Found this forum thru Google while looking for an answer to why my 1995 F350 vibrates like holy heck at idle sometimes. Haven't found an answer yet but found lots of other information. I use my Ford diesels to haul. I have 2 that we use around the shop to haul scrap and run errands. I have been towing a 20ft enclosed trailer that we haul our Formula Toyota competition rock crawler with my 2000 F250 ex cab, and I just bought my alltime dream truck my 1995 F350 Crew Cab lwb in order to haul a 40 ft. enclosed trailer that we'll need next year to carry the 2 rock crawlers to competitions in the Midwest and Eastern US. Thanks for building this forum to aid all of us in our quest for information and to help us spend even more money and time on our trucks!

Welcome to the ORG.!

The vibration may be the dual mass flywheel dampener section coming apart. It has springs that fatigue and break causing a bad vibration. The fix is a single mass conversion, but you have to pull the tranny.

Hey thanks my buddy (Ford Master Tech) said same thing. Tranny will come out soon to investigate. I dig your rig. Thinking of a flatbed for mine with under boxes for hauling parts and tools.

Board seems fairly friendly compared to some of the rock crawling boards i've been on. You introduce yourself over there and you'll get 2 pages of double flip offs and loads of smart arse comments.

I know what you mean. This is by far the best forum I have ever visited, and I just can't leave Thanks for the comments, for the forum and my truck. I just put the flatbed on a couple weeks ago. It is great for working and did a fair job at travel. Two weekends ago, we had a meet in NC and I packed enough clothes for four people, two turkey fryers w/pots and oil, 2 propane tanks, a cooler full of beer, and 4 camping chairs all in the boxes. Took a little arranging, but it worked, LOL! If you decide to get a flatbed, I would get an 8' or 8 1/2'. Mine is a 9', and it looks a little long over the rear axle.
