Correct. My super duty's have the 6.2l Gas engines.
My ranger is a 94 bucket of bolts.
I usually drive a beater one or two days during the week with a for-sale sign in it. I drive a large area and park the car out front. I've sold a few that way already.

Epic Fail--
These got sent back to the seller yesterday. First of all, the key fob is too big, so the key won't go all the way into the ignition cylinder. Secondly, I tried 4 times to get the remote programmed, but it wouldn't set. Great idea; too bad they won't work for us.

Installed a new intake to complete the entire flow of air from front to back with my duramax exhaust. Sounds deeper!

Ahh ok. well I guess you have to do what you do best and keep buying and selling until you can get the truck that you want. ;-)
I'm sure you can do that pretty quick. :-)

Damn that sucks. :-( You would have for sure started another new trend with these working out....A+ for effort though.

Just ordered my body lift. Thinking about ordering new body mounts as well but can't find anyone but Ford that carries them for 98+. Does anyone know if I can make the body mounts for Pre 97 work on a 98+?

drove to yakima last night. bought the weathertech black floorliners. Ive thought about ordering a set for a while and I saw them on craigslist for a good price and within driving distance. so far I like them. Weathertech says they wont fit the trucks with vinyal floors. but thats what I have and they fit pretty nicely '07 Fx4 Lvl II, 5 on the floor

Using their instructions and my 2 original remotes. I actually would have kept it if the remote had worked-I'd have just kept it in my pocket and used it to lock & unlock the doors; could really care less about using it in the ignition-I'd have probably locked it in the truck too often. Seller was really good about it-he refunded my PayPal today.

I talked to a guy at work today about trading my billet grille set-up for his STX grille--he's gonna think about it and get back to me. Fingers and toes crossed.

Always nice to have a good seller. Especially If they knew you were more or less just experimenting.

Put new shoes on the rear end. They we're a little too close to the rivets for me.

Towing mirrors are the only way to go. Ford started it all back in '99 with the Super Duty.

I loaded some steel that I bought into the back and drove it home.

That stuff will be used to fabricate other stuff... like a new front bumper and related brackets...
