Sparky.....I don't pay attention to the numbers from Ford. I had to move some gravel a while back. I pulled into the yard and told the guy to fill it up. Unfortunately I was a little limited because...

I remember seeing somewhere where the guy used some spacers in the front, and maybe the hubs are different so he could use the wheels.

Right now I have a 1997 F-250 HD, with 351 and auto OD. It is basically all the truck I need, except I would rather have a dually. I have the standard cab and 8' bed so it does get a little work out....

Did you ever make that swap?

I really would love to have the additional weight carrying capacity. Right now I am pretty much limited to 3 tons of gravel in my F250 HD. As for the losing traction, I think that depends on the type...

I love old tractors. I have a 1953 Massey TO-30 and everytime I start it I am amazed how it runs. It will sit there and idle all day and never miss a beat. Not many cars or trucks will do that. As...

I have a 1997 F250 HD with the heavy duty truck rear end. Has anyone here ever changed one of these into a dually? Since my truck is a 2wd and I spend a lot of time in the woods, I would like the...
