I dunno what year they changed the 4 litre to the better cooling system but if its got a radiator cap its gooder than the old style. [cheers]

'92 is a good year for, open cooling system (rad cap), 4.0HO, non renix efi, and not OBDII ! Carry a spare crank sensor with you at all times! :D

Watch for Stress cracks in the body Upper back corners of the sides and door Hinges as well as rust between the unibody frame rails.. I had one that rusted through there and soaked the underside of the carpet (under the waterproof layer) the just spread the moisture and it was soon a flintstone car. was real good for seeing what the surface of the road was like

ZJ springs will be softer than F150 by a long shot.
