I have a Silver 93 F150 ext cab 4x4. I have only had this truck about 3 weeks. I just recently got rid of a 97 F150 2 wheel drive and I must say this 4x4 is a much better truck. I love the 302 much better than the wimpy 4.6. I was curious as to any particular problems with these trucks. I know trannies are kinda common in Fords, but I can say the fluid in this one looks great, and it shifts fine. I am kinda wanting to bypass the smog pump and get some more power. I know smog pump bypass works great on Mustang, but dont really know for sure what kind of belt to put on this thing to just bypass it witout a elim kit. How bout some exhaust? This thing is pretty quiet already, and it has no muffler, just a resonator to keep the popping down, but I would like a more powerful tone, and duals, since it exits on the right rear. What are some of your mpg that you guys are getting? I have figured mine to be getting around 14 or so, with 255/70-15 tires. I would like some bigger more aggresive tread, but need some ideas on what looks good. Thanks guys.

Without a lift I believe you could go with at 31x10.5x15 if not 32x11.5x15. Thats what my bronco would take back then. Check around in the F150 threads and get there input.
