Howdy!!! Just joined up from cartersville, g.a.
own a 95 ext. cab 4x4
My dad owned the truck for years and it is in excellent shape. he is very picky about his trucks. He decided to start looking for a 4-door 7.3l and i'm buying his ext. cab.
truck will be used as a dd, but will also be a tow pig for me and my g/f.
I have a 1983 toyota pickup that i rock crawl and trailer it to parks but that's not much weight, but the g/f barrel races and has a 32ft goose neck trailer with living quarters. so after you add 3 1,000pd horses. water in the fresh water tank, groceries and etc.... it's a heavy load.
just looking for common mods. gas mileage and towing. the trans was rebuilt by ford and had an 'upgrade' idunno if they put stronger springs in it, a slight shift kit, or what but it does shift very firmly. Other than that it's all stock powertrain wise besides a small chip that i dont think i'm going to run but he always kept it on tow mode. think it's a superchips programmer
will be looking for the FAQ, or using search to find common mods very soon.
any suggestions or questions just ask away. my names jesse
will post pics shortly
Forgot to mention the ole lady has a 07 4-door lariat 6.0, or should i have just not said that.... lol
