    Looks good! It's impossible to find them that clean up here. The only two bad things about them are the 16.5" wheels and the lack of siping, but you really can't beat the price for them!

    first repair already. blowing fuse #17. controls the gauges and electric transmission shifting. so with a blown fuse the tranny doesnt know when to shift and only my speedo works(since it works by cable)

    tracked it down to a ford TSB and they made a new shifter to fix the problem. the wires coming from the OD selector(tip of shifter) rub on the metal and short out causing #17 to blow. pulled my shifter and sure enough that was it.

    by a miracle ford has the new shifter in stock! $76, online its $50 :(
    but the plus is i can do it today...

    new(BARELY used, if at all) tires are here!!
    i lied in the above post, got all 5 for $500. my friend for 5 for himself also.

    might mount them on the 12 wide wheels i have for now, use the money from the old tires to buy wheels with.

    do the rules of the explorer still apply for this truck in axle gearing?

    stock 3.55s and 37 humvees. the explorer would be 5.13, but what about this truck?
    i know someone that had a f350 with 4.56 installed after he got 39s. so thats making me think its different for this truck

    4.10 or 4.56 should be cool with the amount of torque you've got with the 7.3. Especially since it's mostly a DD. Any pics with the tires on yet?
