No one has a source for new rear drive shafts? I already have a used one, so a junk yard is not on my list. I can find new front shafts all day long.

'03 X V10 rear driveshaft

My driveline has been vibrating for some time now. I changed out the rear u-joints with no improvement. I found the spline to be sloppy. I think I need a new driveshaft.

I think it is less an issue of sitting and more an issue of mostly short trips with few long trips that could be a problem for diesels. Though since the 7.3 does not have EGR etc, it may not be an...

I have been thinking the same thing about towing a 2 car trailer with the X and decided against. If I get a multi-car trailer, it will be a 3-car ramp style pulled by a dually. For now I will make do...

I think the 2000-2001 seats are more comfortabe than later seats, though I have gotten used to my '03. My '99 Superduty had the best seat ever.

Do you have power seats? Both my '99 and current '03...

I have a V10 with 3.73 gears. It is adequate for towing 7-8000 lbs. I would not want less power though especially if I was towing in hills or mountains. I would hardly call my truck "fast". I would...
