    My 1993 Ford XL F-150 4X4 extended cab is still awesome! Has the 302 and manual hubs. Has 209K miles and goes thru snow with ease. Very solid 4 wheel drive feel on the road. Congrats on your truck!

    The engine has some gum from sitting up, but fires instantly. I'm running sea foam in it. That stuff is pretty awesome. Everything is clean and new on the outside.

    Welcome from Northern Illinois. Please read the guidelines...we do no allow the promotion of personal or other close relationship businesses.

    In this case, the OP purchased a pre-owned vehicle for his own usage and is not planning on selling it..

    I've gotten time to look the thing over. There was a hose missing on the EGR and I couldn't figure where it went. The thing coded for ignition misses and multiple codes for the EGR. I took it to my fave mechanic and he said he replaced that hose on the EGR and that it needed coils, coils causing the ignition miss. He has an 8 pack of coils for 260 bucks which in my experience is a DEAL! For me to buy 'em at Auto Zone, I'd be out 80-100 a piece, near 800 for 8 of 'em. At least that's what it costs on my Toyota, replaced 4 of 'em and did the work myself and it cost 400. At least I could get to the plugs on that little car. The truck is a pain. So, I'll pick it up this afternoon. Should run right, now.

    Drove the Ford to town to take the wife in for a rotoroot up the butt.....colonoscopy. I gotta say, the old Ford motors along now. Can't help but compare it to my Silverado. The Chevy rides rougher over bumps and such, Ford, even though the springs are stiffer being a 4x4, rides smoother. Chevy has the power advantage with its bigger motor and accelerates better from any speed. Part of this is the difference in the transmission and transmission technology. The Ford is old school, mechanical transmission linkage 3 speed w/ OD. Chevy is an electronic wonder, computer controlled shift 6 speed, always the right gear for the situation, no hesitation. I kinda prefer the much simpler Ford transmission, though, just call me goofy. I mean, last tranny I worked on was a MG manual shift. I sure as HECK ain't tearin' into no automatic. But, I just kinda think simpler the better. Bad as I am physically anymore, I get no pleasure in working on ANY danged thing, tell ya the truth. Changed the oil in the Chevy the other day and it nearly killed me. I have to do that to the Ford, now, but I'm waiting on that cold front....official report. At least the Ford is jacked up off the ground a bit more so I'll have more space under it.

    Besides all that, the Ford is a MAN'S truck. My pastor, previous owner, called it "the tank". Personally, I think it needs a brush guard and a 4 ton winch to top it all off. I'll work on that. There's a truck customizer place in El Campo. But, I've got to budget for new tires not too far down the road.

    The wife can have the Chevy. Oh, it's our travel trailer truck, too, 10,000 lbs tow capacity.

    Final observation, MY GAWD have I turned into a redneck or WHAT???? I guess it's age. All those years of bikerdom have left me with cancers all over my skin. Aging is a sad, sad thing.

    I used to do a lot of vehicle maintenance, now I leave it to my local shop. I shop the synthetic oil and filter, call in for a good time to show up and his guy does the change for ten bucks while the owner and I shoot the bull about guns and everything else.

    Your Ford sounds like a great truck...

    How big are those tires?Some factory size or one size bigger all terrain tires may improve your ride and possibly your mileage if you have oversized mud tires on it.

    Never seen a 4.6 or 5.4 ford that didn't like to eat ignition coils.

    AC freon with stop leak should be banned.Death to an A/C evac/recharge machine.

    Good dependable trucks.
