Re: Ford truck identification

I think it was just a general purpose trailer if I'm honest. (I know the last owner said he used it for his motorcycle)

Re: Ford truck identification

My thoughts exactly. I ended up having to put the bed back on last night but access to the rear diff isn't difficult so I will drain and replace the fluid tonight or tomorrow. Even though the load on...

Re: Ford truck identification

Re: Ford truck identification

I would be quite happy with any company that has a "Ain't broke don't fix"...
