I had to send reps for the link at the bottom regarding the electric cab heater - great test(s)!

I prefer rural living myself - I'm guessing most people on the Super Duty forum value personal freedom...

Pull the panel underneath the steering column - it just snaps off. Over near the parking brake assembly will be a bunch of blunt-cut wires. Use a test light or meter to see which ones supply 12v when...

bigorosco, great looking truck.

Gone is the diesel clatter. Gone is the smell. I miss those things most of the time. On the other hand, it starts up well in the cold and has a ton of power.

The 275x65x18 factory tire is 32" or so...therefore you've made a fair difference. I used a GPS odometer app on my phone to clock miles to a destination compared to what the odometer on the truck...

The throttle plate has a full range of motion, although obviously it can never be fully closed or the engine won't run. There is no "idle control valve" like in a gas engine.

I have no opinion of Archoil - it could be good, could be bad, or could be useless. Just remember that the gentleman who is in all the videos on that website is sponsored by Archoil.
