Subject: Bronco II/Explorer wheel question

I have an '88 Bronco II XLT with the stock steel wheels w/ trim
rings. After living several winters in
Ohio and Michigan, the wheels are rusting a bit and the trim rings
dented from occasional curb encounters.

I'm thinking that a set of aluminum 15'' wheels from an Explorer would
look good on my Bronco, but wondered
if there are any differences in front hub size etc (since my Bronco has
manually locking hubs, and most Explorers
are automatic).. I like the 5 spoke 'swirl' style wheel..

In a message dated 98-04-26 17:08:45 EDT, you write:

wheel spacers and who would offer these, price, etc >>

Discount Tire also has wheels spacers. I went with 1/4" wide and they were $6

I have a '92 Ranger XLT with the factory speakers in the doors. Not sure
what company made them for Ford that year, but the sound is great. Good
highs AND lows with out distortion. I think it is by far a better place thn
the dash. You get better sound and don't have the sun (here in FL) drying
out the speaker.

As far as a good speaker, Jensen are good and inexspensive.If you want
to spend $$ go with Bose or Infinitty(sp?). Check with a local car audio
store for what they recommend.

Good Luck,
Jeff Baker

Anyone have speakers mounted in their doors on pre-'93 Rangers?

Subject: ADMIN: Server update and FTE additions

Lots of Ford Truck Enthusiasts news below, please read!

Web site: nearly working 100%. Chat is still broken.

New list server: I have new live versions of the lists working on
the new server. Digests are not working yet. As soon as the digests
are working, all the lists will be moved over and instructions sent
out. Commands and posting methods will remain the same, only the
addresses will change. The web site form and FAQ will also be updated.

As soon as the new lists are working then the following items will
get the attention they desperately need:

- -web site pictorial updates
- -web site link updates
- -free web space configuration. This shouldn't take long because the
new server is geared towards this. Additional web space beyond
the free 300k will be available for $1/month per meg (my cost).
I have about 6 meg available for free web space (about 20 sites).
There is a voting form on the web site concerning web space,
your opinion counts.
- -new chat script (tests confirm that this one shouldn't crash like
the old one kept doing)
- -t-shirt pictures will be reviewed and winners announced. Design
won't begin until after the Pigeon Forge F100 Nationals in mid
- -A vendors section will be added to the page. This will be a
section that vendors can use to provide discounts to list members
and page visitors. We will get a small amount which helps to
cover our site expenses (they've gone up considerably) and pass on
the majority of the discount to you. The Working Mat will be the
first vendor in this section (they suggested this excellent idea).
More information will be available after details are arranged.
- -Pigeon Forge F100 Nationals Information (will be posted by this

We will no longer pay for additional lists!! So the following will
occur shortly:

- -Vote for Performance/Hot Rodding truck mailing list. This ought
to take some mail pressure off the 61-79 list (busiest list).
- -Wanted/For Sale List: Additions to the Classifieds section on the
web site will automatically get posted to this list. No more
browsing of the ads page if you subscribe to this list! You'll
know immediately if someone has the part you need plus you'll be
able to respond directly to the person who posted the ad.
