Man you got a long  way to go.  My Dad once asked if he could borrow my truck for an afternoon.  It was a 1963 Chevy 3/4 ton long bed.  Got home and he had a 10 foot wide by 20 foot long aluminum deck roof strapped to the back.  I asked him where he got it and he said 60 miles south of where we lived.  It was highways and blacktops all the way.  It's a wonder he didn't wind up in jail.  That was just how my Dad rolled.  Have a few other overload stories but this one beat them all. :rocker:

  Too bad, that truck probably had a Windsor engine.

its a ford thing most people wont understand

 

I'm glad I don't :smilewink:

Ford knew they had a problem...they even circled it with a big oval :bigrofl:

 

My grandpa used to tell us "son, you either put light load in 'er or you put the bumper on the ground. Those medium loads cause bouncing and break the springs"  His old trucks usually were draggin the bumpers :D

My GT hauler

anderson,my tractor hauler these days is a low mile 89 XLT LARIAT WITH A 300 straight 6 and a 5 speed.

 

  Too bad, that truck probably had a Windsor engine.

Toolpartz,the old Ford was an 86 with optional fuel injection on a 5.0 with a NP435 granny 4 speed and a 9 inch rearend.It was one tough old truck and i miss it.

That's a big 10-4 !! I didn't understand it for many years, bought all new ford vans & trucks. Till I bought a Chevy Van (deal of all deals) that ford wouldn't touch. Now I understand. Lol if you want a trouble free front end, front tires to last longer get a Chevy. : ) I won't be going back to ford trucks. : )

NOTE : While there is much truth to this post, in no way and I trying to bash Ford. I'm just telling the truth, the whole truth and noting but the truth as I see it. : ) have that nice day.

The Twin I Beam Ford brags about is the worst front end designed. A straight axle is better. Most automotive designers will agree.

Thanks, because that is like the John Deere/Cub debate. I think we all need more colors!

In my garage is the Ford F-150 and a Chevrolet Equinox and a John Deere, Case, Ford and Cub GT's. They all have a place!

 

PS: Almost forgot the Chrysler!
