Compatibility...

You can also upgrade to the newer style used in the 94-96 trucks. They seem to be more readily available via online sellers & are (at least the basic units - not the premium ones with the remote...

The axle change noted in my post from earlier this year has been completed and results are in: 18-19 MPG so far. No other changes other than to replace the factory 2G alternator (also known as the...

Overall costs of operation...

The best tool in your arsenal is the one behind the wheel: Drive sensibly, anticipate stops to minimize brake use - all the things you've heard since before you got your license. Beyond that? Good...

"Pivot on your good foot"...

If you are replacing the axle arm pivot bushings you will be better served by just removing the shock & spring so that you can get the entire axle arm out to press the old bushing sleeves out & the...

Here is my [old school] "app": self designed grid paper; one design for tracking mileage (on white paper) and another for tracking maintenance and upgrades (on yellow paper). I first laid these out...

Hole-y Toledo...

These open-section bumpers, I believe, first appeared in late 1994 on 1995 PSD models; expanding to all higher trim level trucks in the 1996 & 97 model years. The same stampings were used throughout...

Removing the mystery of shroud...

The heavy duty radiators are nominally ~2" thick while the standard units are only about 1". Remember, that is core thickness not tank thickness. Many radiators with 1" core will have the...

Beefier F150...

Yes, the ZF should fit into your F150. You will need the proper cross-member from an F250/350 to mate to the ZF (or build your own if you are so inclined & tooled up). You will need a custom rear...

Leaf renewal... "Spring"time?...

You can just replace the missing bolt with a hex head (preferably grade 8) SAE of (I believe) 3/8" or 7/16", length determined by number of leaves in the pack. I rebuilt a pair of spring packs a few...
