I can't speak for the pickup or the price, but I can tell you that I have 230K on my 2003 V10, and it still runs strong. Regular oil changes, two complete sets of sparkplugs, and three failed COPs....

brandon oma#692 et al, I deem that a darn good question, and one that I simply side-stepped by buying a manufactured solution with documented testing/results. However! Despite being in IT, I'm an...

HRTKD, I see a lot of the wings on the cabs of trucks rather than on toppers. While acknowledging that the further back the better, there's still likely some benefit to a wing, particularly if you...

R&T Babich, no disrespect intended by the "T," I assure you. :) The forum sometimes has hideous lag when loading pages and/or auto-saving, and an extra character can sneak in on me. The BAT had the...

HRTKD et al, the Airtabs can be bought as a "kit" (that's what I did) or singly. I didn't use all that I bought, but figured I'd have a spare or two (or ten), as well as be able to address the misc....

R&T Babitch et al, for good or ill (meaning it rides a wee bit rough for my wife ;)), the BAT is as heavy-duty an F-250 4x4 as generally available. Camper *and* snow-plow packages, gooseneck prep,...
