Info's in my sig...



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.

I'll post some of my 2wd. Who says only 4x4's can have all the fun eh?




All this because we had nothing to do one dreary afternoon.
