    Fuel Cap Light

    I just fixed my issue, finally! Had the exact same CGC light, followed shortly after with the CEL. if you crawl under the truck, there'll be some hoses tied to the filler neck, one of those hoses connect to a canister valve of some type, one seems to have some sort of a cap or valve at the top...

    04 XLT 4wd stock 17" offset question

    What're the chances?! That is a good looking wheel, not to "spam" or anything but I work for RNR on plank rd if you wanted to pop in the store and ask for me I'll definitely look out for you on pricing. We'll install for free and supply the locks/lugs. Let me know.

    2003 Ford Exploder Engine Replacement Questions

    Alldatapro.com has always been my best friend working in auto shops with any job. I think they have a single car price but IMO it's well worth the money. I'd start pb blasting all the motor mounts and exhaust manifold bolts now to make removal easier. Alldata= $26.95 for one vehicle, 12 months.

    04 XLT 4wd stock 17" offset question

    I'm not 100% sure on the stock width or offset, but I know that a 17 x 8.5 with a +30 offset should clear with factory size tires. Hopefully someone can chime in to answer your first question. Good question

    2002-2005 FAQ regarding lifts, tires, etc

    I actually test fitted a duratrac (265/75R16) before I lifted the truck with my 16x8 0 offset wheels and it cleared. I imagine the +10 may help clearance. I would go for it, if it rubs, it'll be very minor and not even worth trimming because it'll wear a groove in the plastic over time without...

    That'd be great! Just let me know when. I actually bought my BTF spacers from Will (wills05xlt4x4) in Ashland. It was cool to see someone else with an Ex in person considering EVERY one I see around here is bone stock.

    So just an update because I haven't visited the site of a few days, I really appreciate everyone's input. I ordered a set of 265/75R16 Mickey Thompson Baja STZ's I got a deal on. Hopefully they do me as good as they did Ronin8002 . I did, (mostly for entertainment) test fit a 285/75R16 Nitto...

    I still cannot decide what tire I'm going with, I looked at the dueler at2 revo's and I do like them, but the cooper at3's are nice too. After calculating some finances I will not be buying the Duratrac's do to their high price, but at the same time I'll be able to purchase them late October, so...

    Sorry, I just realized I contradicted myself with the road noise comment, I just do not want a harsh ride since I most likely will not be driving fast enough to hear road noise. --corrected in original post-- Thanks again for everyone's input, you guys are saving me lots of time (and money) of...

    Thanks for everyone's input. I ordered a set of Bridgestone duelers to take a look at them tomorrow. I'm not too concerned with road noise mainly because I very rarely drive on the interstate. I've had the Ex for 3 months now and have only been on I-95 twice. I just wasn't too sure about an 8 or...

Thanks guys, will update with pictures this weekend, I'll...

    I do like the grabber at2's, but is it available in a 265/75/16 in anything other than a 10 ply?

    So it's time to purchase new tires, and I'm in need of opinions before purchasing. I have a set of Goodyear Duratrac's at my shop I ordered to simply check out in person and I really like the tire, but at $200 each I'm kind of exploring my options. I won't be doing much (if any) off roading...

    2002-2005 FAQ regarding lifts, tires, etc

    They should fit without any problems. The 245/65/17 is about 29.5" overall diameter and about 9.5" wide. I'm running 255/70/16's (30.05" tall and 10" wide) with a 16 x 8 and a 0 offset (4" back spacing) with plenty of room. I actually just test fitted a 265/75/16 goodyear duratrac (31.6" tall)...
