    Ford Fullsize Thread !!!!

    I don’t understand this thing you speak of....”Ford problem”. Those words....they just don’t go together correctly in a sentence. Perhaps you have accidentally typed that out in some alien or foreign language. Maybe excessive alcohol is to blame....maybe the stress of daily life has your mind...

    The working - camping OBS F-350

    I started out with this.... It became worth too much money and I recently sold it and purchased this.... No regrets. So it leaves me still with this....! So I’m looking at the things I would like to do to this old truck. I’m looking for inputs and opinions. To get you up to speed on the...

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    Was super excited to get my wheels and tires mounted up so I could put them on. Got three out of four on the truck and then when I attempted to install the last one....&#*€!!!! It was a 8 on 6.5 bolt pattern and not a 8 on 170mm. So off they came and the stock ones went back on. Should have a...

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    I got some stuff done on the new truck. Bought a bunch of Mobile 1 extended service full synthetic oil and a new filter. Changed the engine oil. Ordered a set of fender flares (because I like them and no other reason), got my tool chest in, ordered a new track bar and ball socket, and ordered a...

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    $17,250. Had 160,000 miles. 5 speed. Original paint. Very good condition. Did have a couple very small rust spots. I’ll say this.....I had people lined up to look at it. First guy that saw it-bought it. I came down very little on my price. I’ve seen them listed higher. I might have gotten more-...

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    I bought it! 2012 F-350. Drove from Nashville to central KY running 80 mph. Computer says 13 mpg. I’ll hand calculate soon. For now....lots of power. Huge usable rpm range! Locker works and the 4.30 gears are just fine. It’s night and day different than the obs I came out of.

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    Well.....it’s gone. I sold it today. I got what I was wanting for it. But it’s weird to me that it’s not mine. I was very proud to have owned it, and it served me well. I’m sure the new owner will like it. He seemed like a fine young fella. I’m lined up to look at a Super Duty first thing in the...

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    Thanks for the input. I won’t lie. There’s a big part of me that’s sad to see the obs go as well. But it just good economics. I love the truck, but I’ve drove it several years and it’s worth more than I paid for it. .......and I have two of them. So I still get to play. Thank you for the...

    97 F-350 CCLB build:

    Idasho- I hope I’ve made a good decision. I think I have. Currently I’m looking at 2012-2015 trucks. All are 120-150k. One truck in particular is a 12 model. It has 150k on it....which is the most I’d want. But- it has aftermarket bumpers front and rear. It has 4.30 gears and factory locker in...
