How to tell push button from 2wd?

Dunno when ford started with it... but how can i tell if a 92 F150 had the push button 4wd or was a 2wd? i know the manuals you could see the hubs sticking out through the center caps.. but dunno if and when ford started with the push buttons...

reason im asking is because im looking at a 92 club cab that appears to be in immaculate shape... but theres no interior pics so i cant see the dash... from the pics it looks like its got these center caps all around



and from the blurrzy pics it seems like it may have a 5.8 badging on the side.. (dunno if that factory or after market).. any info on what to look for on that as well..

Nice looking truck
It's a 4x2. the 4x4's of that era even with automatic hubs had them sticking through the center cap
If you look at the center cap from the back it has a knockout where the hub comes through.
All TTD 4x4 still had hubs.
in 97 they went to the independent front 4x4 suspension, and the hubs went back behind the brake rotor, shifted by vacuum

Here is a milemarker hub sticking through that exact center cap.
This truck had automatic hubs, but I replaced them with the milemarkers

thats what i was thinking but wasnt 100% sure... had someone telling me there was no way to tell the 2 apart from the outside and to me that sounded off... being 2wd aint a deal breaker... just was hoping for 4x4...

im seriously wanting to get this truck... i just dont know what to look for on it... did get a better pic when i looked at it on the computer... does say 5.8 on those badges.. (dunno if those are factory or not)... i dont recall ford ever doing that till later but then they were included in the main badging...

Can't really see in the picture, but 5.8 had dual 5.8 tailpipe.
I dont remember seeing motor badges on any of my obs trucks except the oil burners, and they only said diesel.

The truck is probably a xlt, could be a lariat
1/2 ton trucks had 4.9 5.0 and 5.8.
That truck is clean, but I'd want interior pictures
Good paint job can hide flaws

Still a nice truck. I'd be interested if I didn't have the eddie bauer
You have my number when you get closer. If nothing else call on a video chat and do a walk around

cant tell from the pics either if its duals... i know alot of them tended to swap out for straight back pipes whenever the exhaust had to be changed.. so dont see any coming off the sides like factory did...

f150 3.jpg

closer shot of the badge im talking about...or least clearer... i woulda liked some interior ones too but none listed... claims to have 203(im assuming thousand) miles on it... just says "203 and climbing as theyre still driving it.."

heres what it says in the ad
"Everything works smoothly.
Brand new tires, brand new brakes, brand new tonneau cover.
Engine works perfectly.
Oil change regularly maintained.
Miles run: 203 (still using it so miles will go up)
Reason of sale: planning to buy another car
Clean title"

5.8 is not a ford emblem, someone added it later.
I bought my 94 at 201,000.
Trans went in right after i bought it.. Pulled the motor at 233,000

Ball joint test get in a parking lot. Back up and turn, pull forward turn the other way an gas it a little, if it clunk put a set in. 4x2 ball joints take about 2 hrs including taking wheels off. Look at shock tower on front make sure the mount isn't rusted and shock pushing through. You will hear it clunk on bumps if bad.

92 is still r12, keep that in mind if you have ac troubles

Offer is still there if you want to look at it

had a feeling they werent... probably be the first thing i got rid of too lol... drivers door cant tell if its got some dirt there just under the window or if its a blemish... either way not enough to disinterest me...

the one pic looks like its got dual tanks too... theres a door infront of and behind the wheel well... how did that work?? was there a switch or did it pull from both tanks simultaneously??

no worries on the R12... btdt matter fact i still have my license for it... if i get it the first thing im doing is changing all the fluids like i always do with used vehicles...
