Last thing my rear window does not come down. The key does not work
and neither
does the switch. I have checked the fuse panel it seems to

The rear window also will not work if the tail gate is not shut all the way.
Sometimes
you have to shove it real hard to activate the switch.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Tire size

Hello,

I've got a 1994 F-150, auto, 2wd, shortbed, and it's about time to
change the tires. Currently the tires are BFG All-Terrain 30 x 9.5 on
the stock rims with no body/suspension lifts. I have no problems with
this tire size, even though it's a bit larger than the stock size.

My question is--can I put a larger size tire on it, ie. 31 x 10.5, or is
that too big for the stock rims and/or presents clearance problems? Any
disadvantages to going to this larger size?? I don't want to go to a
tire shop and have the guy say, "yeah, it fits so it's ok--that's all
you need to worry about" and 100 miles later the tire falls off!

Thank you,
Jon

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Window Seal

While we are on the subject, is it possible to change the window seal
in the track? I am talking about the stuff inside the door. Mine is
completely weathered and gone, so the window will fall into the door
when it's all the way down and you hit a bump. I can't tell if theres a
way to change it, or do you need a special tool to get down in there and
pull out whats left?

Thanks
Casey

A little big for the stock rims ( I would suggest going to an 8" rim) but
the 31's fit nicely,a second suggestion for "clearance" off roading is to
get a set of 2" over or lift coils for
the front end (cures the dreaded 1/2 ton sag with the advantage of more tire
clearance)...
