    She's Gone...

    Traded the Trac on a left-over 2018 F-150 4x4 Special Edition this week. I hated to see her go but it was time. With all the end-of-year discounts and rebates I saved over $12k off MSRP plus I had over $1100 in rebates on my Citibank Driver's Edge card. The F-150 has the 5.0L V8 (395 hp, 400 lb...

    2007 Tonneau Cover Latch Parts

    The right front (passenger side) latch on my '07 factory tonneau cover has a broken return spring. I finally had to remove the entire latch assembly since it would not return to the unlocked position and therefore would not allow that side to close completely. Is it possible to even buy an OEM...

    Front sway bar end links

    After I installed the Rancho Quicklift coil-over shocks on my '07 a few years ago I have broken a couple of sets of front sway bar end links. I have always replaced them with the stock Motorcraft links. My theory is that the stiffer springs on the Ranchos are putting too much extension pressure...

    2018 NAIAS Detroit Auto Show

    What does everyone want or expect to see at this year's show which starts this coming weekend? I'm hoping to see the 2019 Ranger but I don't expect it to look much different from the T6 Ranger that has been sold just about everywhere but North America since 2011. At this point I just want to...

    Rear Carrier Bearing

    My brother-in-law has a 2007 Sport Trac, V6 4x4 and it needs a rear drive shaft carrier bearing. He was told he needs to buy a complete drive shaft because the carrier bearing on 4 wheel drive models is not serviceable. Is that true? When I do a search so far I can only find carrier bearings for...

    Ranger Raptor

    Ford Performance released this video of a new Ranger model for the South African (and probably Australian) market for the 2018 model year. This prototype is still using the current T6 Ranger body so if we get a similar model in 2019 or 2020 it probably won't look exactly like this one, or at...

    Latest Crop of Apples Thieves

    I posted a few videos on youtube of the wildlife in my orchard this summer. These are of some of the bigger bucks and the last one is a flock of young wild turkeys. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnojQpCCmTw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkqzQFkHPnE...

    Exhaust Leak

    Had to change the exhaust flange gasket between the downpipe (Y-pipe) and intermediate pipe. Only took about an hour and a half. Craziest part was that none of the local auto parts stores stocked the gasket or the bolts and springs so I had to order the parts from Autozone and have them...

    Power Rear Window Problem

    A few days ago while I was traveling on the interstate I put the power rear window in the "vent" position. In other words, it is not in the full down position but only open about 1 1/2 ". At the end of the trip I attempted to close the window but there was no response when I tried to close or...

    Redneck Grill

    This started out as a joke but it might actually work. I had already built the stone fireplace and needed to dismantle an old gas grill that my brother-in-law had given me a few years ago. The bottom of the grill and the burners were shot but the top is still in decent shape. So I started...

    Waiting for Stella

    Well, looks like the East Coast might get hammered in the next couple of days. Right now they are predicting 6-10" of snow for this area (west central PA) starting tomorrow night but potentially double that for areas farther to the east. I guess it all depends how close the storm stays to the...

    5.3L Engine Swap

    I have been thinking about what I would do with my ST if I decided to keep it indefinitely. One of the issues I have is that even with the 4.6L V8 I would really like to have a bit more power for towing. I know there are supercharger setups available but I would not feel safe doing that to...

    A Better Mouse Trap

    I was cleaning out the garage the other day and discovered, completely by accident, a new way to catch mice. I had a piece of 4" PVC drain pipe about 15" long standing on end beside a large plastic trash can with a lid. For some reason mice like to chew on plastic and they must have been able...

    New Front Bumper Cover

    I bought a new front bumper cover about a year and a half ago after the original was cracked on a deer's head.:sad: The chrome was starting to peel on the original grille so I also bought a new black Iron Man grille and billet aluminum grille insert. I painted all of the plastic parts body...

    PowerNation tool...I mean fool

    After receiving an email from these guys that included the title ?Ford May Give Axe to V6 Engine? I couldn?t resist leaving a comment on their website. The real story is that someone found some information that suggests that the 3.7L V6 may be dropped from the Mustang for 2018. I basically told...

    New Ranger/Bronco

    The attached article claims that the next gen Ranger and Bronco will be designed in Australia. I guess that is not unexpected since the current not-for-sale-here Ranger was also designed there with significant input from US engineering. This might also explain why there have been no spy shots of...

    New Bronco and Ranger

    Looks like Trump has inadvertently forced at least someone to confirm that Ford is planning to build and sell these vehicles here again. In response to Trump's attacks on Ford during the first debate a UAW member made this comment to The Detroit Free Press: "I think Trump needs to get his...

    Not Impressed

    My nephew has a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali with AWD and the 6.2L. He is always bragging about "that big 6.2" and saying how it is so powerful. I haven't driven it yet but I have ridden in it and so far I am not very impressed. Granted, it is a much larger and heavier truck than our Tracs but from...
