Newbie

I found the site while trying to locate a used auto-locking hub for my 97.
Purchased my first diesel this summer and I'm currently in the process of making it a reliable hauler for our 5th wheel. At the moment it's in the garage with the front suspension out while I replace ball joints, brakes, a locking hub on one side and installing "add-a-leaf springs.
I know I'll have a lot of Q's as a first time diesel owner.

Long time Ford owner . Just sold my 65 Mustang fastback but still own my 66 that I purchased as my first car in 1980. Currently on the lookout for a suitable 69 Mach1. Lots of Mustangs have pasted though our stables in our 25 yrs of marraige! Also own a 75 F250 Camper Special that my father purchased in 76. Pretty nice unrestored truck.

I expect many visits to the site.

Wow, quick replies! Thanks for the welcomes!
Raul, I've looked at the Warn hubs but in the short time I've owned the truck I've gotten pretty spoiled with just reaching down and switching to 4wd!
