My front bumper is starting to rust, what should I change it to? I hope to save up enough money to get a new paint job later this year. Should I have it painted to match the paint as well?

This is my '97 F250HD. I wasn't wild about a 2WD 3/4T at first, but now I love it. 99% of my driving is street and even last winter with 10" to 12" of snow it still did fine with some weight in the back. If I need a 4X4 I just take the wife's 5.0L AWD Mountaineer.

I'm checkin in here. 92 f150, 138k miles. It was cheap (1200) and runs awesome. Just normal wear and tear upkeep. I do want, one day, to convert it to 2wd. But its a keeper.

I prefer the 2wd for towing and hauling. The 4WD can't turn as sharply and often feels less controlled when going down steep grades with heavy trailers. Just my $0.02. If you look through the PSD forums, you'll see I'm not alone either

For some of us, 4-wheel drive is like wearing a parachute 24/7 & never-ever getting in a plane. My 2wd suits me for what I need it to do & I don't have to carry around all those extra parts, their complexity, weight or deal with the breakage.
