Anyways, after driving it...

    I have a 97 f250 4x4, pulled the gauge cluster to clean it up and change incandescent to led. Before pulling the cluster the right side of speedo and left side of rpm wasn’t illuminating, assumed it was bad bulbs. During bulb swap I did not pull anything but the gauge window off to buff up and...

How can I correct that alignment? Sway bar bushing/mount positioning? End link length? Thanks in...

    Might have to change out my powertrain computer aka PCM but wanna make sure it’s truly bad first. Is there a performance one I can buy for my 97 f-350 crew cab instead of getting a rebuilt and buying a hydra chip?

    Specs - 96 7.3, E4od, 2wd, 4.10 gear, 133k miles I have been experiencing a shudder when shifting into overdrive. Shudder feels more like a lugging engine and it shakes the entire cab.

    Good afternoon, I’m looking into trying to completely rebuild an older truck vs buying a brand new one. I am currently thinking of a 1997 f350 4 door short bed with an updated 7.3 Powerstroke.

    Just curious if anyone has painted an aluminized exhaust system before. I'm wondering if it would help protect against rust. I was thinking about using either high temp grill paint or possibly header paint. I know it not a permanent fix, just thought it might help prolong the life of the exhaust...
