i am looking at buyin this truck
i already have a f-150 so i am not completly retarted about the truck
but when it comes to the front end and hubs and t-case and you know every thing that makes a truck fun i am fuckin lost

what i am really looking for is your opinion on the truck and the things i need to look for

92 f-150
ttb front end
8.8 rear
302 5.0l with 275,000km
5 spd
auto locking hubs

so far i have been told :
auto hubs are prone to issues
ttb is not the best
tranny is not the tuffest but will do the job

lets see what you got ......................thanks

ive got a 95 f150. havnt had any tranny issues, the ttb front end, in my mind, is great.
mind you, all im using my truck for is mild trails to camping spots. my 33's have given me axle issues, but the 3:55 gearing is a bit off for the tire size

I would go with the 300-6 more torque and better on gas.

How much are you paying for it?
If you want a good one for 4x4ing I'm selling a 89 f250 with 9" lift and 36's for cheap. Has a hi-pinion d60 front and 10.25" rear.
Shoot me a pm and I can tell you more and send a couple pics

Yea I was going to finish it off and make it a big beast for stave. But then I found another one that was already completed and just needed some tranny work and a VI. $4000 and it had brand new 44" boggers. Just the tires are worth almost that so I got that. Has the exact same lift and everything.
Here's the one I'm getting rid of....

only difference between the two is one's auto, engine size, and tires.

for weekend exploring,camping

first thing is manual locking hubs,
a limited slip or lunchbox style locker
good onroad/offroad tires
solid tow points and a grill guard/custom front bumper

how hard is it to swap for auto to manual hubs
if i go and pull em for a wreckers will the go right on?

now i got a detroit locker in my 96 2wd why i dunno i bought it that way
plus it apearntly has a blow rear end but my bos has been driving it for a month with no problem and no sounds?

i have 33/12.50 bfg AT i am gonna throw on it 85% tread

and i already have 5 7' legents of 3" pipe with a 1/4 wall for my bumpers
and i got a few ideas

ya make sure you get all the parts(snaprings,clips,washers) from the wrecker
the auto hubs are sometimes a pain to take off they have a little keystock that holds the internal hub on and u need a pick and a magnet to pull it out.

could be a factory limited slip

that'll do, make sure its not sprinkler pipe though
i can build you a bumper or grill guard

it is most definatly a detroit locker
the paper work was in the glovebox and you can here it around corners

the tubes i am talking about is 6000lb trailer axels that have scared spindels and are no good
i think it will do the trick ?

trailer axles usually have a bend in them for weight compensation...

not the best choice but if they are straight and its all you got then hey it'll work

yeah i know about the arch
but the reason the spindels were pooched was the trailer could have used 2 9000lb axels
so across 7 ft their is a 1/4" crown
i think it should still work
but i cant find them not sure it the hobos stole them for the metal

hey troy i am looking at a tuff country 4" suspen lift i was wondering
how hard is it to install basicly nuts and bolts? and time
and would i have to worry about any things like drive shafts?

Troy

basically bolt in, your gonna need to grind some rivets off to get the factory brackets off.

a long extension with a big socket for the coil spring retainer nut.

how complete is the kit? drop pitman arm? extended brake lines or drop brackets for the brake lines?

driveshafts will be fine with 4''
