The new truck is light years ahead in terms of comfort, safety, and efficiency. Doesn't make any sense to me to go backwards, unless it means no more monthly payments. Even then, stuff will break and...

Camber always gets wonky on the TTB trucks when you back them up, it's how they are. If the front end is not sitting at the specified ride height, either add a helper spring (there was a TSB issued...

You're a little off. My automatic has the floor mounted shifter and auto locking hubs. They're a mechanical cam system that rely on torque from the front driveshaft to engage. Trans doesn't matter...

I dislike the auto locks on mine. In deep snow the "bang" when they engage is unsettling.

No. The air injection system does not have any negative impact on fuel economy unless the pump is binding or seized.

My 97 XLT has the smooth gate and two emblems, the oval and "F250 Heavy Duty". I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the "F250 Heavy Duty" badges were 97 only since the new body style brought...

I avoid deep water. All it takes is for the road to wash out or a sinkhole to open up and you're in big trouble. Driving home from a weekend of storm chasing we (my cousin and I) were going through...

Cool. Those aren't super duties though, the F-superduty was the next step up from the F350, DRW only and chassis cab only. The Superduty name was applied to all the HD trucks beginning in '99.

6.9, 7.3 IDI, and 7.3 IDI turbo would be the simplest swaps. A 7.3 Powerstroke would require the wiring harness and pcm, ideally a donor truck as well. Mechanically injected Cummins swaps are also...
