Re: 19 ft boat

I don't know what your tires are rated for in terms of load, or if your body lift will affect the hitch arrangement, but you're at least 1,000 lbs under the max towing for an auto on a stock truck....

Re: New 4-cylinder Ford Crate Engines coming in 2012

I think it's the same engine as the Focus ST–I'm not sure what that one needs though. Mazda's got their SkyActiv-G 2.0 up to 14:1.

Re: Well this is upsetting..

Depends on where you live. I imagine coal is big in SC. in WA it's all about the cheap, clean hydro power, in which case an electric is quite clean to operate. How cheap? in 8 years my electric bill...

Re: Tailgate Lock?!

The guy who runs the shop that did my bedliner said that you can get them from Ford! It seems they were an option on the overseas models – just provide your VIN and they'll match your key.

Taillights: 2-bulb to 3-bulb?

I like having my brakes and turn signals on separate bulbs. It makes things that much clearer for other drivers around me. Is there a way to convert from 2-bulb tails to 3-bulb tails for my '03?
