Default Looking for a Good Ford Truck Forum

Well,my son and i are both running Fords this week,and as we all know, Ford means Fix Or Repair Daily...

So,i'm in search of a good site focused on Ford Trucks...something the good folks here at MTF would join...anyone know of a good one? I could spend weeks sifting through all the useless forums,then join one, only to have a bunch of rude,obnoxious people call me stupid for asking a question...

Nice board. Mostly Latemodel Bronco, but a lot of F truck, also.

Thanks,guys...My son went to fordtrucks,com last night,and in minutes,had found exactly the answer he was looking for...i looked around a bit and seems like a decent site,just wanted some feedback...

We also came across FSBronco and found some info there awhile back,gonna look into that one further,too...i just don't like to join a site,then find out it's useless...been there...

Between the 2 Fords,i'm sure we will be spending plenty of time fixing stuff,already got an impressive list...now i remember why i stopped buying Fords 10 years ago...seems like when something broke on the Toyota,i could still drive it until i could fix it...not so with the Fords,usually....

Oh,well...not complaining...that's just a side-effect of driving $500 trucks...stuff's gonna break,no matter the make...

Full size Bronco is also owned by the same parent company as we are.

I knew this would happen- as soon as I saw the title "looking for a good Ford truck forum"- someone would drop the "forum", and say that there is no such thing as a good Ford truck...
My two cents- any truck that stays out of the shop is a good one. And, since anything moving breaks and wears out, they are all about the same. At the end of the day, which one is cheaper to maintain? That is the question, not what emblem is on the grill.
And, you can't expect too much out of a $500 anything- except patience and experience.

Sorry,wasn't intending to start any bashing...i do have my favorites, but i am not all that loyal to any particular brand..i usually don't look for a truck,they seem to find me and i end up buying when a good deal comes along...

The brand i hate the most is whichever one i happen to be wrenching on at that particular moment...i have sworn at all of them at some point...

There is a certain satisfaction in knowing you can buy a truck for the price of one monthly payment,and fix it up for about the same...when things break,i just add up how many months i didn't have to make a payment and the parts cost doesn't seem to hurt so bad...

I can replace just about any part on the older trucks,but i'm definitely NOT a mechanic....and i can't afford to pay one,so i stick to the old stuff,and try to enjoy working on it...

Thanks for the info...i'm gonna signup on both of those and see how it goes.

BTW, judging from the tailgate latches,it's Force Open Rear Door.

Junk Jivin,I feel the same way as you..I have older vehicles I know how to fix,and have cussed at all of them more than once while attempting to reair them!--and no matter who's name is on the grille or tailgate,they ALL suck in one way or another....

I used to work auto parts counters for 20+ years,thus my dislike for Ford vehicles is mostly due to the fact they sucked to look up parts for worst than any other brands,excepting maybe IHC trucks--if you didn't have a VIN or production date,you'd often have more than 2 different choices of parts for a certain year & model,so you'd have a 50/50 or less shot at fetting the right part the first time...

I never owned a Ford until 2005,when a very nice lady who is a star in Bluegrass music gave me one,a 1995 Ford Contour,after she heard I had the misfortune of having the engine in my trusty '79 "Chevy pickup lose a piston...I did buy a '69 Cougar with a 351W years ago,I got it for 150 bucks,but I only owned it about a week before I decided I liked the '67 Impala a friend had better ,so I traded it for it even!..(then he wrapped it around a pole a few days later!)...I like the Contour,it gets good MPG and its tiny 2.5 V6 flies ..but a FWD vehicle isn't my favorite really..

I elong to the Colorado K5 truck forum--they "do" mostly GM trucks,but they do have a "other vehicles" forum,and many members own Ford trucks as well as GM's,so some members there will probably know a lot about your truck...I know "some" Ford specs from my parts counter and junkyard experience,but they had so many variations of parts its hard to keep track of them all...GM's were bad enough!...

Yes,ToolBox...that's the one we found the other night...son's 92 F-150 4x4 was having front-end problems,diving to the left or right,kind of binding up,and hard steering...i checked the suspension while he cranked on the wheel and found a bad ball-joint on the drag link,replaced the drag link and still had same problem...he searched the site and found this...

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/10...need-help.html See Post# 20

Talk about hitting the nail on the head...saved a lot of hassle and unneeded repairs...

Ended up at a friend's house last night,drinking beers and tearing down the hub to replace the outer drive axle U-joint...when we pulled the axle out,the U-joint was seized up and wouldn't budge...the problem is fixed,but we have the other U-joint to put in this weekend...
