Maybe, but that's because Fords are on the road so much more, and so much longer! Can't get in a accident, if it's up on a rack! :)

It only makes sense since the F100 was the #1 vehicle in sales too.
If it were number #3 in sales and #1 in accidents then I'd be worried!

HI! I am considering buying a 460 with an automatic trans to put in a two wheel drive '77 F150 for $500. The 460 only has around 1,000 miles on it. The truck currently has a 351W that needs rebuilt. Can anyone offer any advice? and does anyone know what the gas milage would be with the 460. It has a four barrel intake I would have to buy a carb for it.

Well, You could put a Blown 460 in there, but you would have to do alot of cutting and new suspension and stuff. Heh..=20

Largest or largest practical? A 302 shouldn't be too difficult.
I'd suspect you'll run into fender clearance problems with anything bigger. A 302 would give more than enough "ummmph" to a Ranger.

A more sensible way to look at the infomation is to take the number of trucks on the road, multiplied by miles driven, devided by the number of accidents. The total for each manufacturer is probably very close.
An easier way to get a better grip on the statistics is go to your nearest wrecking yard and look at the trucks, figure out why they are there.
I have seen more wrecked C-words than Fords.

Don't know this for a fact but this was discussed about a month ago and if I recall correctly the F250 will receive the new body style for 98. It may be in the Feb archives (on the web site).

Hi, I just joined the list and my name is Ryan. Anyway I wanted to ask this question about 84 Broncos. We used to have one but sadly it burned because of carb problems. My dad bought it new from the dealer in VA. And always had problems with the engine(mostly carb). Were the 84s ever recalled because of this or did ford just sweep it under the carpet?
I had been wondering for some time and thought someone one here might now.
I own a 71 F100 and a 71 Torino. thanks, Ryan

I sent out some SOS emails today, don't know if any of them made it to the list.
I'm currently doing the swap from a 3.08 to 3.55 and was confused when I opened it up today. Right behind the ring gear is a spur gear(?). It doesn't engage anything, but there is a sensor (magnetic?) coming in from the top/front of the pumpkin, directly on top of it. I can't figure it out.
I did however figure out the programable speedo problem and got it set right! Thanks for the help!
Oh yeah, one more question, Can I reuse the differential pinion shaft lockpin?. It doesn't look like it was a soft thread and it's gonna be loctited?

I am going to get my Ranger windows tinted, but cannot decide which tint.
Several people I talked to said the 5%, (I guess right above limo tint), would be dark enough. Others however, said go for the limo tint. What do you think? And how much will the tint itself cost, on average? How much should I pay someone to do it? And, if I choose to do it myself, any hints?
