Basic differences between F150 & F250??

I dunno what they use in southern BC but up north here they use some sort of calcium mix. Supposedly doesnt cause rust...as bad.
And I really doubt you'll need a new exhaust anytime soon. It might look rusty but it will probably outlast most of the rest of the truck. It is stainless of some sort

Dave,
The exhaust has holes in the pipes and I've actually had the passenger exhaust pipe come off the back of the muffler (fixed by myself), so it's not Ford's fault there. The system upstream of the muffler is just fine, but that aftermarket crap and any exposed steel (rear axle, leafs) is rusting- as it should. It rains here, so it's no paradise, but I bought the truck with most of that rust and it was a southern BC truck for its first couple of years... Kamloops, I believe. The chromed steel wheels are fine though....

I guess I shoulda looked at your gallery
Aftermarket exhausts unless they are stainless ($$$) usually dont last too long.
Where abouts is Olalla?

Dave-

Olalla is across Puget Sound from Seattle. So it is a ways away from Terrace. Something like 500 miles I believe.

We have many used vehicles that get imported from Canada in the northern US. The exchange rate and vehicle prices allow for the dealer to make a pretty good chunk of change when they buy from Canadian auto auctions. My truck was purchased for roughly $23000 Can, with the exchange rate at the time (iirc) it was around $14500 US. I bought it for $21000 US, that was the middle of the road between wholesale and retail values for the truck at the time. The dealer pocketed a great deal of money, but they still sold it cheaper than I could have gotten it from any other dealer in the area. As long as people are willing pay the higher price, the dealer will charge it.

Cheers

-Kerry

Terrace is probably about 6 or 700 miles straight north of where you are...I think.
I'm hoping that with the Cdn $ improving against the US $ that not so many trucks will get brokered to the US. I want to buy a truck and all the good ones get sent south as soon as we get them because they get such big money for them but it seems that is finally changing

kdwellsr is starting off with a positive reputation.
I have a 98 F250 LD 4x4 7700# and on the door sticker axle location is a 26. Can anyone tell me what the ratio is? The owners manual states it is either a 331 or 373 and I'd kinda like to know which it is? It is a extended cab and I see it has a trans cooler and frame mounted trailer hitch and factory 7 pin lights... and 7 hole 15" wheels.
