Re: [RC] Trucks - Stefffi_c


The guy I board with had the same problem with his
F250 SD truck. Turns out that Ford uses *plastic*
gears in the 4x4s. Yes, Plastic... He had his replaced
with better parts and loves his truck now. 

I have a 1989 Chevy 1/2 ton 350 engine with 190,000
and I'm still hauling with it. Also have used my SUV
(another Chevy, S-10 Blazer, V6 4.3) to haul my horse.
I've been really pleased with both our Chevy's. Had a
tranny put in my truck, they did a poor job, and used
a different place for the SUVs tranny, also had a
hauling shifter (whatever that is....) and tranny
cooler put on the SUV and it's hauled like a dream
since then!

Hi, I could use some advice too.   My 2000 Ford
truck had the transmission replaced at 23,000 km and
the transfer case and front differential replaced at
49,000 km.  It is now making a grinding noise in
4-wheel drive.  Think I got a lemon.  Anybody have
any advice about the new GMC 1500 Heavy Duty V8 6.0
litre?  I pull an aluminum Sundowner 2-horse
straight load with 4-foot dressing room and rarely
haul more than one 940 pound Arab.
