    Hi everyone! My grandpa and dad were both diesel mechanics and I love working on my motorcycle. But, there is NO way I would ever try to even imagine working on a diesel. I have no idea if buying a Ford diesel is the way I should go. Here's my dilemma: I currently own a 2010 FJ Cruiser and I...

  8. Wheels, Tires, and Brakes
    Hi guys I found a 2005 6.0 with 136xxx miles on it and hes asking 15,500. The guy put a 6 inch lift and 37's on it 30xxx miles ago. He still hasn't re-geared the differential since he put the bigger tires on. Would this be a good buy considering that i will have to re-gear the differential?
