    New Sony Head Units

    Sony just came out with two new wireless Android Auto units that I am looking at to replace the factory stereo in my Gen2 Job 2 Beauty. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_158XAV4000/Sony-XAV-AX4000.html This 4000 is the first one out, uses resistive touch and has 2V pre-amp. The 6000 that comes...

    78k miles and need a new radiator

    Vic, you got it right. I picked up the rig tonight and he showed me the radiator, I had no idea there was so much damn plastic. Thank you EPA and your fuel regs, requiring lighter vehicles. The top piece had come loose, breaking the seam/seal where the plastic meets the metal. I went with...

    78k miles and need a new radiator

    Thanks Mark! I wondered why the cap wouldn't have blown if it did over pressurize. They told me the ford radiator is crazy expensive so I said go with the third party one. Plus if it broke at 77 I'm not too happy with the durability. They are doing new hoses and thermostat too

Two days later I check and my rig has a puddle underneath and it's hemmoraging coolant with non in the reservoir. I've taken it to the dealer and they said I need a new radiator and they are...

    Tonneau Cover Middle Pins

    So my middle pins on the tonneau cover have sheered off after a lot of taking it on and off. Has anyone replaced those? Do I have to replace the whole middle hinge assembly? Thanks in advance for any tips!

    Siphoned?

    So I forgot to post back but it was a paper wasp nest in the plastic elbow valve of the vent line (its zip tied to the fuel neck in the right wheel well). Cleaned it out, and went to the gas station and got a full tank! Thanks everyone!

    Siphoned?

    Thank you all. I am going to try this over the weekend. Eddie I did try Texaco as well. Same thing. And since us Oregonians are too stupid to pump our own gas I cant change the flow or try anything different. I've had the Trac now for 7 years and never had this problem. I found a...

    Siphoned?

    Wow Vic. That is a crazy video. Is the evap vent valve easy to get to on the Trac? I don't have access to a hoist. Does the fuel system need to be depressurized?

    Siphoned?

    Hey all! I have a 07 ST and a couple weeks ago I thought I had more gas then my tank gauge showed, and I was worried at the time I was siphoned. I went to get gas in my truck two weeks ago and the pump kept clicking off but I was only getting 10 gal so the attendant manually did it (live in OR)...

    Max Weight in Bed

    This is what she looked like last night. Not looking that low today, but still seems low to me. I've got the biggest tires Les Schwab would let me put on that so they aren't the stock michelins. [Broken External Image]:

    Max Weight in Bed

    What's the max weight that you can have in the bed of the 07 ST v8, 4x4? I hauled 700 lbs of concrete and about a hundred lbs of fence boards and after unloading it still looks like I am sitting low in the back. Did I screw something up??

    EDIT: INFO ONE OF THE SADIST DAYS OF MY LIFE.. THE LAST Sport Trac Has been built !!! PLZ READ !!

    I was really really hoping Ford would have done a 3rd gen and built it a little taller, and offer stock over 300hp..... but now I just hope they bring it back. Mine is about to turn 5 here soon (good news being it will be paid off :-)) but its already been well loved. I figured I would be ready...
