I know a local upfitter who uses a company that regularly ships cars all over the country. I can get you in contact if it will help. BTW, heater and air conditioner work fine.

Re: Need a Photo Tutorial

Ben, it's the ideal vehicle for someone wanting to build an adventure van on their own. That's what I bought it to do. I figured I could get better pieces and parts, the kind and quality I wanted,...

Re: Fiamma vs Carefree

Angel, did they just bolt some flat pieces through your fiberglass top to hang the case on? Is yours a manual crank or motor driven? Whichever, have you had any problems with in and out? Did you...

Oops. Sorry, just noticed you had no winch. Questions about recovery still good in theory.

Re: My Big Stuck

Congratulations for solving an emergency while soloing. You almost became our first adventure van camper to be swallowed forever in quicksand(mud)!

Re: Fiamma vs Carefree

I, too, like the Cascadia awning as an alternate to Fiamma. HOWEVER, we have to compare things to thangs. The F45 S that most people have and kinda expensive is a much tougher item than the...

I have money to send for a set of the real Z brackets if anyone ends up fabbing them and looks back at this thread. If so, PM me.

Re: 7.3 Instrument Cluster Tachometer

Okay, thanks. Unless I find more unattached wires hidden in the bundle, I'm going to ignore the inputs for "Tach Select 1" and "Tach Select 2". Shenrie's diagrams seemed to indicate he put a wire...

Re: 7.3 Instrument Cluster Tachometer

There are 2 pins in a connector on the back of an '01 F series for 4x4: One to tell the driver it is engaged, the other is to tell the driver he's in low range. On a 2WD pickup those pins are just...

Re: 7.3 Instrument Cluster Tachometer

I was being tongue-in-cheek because I never thought anyone would actually consider paying that. Therefore, I may have you young lads astray. $1,100 only gets you speed, tach, fuel, water temp, oil...

Re: 7.3 Instrument Cluster Tachometer

I was really salivating over the thought of a costume, digital dash. So I called the site you suggested. No, they don't have a packaged cluster that fits my 1999.5 E350.

However, they will make...

Re: 7.3 Instrument Cluster Tachometer

Okay, my 1999.5 E350 7.3 cluster is about to call an F2/350 7.3 cluster and they'll do lunch (or whatever clusters do together; it's hard to know hidden behind that dash, and all).

The F clusters...
