I have a used but as good as new trans pan for up to '07s with Torqshifts. Always lived in CA and never seen salt, etc. It's free, but you have to pay whatever shipping is via USPS to you (I'll box it up ). Oh yeah, it'll have the magnetic drain plug/washer too...
PM me if interested...

I travel a lot with my (2) old dogs (14 yr old male and 11 yr old female) Labs. I want to swap out the existing rear bench seat for one that folds flat so they can be more comfortable when travelling.
I take my Lab with me everywhere but instead of folding down the seat, I just laid a piece of thin plywood over the seat. It's supported in the front with another vertical piece of plywood set on the floorboard with a half-high perpendicular divider in the middle to keep it vertical. At the rear, I just slid three short 2x4 blocks between it and the seat to keep it level. Finally, I used a bunch of moving blankets to pad the top.
The only "permanent" connection are a couple of small L brackets holding the divider to the vertical support. The divider butts up at the back to the rise in the floorboard for the rear seat. The plywood platform just rests on the front support (and the seat), but it is rock steady. My 85-pound boy jumps in and it doesn't even move.
The platform can then be taken out in a second and stored behind the seat if I want to carry passengers. They would have a little less space for their feet since the front support blocks them from extending their feet up under the front seat.
Advantages: low cost - prolly spent less than $20 for the plywood and brackets. Nice storage area under the platform on the floorboard, even longer items fit in over the half-high divider. The rear seat provides a nice cushioned backrest instead of the bare metal cab. Can also fold the front bench forward to access a small area in front of the vertical support. The result is a bigger platform, I assume, than a folded-over seat -- my big dog can sleep on his side with his legs outstretched. The platform sits lower than a folded-over seat so my boy has more headroom.
Disadvantages: That might be a high jump for your older dogs (my guy is only 4), and the platform prevents the dog from jumping into the floorboard first, then up. I figure that once my guy gets older, I'll just stow a footstool that I can throw on the ground to boost him up.
Looking for a pair of OEM headlights that'll fit a 2000 F250SD, the clear type if possible. Previous owner had some bad smoked lights I need to replace. Please PM me if you can help.
I have a set from where I put 06 lights on. They are yours if you want them. My zip is 28779 to find out shipping cost.
E99 XL 5.4 5 speed 4X4 SCLB.
Mods are 06 Headlights, 09 Taillights, 285-75-16, Electric heated tow mirrors (gotta figure out how to hook them up). And various parts from about 10 other trucks. Gotta love my Beast of Burden.
Anyone have the center caps off a 2005 dually fx4 kingranch? I seem to have lost one of my rear ones somewhere between home in Pasco fl and my final destination of jacksonville nc, no idea where just noticed it when I got to my destination. I'd be willing to get the whole set (if anyone has them) if you don't want to break up the set, one of my fronts have a nick anyway.
