Hi fellow Ontarians. I've recent picked up an '89 e350 at auction to convert to a camper. More details in the general introductory thread. Nice to see some 'local' representation on the board.
I'm looking to swap out the RA gears for something a little taller, where would y'all recommend I look for parts? I live in Toronto, the vehicle is near Barrie. I checked with Cooksville auto (or Cookstown?) who have done well for me in the past but they only sell the whole rear assembly. I just need the pod.
Back to reading through all the great posts here, and getting generally edumacated on all things ford-truck.
