so i have a name for it.   VALDEZ.    you can pretty much see everywhere I've been by following the oily rainbow.  no worries though...its just the oil pan gasket...or a lack of one.

anyway.  the tire hopping one wheel drive crap is getting annoying, so i want to lock the rear wheels together.   i can get a spool relatively cheap, but i don't know what kind of rear is in the truck.  is it the Ford 8.8 inch one?  how many splines on the axles?

if you're planning on doing any significant driving on the street you may want to go with a posi or a locker rather than a spool.  to be honest, I haven't done too much homework on brands, what's cheap or what's good

But posi's are so expensive......   =/    Well.  Like 500 bux or so.    But a good spool only costs about 160.   And a clutch type LSD can wear out over time and will need to be rebuilt.   Couldn't I get stronger axles and traction bars to prevent/eliminate all the things that kind of go wrong when you use a spool on the street?

yup!  i'm looking for some traction, then overall performance with engine mods.

oh...and my diff is the square one.  is that the 8.8 or 9 inch one?   and where should i shop for a limited slip diff for it?  got any tips or advice for such a venture?

mine is 8.8, so thats probably what yours is. on the limited slip im not sure where to buy one. i havent gone down that road yet. i will in the future though so when u get done doing some research post your final vote on which one you went with. try 4 wheel parts. or google it!

wth?!  i figured since you already have all those sweet mods and upgrades, you'd have a locker or a posi or something.... is your's 4wd?  that would explain not needing a locked rear.   

with an open diff...my truck is essentially one wheel drive.   pretty useless in inclement weather. 

sandbags FTW!

Maybe "SLIMER" for a name....considering when I bought it, it leaked a quart of oil every 2 or 3 days.  Just have to wait till spring and paint it 'flat lime green'.

Then gonna whip up a kickass logo/avatar and make some stencils and stickers.


I'm excited for the "All Truck Show" in Carlisle, PA this year......but really pissed it isn't until August.    That means I'm supposed to sit around with my thumb up my arse and do nothing for....7 months?      I'm gonna have to go to "Spring Carlisle" in May...AND the "All Ford" show in June, and hope for some sweet deals.


I'll be looking for stuff that's pretty pricey all shiny and new....like a sweet LSD....some bumpers...big fat tires....you know....

I ordered lift blocks for the rear....and a set of 4 shiny new Bilsteins.   I don't know what kind of coil springs I have....if they are for a 4 or 6" lift....so I ordered my shocks for a 6" lift.  We'll see how that works out when I put it all together.  Next will be a set of Craigslist 35's.
