Did you need to replace your core support? I can give you detailed instructions so you can do it yourself.

Its on the list, if you post a thread on the forum, I'll subscribe to keep it for the warmer weather

ive gotten near 20 years and 220k miles, I can still do all the com moments on the truck for cheap, a once over p n all major parts runs me about $9 grand, a lot cheaper than a new truck

Mine is completely rusted and I have bought the part just afraid to start tearing it apart. I would love detailed instructions.

Chevy and Goose, I'll make a thread within the next few weeks. Definitely wait until it warms up though! I was in an unheated garage for about 14 hours with single digit temps.

About 5 hours into a 7 1/2 road trip, the battery light came on.

Radio started to go out. Somehow I got lucky enough to limp it to a ford dealership in a small town. Dealership is closed for New Years so itís a hotel and wait kind of night.

Have had the truck for over 2 years, driven it cross country, etc and this is the first issue itís ever given me.

Put it in the side of an idiot that pulled out in front of me with no lights on in the dark! What in the hell is wrong with people these days! It is a 2001 XLT 4X4, step side, topper, with all the options and there was not a mark on it or a single thing that didn't work as new, only had 100152. So now the battle is on with the insurance company, I am sure because of the age they will want to total it. I may be on here looking for fenders and parts later.
