Sooner or later the exhaust studs will need to be done if they haven't been replaced yet. And I wouldn't swap in any motor without doing gaskets first. So how much will you spend to get the $1500...

I could be wrong, but I don't believe Ford offered tow mirrors for that generation of truck. At least, none that I know of. Maybe you could retrofit something? The add-on tow mirrors that slide on...

Question Considering a Transit Connect

We're looking at the first NA generation. We have outgrown our Mini, it's just too small for our dog if we carry anything else. We want to stay with a small footprint and light as we tow behind our...
