Love the Landie! And yes, it looks like the hitch is a little high for the trailer. I have towed quite a bit more than that with several F150s, including more than one with a 300/6. When towing,...

Completely different wheel bolt spacing so you'll need SD rims for that axle, meaning you'll end up with non-compatible wheels at either end. Also, you might notice it being a bit more sluggish with...

There are four brackets that attach to the seat frame that bolt directly to the floor of the Explorer. You remove and discard them, they are not reused. I had to drill one hole through the rear of...

BTW, there is some modification that you will have to do to both the seats and the 40/20/40 seat pan in all likelyhood. I had to cut/drill the rivets that hold the mounting brackets on to the...

I think you mean '97-'03 ('04 for the Heritage model or whatever they called the leftovers). I just fitted Explorer seats ('03) in my '94, and I couldn't be happier. The important thing is to check...

I was thinking the same, section the frame, find a 6.5 bed, and get a shorter driveshaft. And brake lines, and exhaust. But the parts all exist and are easy to come by. I'd be tempted but don't...

I just picked up some Explorer seats at the pick & pull for the F250. I couldn't find any truck seats, but the Explorer seats looked to be the right size, and they weren't worn at all. My old seats...

I really can't see that swap being worth the trouble. I've had both 2V and 3V 5.4s, and while they were both good motors, especially the 3V, neither will get particularly good economy in a F350. My...

About to take a long trip-lube questions

I've done a fair bit of searching on this, but I haven't found quite what I'm looking for. We'll be taking the F250 loaded up with 2800 lb. camper on 6k trip shortly. I want to change the...

I'd do gauges first. If you do the downpipe and exhaust first, you'll then want to turn up the fuel, and without at least an EGT gauge, you could cause some serious damage. As an aside, take a look...

I'd go with the air-sprung seat. If you remove enough leafs to significantly upgrade the ride, you'll end up with 1/2 ton capacity. Part of the SD ride issue is the massive unsprung weight of the...

400 HP out of a 400 will be a tall order. You would at least need pistons (low compression motor), heads ( the stock ones don't flow well enough for that power level), intake, headers, probably a...
