    Truck will fly through snowy roads with 2 Truetracs. When you run out of grip way offroad, get the chains out.

    My trucks heavy and automatic, so a Detroit or Yukon locker in the rear is a no...

    I'd recommend sticking to your plan, one step at a time unless you plan on re-gearing.

    Put the Trutrac in the front, but just rebuild your rear LSD and shim it tight. Not a whole lot of...

    Agree'd. A single simple oops in a 4x4 can buy an entire KTM (any model).

    The Raptor does smooth out gravel country roads nicely though. How much does L charge for the...

    Of your choices, I'm voiting for the dreadfully awlful Ford E350 2wd. Add a selectable rear locker and some tire chains. Be ready with hilift jacks and equipment to get it un-stuck. Add rear...

    Nothing wrong with going a little bigger with the tires on a DRW and adding a leveling kit. Assuming you have airbags to keep the rear level when towing, once you raise the front. But you really...

    My Jeep YJ had a pretty good range with a full tank. If I refilled when I got off the highway, I was able to play around in Ocala National Forest all weekend. Must be one heck of an off road trip....

    My Duratracs rule in the snow. Might be a different application (fullsize with cargo), setup, or something else wrong.

    Dodge just ain't the best choice in Ohio. If you do get one, open up the door panels and get that foam out of there. Also keep an eye on moisture in the doors and under the carpet. Door seals...

    I've got about 600,000 miles on Fords and almost 400,000 on GM's in the field. I pick the Fords based on that experience. We scrap the GM's at 180,000 miles. Truth be told, both the Ford and GM...

    Only a fool swaps an LS into a Fox Body or Fox Chassis. Engine costs more than the car and sounds horrible. Plenty of great engines available for those cars. I'd swap in a 400HP Al block 347 or...

    Yeah the new trucks are fugly.

    The Raptor era F150's, current F350, and the Dodge HD's look nice to me. The 1/2 ton Dodges are pure ugly, the new F150's ain't so cool either. The GM's look...

    Not even close. The Excursion is lethargic, heavy, and huge handling. Like a bus, compared to the 'burban 2500. I'd still rather have the Ford, but it ain't the same "feel" as the burb. No...

    I'd get a Ford F350 with a gas 6.2L. 4.30 or 4.56 gears. Long bed. Manual hubs and transfer case if you can find 'em. XLT is fine. Don't waste $$$ on the Lariats, Platinum, or King Chump...

    +1.

    You want stiffer shocks. Not softer. Either your springs are too stiff or you're bouncing off the bump stops. Or the truck has lousy suspension geometry.

    Shocks too soft can have a...

    Full synthetic in a regular V8 F150 is a waste of oil. Cobra, Raptor, OK. But there is nothing especially wrong with the standard 4.6 that expensive oil will fix. It's a budget, low output,...

    A newer supercab or crewcab F150 is great for towing smaller 19' single axle trailers and boats. Something the Jeep will struggle to do (safely). And the F150 can haul 1 bike at the same time. ...

    Uh, no. It's a cheap forklift engine. Nowhere even close to a wet liner 15L semi truck engine in quality, materials, or reliability. Not even close. Never was.
