Fifth will be no problem, I've pulled more than that with no issues. I do tend to alter my shift points to higher in the rev range, but my truck likes 60-65 loaded which is just over 2k in fifth,...

The Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) look really nice. We were parked next to one in Georgia at a rest stop, it looked to be close to a foot lower than our Lance, which I imagine must reduce all sorts of nasty...

We had a nice Northland Polar a few years ago. I don't know that you find them outside of the Western U.S. As they are out of Boise. Nice unit rated for four season use, heated tanks, underfloor...

I'd look at the radiator cap, too. And probably replace the thermostat, mine was stuck part way open so it ran too cold with no load, and way too hot with a load. But the cap may not be holding the...

No, the '94.5 and newer is the same, the '93-'94.5 IDI turbo was a completely different motor from the PowerStroke.

It's funny, I remember my dad and his friends lamenting how much lighter built the new trucks in the 70's were compared to earlier models. You know, "cheap, flimsy bumpers, thin sheet metal, frames...

My local Napa caries both the plastic and metal replacements. My original broke, so I replaced it with another black plastic one. That lasted 6 months, and always felt like it would snap. It did,...
