They are mobile so they will come do the work where ever you want. The =
guy that did the work for me was Carlos Arce. He had a pretty cool =
set-up. Had a van with a water tank and a generator so he brought his =
own water and power. Anyway give them a call.

My 86 ranger runs a 4" lift kit. When I took off my rear sway bar (
huge difference in travel and no change in road handling) the cable
running to my drivers side drum limits down travel. Does any one know
of a way to extend it. I could just cut the cable but then whats the
point of a cable only to one wheel? Any ideas?

I want more fuel capasity for my 86 ranger. I was thinking of getting a
tank out of a bronco II and adding it to the one I have now. Has any
one done this. What kind of problems would I have hooking up the Fuel
injection? Any help would be great.

Subject: FTE Small - Sun-Roof Leaking

Sorry if this has been written before but I am having problems with my new
1995 Explorer. When ever it rains the floor board is wet on the drivers
side. I looked to see if I could find the leak and I believe it is coming
from the sun-roof. I removed the trim between the headliner and the
driver's door and the headliner was wet also. Is there a tube that connects
to the drain hole for the sun-roof? If so I think it has come loose and how
do I put it back? I did blow air into the drain hole for the sun-roof and
the air came out by the head liner. This is why I think that the tube came
off. Help - my wife has been taking my car when it rains which is NOT good.
Thanks

Anyone interested in the 1998 Ford U.S. Truck Fest Series? I've
received a press release from Peterson publishing about this.
If there's enough interest I'll post it. Rather long though.

The Truck Fest mentioned earlier is a truck show that is going to be
at several locations around the USA. It's put on by Peterson Publishing,
publishers of Custom & Classic Trucks and several other truck mags.
It's not a classic truck show but a show for just about everyone.

It really belongs on our event guide but the release is too large
for it (1.5 pages).

If a few more members let me know they're interested it will get
posted.

Subject: FTE Small - Pigeon Forge lunch and get together

To everyone planning on attending the F100 Supernationals in Pigeon Forge,
Tenn. (show info is in the events section of the web site):

Regardless of whether we get our promised booth space there will be a
meeting of Ford Truck Enthusiast members in front of the Convention
Center, under the canopy. You can't miss it, the show is next to it
and there's a bazillion trucks on front lawn in front of it. This
meeting will be at 10:00am Saturday the 16th. The meeting will be
informal and I plan to be there from 9:40 until we decide to head out.
Bring a lunch and drinks, we'll find a place where we can go as a
group to watch to munch before and during the 12:00 parade of trucks.
Sorry we don't have solid plans but the town will be packed and every
restaurant laughed at us when we asked to reserve a table for 30+!

How will we recognize each other? Simple... point your web browser to

http://www.ford-trucks.com/pigeonforge.html

This page is simply a small text box you can print and pin to either
your shirt or hat. Its small enough not to look goofy yet large enough
to be easily recognized.

It says:

FORD TRUCK ENTHUSIASTS
TRIED, TRUE AND FORD BLUE

- -------------------------


Line is for putting your name there. If you do not have a printer,
simply put "Ford Truck Enthusiasts" on an index card and pin it to
your shirt. I plan to glue my printout to an index card and pin it
to my shirt.

Look for the big guy with the brown hair/beard.

Ken Payne, anxious list dad...

PETERSEN PRESENTS THE FORD U.S. TRUCK FEST

LOMBARD, IL-Your neighbor has one; you want a new one! Your kids can't get enough of them! More than two million tickets were sold to see them throughout the last year and more than 3 million were sold. They are everywhere! If there is not one in your garage, you will find a bunch in your local 50,000 seat stadium. We're talking about trucks and monster trucks, reaching an all time high in popularity in America.

In the last three years, Ford alone has sold more than two million trucks each year. In 1997, Ford had a record setting year, selling 2,248,793 trucks!

"Without a doubt, the explosive growth in the truck market over the last few years has been one if the biggest stories in business," said Ross Roberts, Ford Motor Company vice president and general manager, Ford Division.

Meanwhile, PACE Motor Sports posted its most successful season in Monster Truck history. More than a million fans attended the monster truck events in the last three months. The trucks are going faster, jumping higher, and the racing technology has grown by leaps and bounds taking the popularity and legitimacy of Monster Truck racing to a higher level.

Finally there is an event of epic proportions to quench America's need for TRUCKS and need for speed! Petersen Presents the Ford U.S. Truck Fest Series! It's the biggest family truck event series in history! This weekend event offers everything from monster truck racing, off-road racing, show and shine, manufacturers midway to kidzone. This carnival setting event offers fun and excitement for all ages.

PACE Motor Sports, produces the AMA Supercross Series and the U.S. Hot Rod Monster Jam events. In 1997, the concept of an outdoor event capable of showcasing the power and unleashed speed of Monster Trucks was brought to Charlotte Motor Speedway. "King Krunch," one of thirty trucks in competition, showed just what happens when a 10,000 pound monster truck reaches speeds of 50mph and hits five foot obstacles. After an end-over-end roll driver Scott Stephens safely climbed out of a smoking roll cage and waved to roaring standing ovation. A new sport and new event series was born.

Petersen, publishers of 4 Wheel & Off Road, 4x4 Power and more truck magazines and Ford have joined PACE Motor Sports to produce a weekend event featuring all things trucks to all truck lovers. The Ford partnership encourages truck lovers of all types to compete in the various classes or enjoy watching the racing. Petersen gives enthusiasts a chance to have their truck pictured in the national pages of 4Wheel & Off-Road, 4x4 Power, Custom Classic Trucks or Sport Truck magazines.

Set at the best speedways in the country, the monster truck racing is the fastest in the world with only the top U.S. Hot Rod competitors! The large, safe, outdoor track allows the trucks showcase never before seen power and speed in the U.S. Hot Rod Monster Truck Challenge.

The 4 Wheel & Off-Road Extreme Off-Road Racing and Trailmaster Ruff Trux competitions are open to anyone who has what it takes to bring their truck out of the suburbs and onto the dirt! The U.S. Hot Rod Mud Racing combines metal and mud in a challenging dragstrip of deep wet earth! The Custom Classic Truck and Sport Truck Show and Shine competitions will decide who has the hottest looking truck. Whether you crave to catch air at the worlds best speedways or show off your new truck paint job, cash, trophies, prizes, and the chance to get national exposure await competitors. Registration is available over the phone by calling 1-888-294-TRUX or on line at www.ushra.com.

In addition to the great competitions, Petersen's Presents the Ford U.S. Truck Fest offers The Manufacturers Midway for those truck shoppers who need just the right part. Watch trucks go from mild to wild, and see new product demonstrations. For the kids, U.S. Truck Fest offers The Extreme Kid Zone for hours of entertainment including BMX riders, games and rides including The Monster Truck Experience, where fans can actually ride in a real, full-sized monster truck!

Charlie Mancuso, President of PACE Motor Sports, says, "A truck event of this magnitude is what America is demanding. We are proud to produce this event and are confident that this will offer to truck lovers what the Olympics offers to sports enthusiasts."
