is turned...It wasn't until just recently I
washing the truck and I saw fluid stains on the fender well liner on the
driver side front wheel. Then I opened the hood and saw the fluid splattered
about the pump. A few weeks ago when I installed a K&N filter, I didn't see
any fluid inside the engine compartment, so I know this is a fairly recent
thing. So, for you SD owners, check to make sure your power steering pumps
aren't leaking fluid inside the engine compartment.

I was in the process of installing a set of rancho 9000 shocks and I
discovered that my spare tire has been destroyed by rubbing of the sidewall
and the frame of the truck. The truck's under warranty (31k miles). I
have checked the tightness of the cable periodically but it still didn't
hold the tire securely in place. I am going to visit the dealer on Monday.
Does anyone use a bedmount they would recommend?

I just cut out a piece of cardboard to match the tire. Fixed the problem,
when I placed it on top of the tire.

I'm interested in some opinions on the cab sun visors - the kind that gets
mounted outside just above the windshield. I've seen a Lund one advertised,
and JC Whitney has one as well. What has been your experience with them, in
terms of durability, ease of installation, price, etc. I like the looks,
but have never been in a truck with one - does it hamper your vision upward?
Thanks.

Upon closer inspection the tire didn't get rubbed to the point where rubber
was missing but it is deformed with indentations where it contacts the
frame. I took it off and I'll see if it rebounds. The cardboard trick
sounds good Larry. The rancho shocks have improved the ride significantly.
Now I have to figure out where to install the remote on the dashboard.
