hi, i recently bought a 1998 ford f250 lariot and the four wheel drive isn't working. i turn the knob on the dash to 4hi and the 4x4 light comes on but still nothing. but when i shift into 4low in neutral i hear the hubs engage but still the whells don't turn yet the 4x4 low light comes on. any ideas what this is? pplease help me i live in northern canada and this truck is absolutley useless in the snow without the 4x4 working. thanks!

I just recently bought a 03 ford f250 and im new to all of it also. i just took it mudding though and it's bad A. There are notches on the hubcaps of the two front wheels that you have to turn to lock. Then you switch it into 4 wheel drive. make sure if the wheels are locked you have it on 4 wheel drive, it can mess up ur trans if not. when u go back to 2 wheel drive switch the wheels back out of lock. good luck

Have a 1990 F250 7.3 Liter. Pushing 400K miles after an engine rebuild at 175K. Having some dashboard related electrical trouble. Does anyone have experience with removing the instrument cluster, replacing the headlight switch, and the wiper/washer switch? My Haynes manual in useless.

#1098 of 1235 new rims on a 2003 f250 superduty 5.4 triton gas
Jan 02, 2009 (7:42 pm)
the truck came factory lifted with the off road package . the rims are 16inch. how much bigger could i get the rims and would i have to do anything special to make room for a 18 inch or 20 inch rim. or can i get a bigger tire and use the same rim. what do you think is better..

if i just buy the chrome header and exhaust that a company says will fit my 03 ford f250, what else do i need to buy. is there a kit i need that has brackets of some sort. is this an expensive job to have a mechanic do>

i put bigger tires on the same rims! i got 3 inches of lift but you have to watch out for the wheel wells. also your tach and odometer wil be off a bit but its definatly a cheaper option happy muddin!
