2000 Ford Expedition
2001 Ford F-350 with the 7.3L diesel

I'll never sell the F-350. The engine is a tank.

The Expedition is in good shape and runs dandy. I keep wanting to sell it, but the reality is I should just drive it into the ground and save the $ in the interim.

2002 Tacoma extra cab TRD. 5 Speed and 3.4L v6.

Mine has a 3 inch Old Man Emu suspension lift, Total Chaos Upper control Arms, 33 inch interco Trxus tires, and ARB brush guard. It also has a 3 inch body lift that I plan to get rid of ASAP (it was on the truck when I bought it).

I have several plans for this truck.

Suspension: I plan to box the frame, have the frame repainted (frame rust is a common taco problem), replace the bushings when I remove the body lift.

Body: all dents and dings repaired, painted, and the truck bed to be rhinolined.

Drivetrain: supercharge, 7th injector, headers, exhaust, and extra fuel tank.

Obviously I plan to add a winch as well.

2005 Ford F350 Crew Cab long bed 4x4 singe rear wheels. It has the V10 so gas mileage is terrible but I love it. The truck is stock expect shocks and tires are Toyo Open Country AT in 285/65/18. Love the 11,200 gross vehicle weight for carrying the camper.

Yer , the new ones are not my favorite either ..
Mine is a 2001 and is the second one that I have owned .
My last one was a diesel ( over 400,000 klms ) then blew a turbo ..

My new one seems to be going great atm .



Here in Aus , they are everywhere !! go figure ?

cheers

the old power wagons are beautiful trucks, for my 4BT cummins powered pickup project, i was REALLY close to choosing an old power wagon cab for the body.. decided on something somewhat similar in the M37 though of which i will probably fabricate an M43 ambulance type body to put on top.. i like vans, i like having an enclosed space i can sleep in and you can pile stuff higher in the back than on a pickup truck and not need to worry about it falling off

so... current 4x4 is a 2000 dodge dakota sport with the 4.7L V8.. next truck is a 4BT diesel powered M37 with an M43 van style body

as far as land rovers go, you guys ever see the "dakar 4x4" kits that go on the older range rover chassies?.. these things

My daily driver is a '98 Durango with a 5.2L. The wife has a Grand Cherokee with the 4.7L. Both are great vehicles. The Durango has much more interior space tho.

We used to have a '99 Disco. Engine crapped out at 98,000. Went back to LandCruisers and never looked back. Current one is a '93 with the I-6. When that goes it's getting a 4.0 I-4 Isuzu diesel. But it's only got 250,000 so I may just pull the engine when I'm bored instead of waiting for it to die.

I have three 4x4's... Well, four if you include my work truck...

State issued work truck - 2013 Ford F250, 351 EFI, auto tranny, custom paint and decals, blue light bar on roof, crappy stock size A/T tires...

Oldest truck - 1975 Ford Bronco, 302, 3 on the tree, 12.00x15 tires... This was my truck from way back in high school and has never stopped running. I am doing a frame off "show off quality" restoration and will probably give it to my grandson when he is old enough to drive.

Older truck - 1979 Ford Bronco, 460 w/ Edlebrock 4bbl and performer package, C6 auto trans, Hooker headers and Cherry Bomb glasspacks, 8" lift, 17x40 BFG Mud Terrain tires... This is my play toy...

Daily driver - 1998 Dodge Ram 2500, 360 EFI, auto trans, 3" lift, 35" BFG Mud Terrain tires... Beat up and tired looking but it is still one hell of a truck... Replacing all of the broken plastic on the dashboard and recovering the seats is in it's near future...

OH! And a swamp buggy for hunting. 302 2bbl, auto tranny, big honkin' lift kit, full-time 4x4, 17x40 Super Swamper tires.

Other than having my dad's Mercedes for a few years after he died, I have only owned and driven 4x4 trucks my entire life. Mostly Ford Broncos and my Dodge truck. I have never owned a GM vehicle and will take up walking before I would consider owning one.

You should have plenty of practice after owning all those Ford's.

My DD, and winter vehicle; 2wd '94 ranger pickup.

For moderate off road use, I have;

(very old pic).

'85 jeep CJ-7 Laredo, power steering, power brakes, no A/C, no cruise, no rear seat, hard top in the winter strapless bikini in the summer.
Nasty paint (the last good looking jeep I built got ripped, no one bothers this one).
Cherokee column & leather steering wheel
super seats
SOA
YJ springs in back, CJ springs in front
D44 flanged axle, 4.56 geared, Detroit locker rear with Cherokee brakes
D30 4.56 geared, ARB locker front axle, 6 bolt hubs and lockouts, single centered brake line ala Broncos
TJ rear flairs
35 x 12.50 BFG mud tires (33"x 10.50 compact spare)
4.0l fuel injected engine, emissions compatible
single 2 1/2" exhaust
80 amp alternator
T-5, 5 speed transmission
Dana 300 transfer case with 4:1 low range gears
tow hooks front and rear
Warn 8,000 pound winch with accessories
Metal 1981 15 gallon fuel tank, for better ground clearance, with skid plate (the 85 skid plate was poor at best).

Handles fair and runs fine down the freeway/interstate on 1,000 mile trips and goes pretty well off road.

Enjoy!

Good ol 96 cherokee. All I have done to it is cover it in bedliner Had to replace radiator and water pump. Not bad for 150K miles.

Lately it has developed a sporadic stalling problem and I have been forced to go down the list of sensors trying to find the bug. Sigh.

I wouldn't trade my 2002 Ford 7.3 for a new Japanese truck. I have had one wiring harness problem in 13 years. It pulled my boat through the mountains running on only 6 cylinders.

I would rather have one good dependable truck, than 4 average ones.
