People swap 4 speeds into Broncos too. T-18 and NP435 are two that were used in Ford pickups. They won't require converting to a hydraulic clutch and might even bolt onto your stock bellhousing...

I'm no expert on driveshafts, but 72" seems pretty long for a single. Plus the fact that Ford used a 2-piece in that application originally. There may be better options now (so the advice to talk...

Given that the title of this thread is "Need some QUICK answers...", does 13 years later constitute "quick"?

Yeah, probably closer to 2". The F-350 needs room for the front axle to move up during suspension compression. The TTB geometry in the F-250 means that the front diff doesn't move nearly as much, so...

I don't have enough experience to comment on reliability or maintenance issues. But I had a 5.7L V8 in a 2008 F-250 and now have the V10 in my 2018 E-450 motorhome. Just didn't / haven't put enough...

I did that about 3 years ago. The highlights are in post #16 of my build thread (https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1380264-nothing-specials-97-f-250-ccsb-thread-2.html) with more details in a thread...

I've been thinking about the M/Ts for my Bronco. Four Wheel & Off-Road magazine sure likes them. Falken has been the Official Tire of their Ultimate Adventure a few times lately. And that's the...

Or it might be more than normal. The driver's door on my '97 crew cab did that, but I think it was mostly at the top of the panel / bottom of the window, and mostly when the window hit the top of...

Two main issues with the auto hubs that I'm aware of. One regarding maintenance, one design.

They can be a little finnicky regarding lubrication. Old sticky grease can make them not function...

Not sure where you got the 10K tow rating. Ford generally gave a GCWR rather than a tow rating. And from my '97 owners manual the PowerStroke had a GCWR of 16,000 with 3.55 gears or 20,000 with...

It's a 44. Ford put the Dana 44HD in even a lot of the F-250HD trucks (the ones with the full-floating 10.25" rear axle). It would've been very surprising to see a Dana 50 with a semi-float rear...

With the semi-float rear the front is almost certainly a Dana 44HD. The alternative would be a Dana 50. The hubs on a Dana 50 almost completely fill the center hole of the wheel while there's a...

I've done one tank, and with typical Minnesota rust it's definitely easier to drop the tank. But if you have a bunch of different things to do all at once (both tanks, maybe some rear axle work...

Change one letter and it's "Supercabs", which I think did get D50s. I'm guessing's Brad's spell check doesn't know Ford nomenclature.
