    I cant reply to any of your messages yet. That's very frustrating, and I guess its b/c I need 5 posts or something... I will make some posts that actually mean something to acquire this status. Thanks for the truck link, I looked up the truck you sent me a couple days ago when you sent it and the posting was removed. However I did find my unicorn in Texas but haven't had time to set up a meet and greet and I hope to do so this week.

    Thanks for responding Toreador!

    YEAR 2005 4 x 4 and yes I could do a limited if it met the criteria.
    BUDGET -under $20 K or close to it if we have to go over
    MILEAGE -depends on location but ideally under 140 K
    COLORS; White, that darker Grey metallic, black, blue or Toreador red in that order
    MORE IMPORTANT than color is a CLEAN bill of health, stock susp & motor tune, options, (full steering controls with rear entertainment, 2nd row buckets (if possible), a RUST free chassis, & normal size tires to slightly larger tires

    I don't mind a trailer controller as long as suspension isn't worn out.
    I'm not afraid of the 6.0 but I know we need to do our homework b/c it can be a very $$ pit. Besides some necessary upgrades/bulletproofing that maybe that shop in Houston is the answer. "One mans trash is another mans dream" just as long as its not actual trash.

    Thanks again, let me know if you see anything. Hit me up if you need to know more or have any other questions.

    Hi Toreador_Diesel, I have a post "F-450 Tire Upgrade" in the "6.7L Power Stroke Diesel" forum. Can it be moved to a different forum? I'm not getting much in the way of replies. Maybe the Super Duty/Heavy Duty forum? Thanks for your help.

    Hey, how's it going? I saw this post by you:

    "Do what I did and get some lift shocks for your truck. My rear shocks actually belong on a 4wd truck with a 6-8 inch lift, but they still fit and ride so well. They were a PITA to put in, but it was definitely worth it!

    You can now get them with a lifetime warranty from Autozone...they'll have to order them, but it's worth not having to pay for them again."


    ...And I was just wondering how you knew the 5100s for a 6-8" lift would fit without issue on a stock height vehicle? I want the 5100s also, for my '01 7.3 Excursion, but as you know, they don't make them for stock height in the rears. Will the 5100s for a 4-6" lift work as well, or what would you recommend?

    Thanks you very much for your response!

    Hi, I have a rebuild thread I am trying to post and I would like to post the pictures along with it. It says I do not have the ability to post attachments, is this due to amount of posts I have? If so what is the count to bring me to the required amount? Is it at all possible you could help me out?

    Thank you
    -Shane
