We're seriously considering sellin our truck but u want 4x. New plan is downsize sellin off antiques and non essentials puttin everything else in storage sell Ursula buy RV travel the US. Need something smaller to pull behind the RV it's sure gonna beat sittin in one spot and won't take much capital to have a bunch of fun. Takin an empty handed leap of faith to hopefully experience a sense of freedom that is so elusive in todays world!

You should drive it a ways and get it inspected (by a mechanic you know) before buying it. Check for drivetrain whines (in 2x4 and 4x4), leaks and front end soundness. If she drives straight and doesn't whine more than "slightly", and passes an honest and complete safety inspection without a hitch, it's probably worth the money. Just my opinion.

I have always loved that body style for some reason. I would seriously think hard about that one. If you are handy you can fix the rust as long as it is not total thru the metal.

Things to look for

Check the front clip at the sub frame to see if the rivets are loose (common problem) if so get them welded.

Upper and lower ball joints if 4 wheel drive
check U joints to each spindle

other then that they are solid trucks.

In a truck, I certainly prefer a 351W over a 302, so that's a plus in my book. (You're getting closer to a 300-6) The miles wouldn't scare me, as long as it's been treated decently. I'm not a stepside fan at all. Bed's too narrow for homeowner use. The stacks and rollbar need a ride to the nearest scrap yard. The truck looks too Redneck, in my opinion. I'd prefer the super cab you posted earlier. Again, just my opinions.

Haha. I don't mind the roll bar, not a fan of the stacks, but I'd probably just leave them. Hate step sides as well, but I like the look on the older F150's. Only problem with this one are the dents and rust spots all over. They want $2k, what do you guys think it's worth?

I haven't heard that Missouri is the HOME of rednecks, but I can assure you, there are plenty of rednecks in several other states as well. My point being, the common redneck has no respect for machinery. Cobble it up, beat the tar out of it 'til it blows, then cry about how it didn't last and where they're gonna get the money to patch it up just enough to get it back on the road. That mentality can be seen daily when they stomp and jerk daddy's Powerstroke, Duramax and Cummins around, just to see the black exhaust smoke boil and hear the turbos scream to impress their friends.

. I have family down in the Vandia and Farbor area. I understood what you meant by the Red neck label they are all over that area. Every time I go to visit I am surprised by the stupidity of them.

If you can't fix it with WD40, duct tape, or JB Weld then it ain't worth fixin'

Been through Farber/Vandalia area many times, on the way to Hannibal and other points north. For several years, I moved rental trucks (nationwide) for Budget.

Something that really bothered me a few years ago... The MO House contemplated doing away with vehicle safety inspections. That would have been a BIG mistake in these parts. Safety is a significant problem now, wthout adding to it.

As I've previously posted somewhere on ME, I know a local drivetrain mechanic that loves those young diesel and 4x4 owners. First thing they do is performance chip 'em, without a thought about tranny and transfer case upgrades to handle the extra torque. When they shuck a tranny or transfer case, they rarely have enough money to upgrade both while the truck is down. So, they fix the failed component, then down the road, they'll eventually shuck the other. The mechanic says, in labor charges alone, he makes a very modest living.

Exactly this... If a redneck can't fix it, they'll screw it up so bad nobody else can fix it either.

Hey guys, just got my first oil change done at the dealer, they said the left rear axle seal was "wet." Do you guys know what causes this and what to do about it? Paperwork says possible seep. All he said was to watch it. What are the problems that can/will arise if this gets worse?

Sounds like a bad pinion seal. Id go to the dealer and have them replace it because it shouldn't be leaking on a new car especially since you haven't done any suspension work to possibly throw off the pinion angle and wear it out faster.

Um er why didn't they fix it T it's fer sure still under warranty. Sounds like an axle seal going bad, if it's "wet" there's a problem and my experience has been it only gets worse with seals. A buddy had a 66 Chevelle back in the day noticed a leak didn't pay much attention. He was goin West on 150 from 71 felt a bump then saw his wheel and axle passin him. Not something to mess with on my opine, common misconception is the rear end grease lubes the rear bearings. Not true most rear bearings are "sealed" I'd take it back n make em fix it.

+1 Axle seal seeps will only get worse. They make a helluva mess when they start slinging gear oil. I changed my diff oil yesterday and I can tell ya first hand, that **** is nasty and stinks to high heaven. You don't want it all over the wheel well, brake caliper, rotor and pads. It just doesn't wipe off, and it becomes a dirt magnet.

I recommend you make an appointment and get the seal replaced as soon as you can. There is no such thing as an acceptable or allowable axle seal leak. "Watch it" is not a recommendation I would live with.

That crap is what stinks. The geal oil wasn't bad at all. I'd say the XL-18 tranny additive is nasty smelling too.

I guess they've already found out but, Ford says;

"Keys and keyless entry systems for your vehicle are more high tech than ever, so replacing a lost key or programming a new key or code requires some know-how."
