AfterMarket

Yall might be seeing my name a lot since I have joined but don't hate on me...I'm just trying to figure my truck out...

When I got the truck the owner told me that it had a lot of mods (trans, transfer case, torque converter, intercooler).

I got under the truck today and took some pictures. Anybody be able to tell me if this is an aftermarket transfer case or stock (took picture of the tag that was on it). Gear ratio says 2.72.

Also do you know if my steering setup is aftermarket or stock. Not a lot of fords around here to look at lol.

Re: AfterMarket

There isn't really an "upgraded transfer case" I don't know why he would have told u that, that looks like a standard transfer case I'm not sure if its the oem unit in ur truck without looking into more but it's no fancy upgrade, as for the transmission there really isn't a way to tell besides seat of the pants feel unless you had someone open it up and look. As for the suspension, again to me looks stock, Is the truck lifted? Maybe one of the older vets could chime in if I'm mistaken. And the intercooler u don't have any pictures so couldn't tell ya.

Honestly if your really concerned take the truck to a local shop an just ask to have a mechanic, one who knows what he's looking at, take a look at the truck and drive it.

Thanks for the input. One of the reasons I been wondering about the suspension and the steering because here lately the truck has been hard to keep straight. But yes the truck is lifted just with blocks though.

Re: AfterMarket

The blocks on the front are a big NO NO unless they are bolted to the leaf pack.

They have holes in them that the leafs and the base that it sits on slide in. It was a pain in the ass to install but once they where in they weren't coming out.

Re: AfterMarket

Ya blocks in the front need to go, I would look into something like a icon drop spring hanger as a better solution and front the sounds of it u may just need an alignment

Why is this and I don't have the money to put into a true lift and I hate how my truck sits when i don't have the blocks in the front.
