Subject: Tire size question

Ok guys, here is yet another tire question.

My Father in law had P265/75R15 Wilderness AT's on his 94 Ranger.
(It's a 4X4 Supercab with 4.0)

He needed new skins for state inspection and wouldn't wait for me to go
with him to get new tires.

He went to the local tire outlet here and came back with 31X10.50 15 LT
Apache AP's

Question #1 Is that size equal to the P265/75 ?

Question #2 Has anybody even heard of Apache?

I guess that they are somebody's "off" brand, but who?

The tread looks agressive enough for what he'll be doing, which is mainly
SE Pennsylvania snow storms, and maybe I can get it out on the beach down
in Delaware ;)

Oh, and yes we did hang onto the feeblestones in case they expand the
recall.....

Hey Tim, Bill and others,

Where specifically is the diagnostic connector for the ABS system? I
looked and looked under the dash but could not find anything. I took a
photo of what I think it could be, but I am not sure, and would like to
avoid grounding random wires.

The book and faxed docs speak of the orange/black wire. I took a picture
of what I think they *may* be reffering too.

Check out:

And look at the connector to the right of the steering shaft. It has a
orange/black wire going in and out of it, at a quick disconnect
connector. Could this be it?

Also, we mentioned chaffing. Check out this pic:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.jps.net/jmclaugh/Adam/wiring.jpg

It is of the spot where half of the harness wore through, and caused me
some great condusion and stuff when one day I was driving down the road
and she shut down. Until that time, I did wonder why the heck the rear
tail lights wouldn't go on for any reason. You can see how I soldered
everything and then heatshrunk it together.

As far as I know, it's all okay now.

Darn intermittants!!

Adam

I believe the 265s are 31 1/2 inches tall compared to 31 inches for the
31x10.50s.  Check www.tirerack.com .... they have comparison charts for most
size tires.

I have thought about that, but I'm afraid it wouldn't be good for me, I live
in a dirt road and that would pull in a HUGE amount of dust, especially the
way I drive on said dirt road.  By the way, do you know how to get the front
quarter panel off so I can get to the intake?
