    Need some "guidance"/tech training and inputs

    Some people install transmisson thermostats to for realtime feedback. (Forgive me if your truck already has one.)

    03 F-250, Looking for some direction (hopefully a build thread of sorts)

    Yes, sorry to cause worry. It was 2004 and later, at least for F-150s.

    03 F-250, Looking for some direction (hopefully a build thread of sorts)

    Cam phasers are a known issue with the Ford 5.4L V8. Be aware. I think you have a nice truck.

    Having Difficulty Pricing my F-150 to Sell

    I think color on a new car is a big deal. But I've never worried about color on a used car, especially something more than 5 years old. Its more about the condition and price. ...Assuming it is not some outrageous paint job. Supposedly that is why silver is such a popular color--conservative...

    My Journey

    I read Finding Everett Ruess a few years back. I recommend looking into books by Craig Childs if you liked it. Not the same history of a single person, but a people. Maybe his book "House of Rain" as a primer, or "The Secret Knowledge of Water."

    Leer, ARE, other?

    Just one other comment to incite confusion. I've had a used Jason cap on my 2005 F150 for nearly a decade. Its the Pace model. I've been happy with it. Its very basic. The sticker says it was made in 2004. It looks like they have a fair product line.

    Wind River Ranging

    We knew there was a chance for it. But late August did not bring too many mosquitos and flies. We had a few bites, but nothing even close to what you experienced.

    World-Class Outfitters

    Finding knowledgeable and dedicated employees in person at outfitter shops is now a scarcity. And it will be for the foreseeable future. I think the way now, for better or worse, is the internet. The unexperienced consumer has to find the information somewhere online. Then you have to vet that...

    Falken Tires

    I've had Wildpeaks on my F150 for 2 or so years. My local auto shop recommended them for a good tire at a fair price. I've been happy with them and will probably go with them again.

    Flippac questions & pictures, from a new owner

    I can't speak to the tent portion. But I installed a new seal, similar to below, on the bottom of my fiberglass pickup topper. It helped dramatically with water seeping in.

    How would you outfit this custom LJ?

    I like this idea a lot. I would buy parts today if I wasn't so cheap. But it is now on my future upgrade list for my LJ. Thanks for the idea! Any evaluation yet about the concern over snow buildup on them?
