It has small scratches and minor dings. The tires are road worthy but have some surface tears in side wall. When the tail gate is lowered there is a horizontal metal strip which has rusted through. Tail gate and bed works without issue. The A/C is ice cold but works only on the high fan speeds. The power door locks unlock the drivers side not the passenger side. All else works as it should, Truck runs great."

This has been my truck since 2000 when I purchased it new here in NJ.  It has served me well, I hauled my carpentry tools in it back and forth from the Princeton area to Staten Island. I needed a van for more tool storage which is why I'm selling it. This PU truck has never been driven by anyone else but me and I treated it kindly. It has never been in any kind of an accident nor has it seen a flood. It is very clean inside and out. You can still see a shadow of my business logo on the drivers and passenger door. If you are applying a logo or partial wrap to the door you will no longer see it. The engine runs perfectly with no leaks or hesitation. Its strong and steady. I have a heavy duty 2" hitch on the truck and the hookups for your trailer lights. I primarily used the hitch for a T like bed extender to carry very long lumber, never pulled anything heavy with the truck. 4 wheel drive works great and is operated by a knob on the dashboard. Its electronic and fully automatic. The interior is free of any tears or defects. The carpets have been protected by tub type heavy duty mats that hold quarts of water. The mats are fitted for this truck and are easily removed or changed the carpet underneath is like new. Radio sounds great. No mechanical noises coming from the truck that shouldn't be there accept a rattle from a loose heat shield. The bed is lined with a tough liner and there is a nice roll away cover from TruXcedo that uses industrial hook and loop closer. Breaks are recently (12mo) changed. 


Here are the defects:
  • It has small scratches and minor dings as you would expect from a vehicle born in 2000. The body is in great condition other wise. 
  • The tires are road worthy and have good tread but have some surface tears in side wall. 
  • One of the rear tires has a slow leak
  • When the tail gate is lowered there is a horizontal metal strip which has rusted through in two spots. This doesn't seem to affect anything.  Tail gate and bed works without issue. 
  • The A/C is ice cold but works only on the high fan speeds. 
  • The power door locks unlock the drivers side not the passenger side.  They lock both doors.

Diesel Power finds the ultimate modified oil-burner

Sat, 24 Aug 2013 20:00:00 EST

For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.
What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"

2014 Ford Fusion to get 1.5L EcoBoost three-cylinder?

Tue, 09 Apr 2013 13:32:00 EST

Just one year after launching the all-new 2013 Fusion, Ford is reportedly set to alter the sedan's powertrain lineup with the addition of a new 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. A member of Blue Oval Forums apparently got their hands on the ordering guide for the 2014 model year Fusion, and this 1.5-liter mill is set to be introduced with late availability.
This lines up with other news about the Chinese-market Mondeo being offered with a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost - a derivative of the 1.0-liter triple that will come to North America under the hood of the Fiesta (note: the 1.0 is also offered in the current Euro-spec Mondeo). In the Chinese application, the larger three-pot engine produces 177 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is very close to the current 1.6-liter inline-four's output numbers of 178 hp and 184 lb-ft.
What's interesting, however, is that the 1.6-liter engine will reportedly still be offered in the Fusion, but only with the six-speed manual transmission. The smaller 1.5-liter EcoBoost will only be mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic, and will feature start/stop. This means that while the 1.5 is slightly down on power compared to the 1.6, it could easily improve fuel economy numbers, allowing the Fusion to regain the title of having the best mileage in the segment, likely besting the 38 miles per gallon of the Nissan Altima. Currently, the Fusion 1.6 is rated at 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.

New Ford Police Interceptor tech protects cops' backsides

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 10:29:00 EST

It was only a matter of time before law enforcement agencies would realize the potential of driver-assist technology for use in their Ford Police Interceptors, and, now that they have, those back-up cameras and radar systems won't be used just for parking, but for security, as well.
The surveillance mode system works when the camera or radar detects movement from behind the vehicle, and if it does when it's activated, an alarm will alert the officer inside the car, the driver's side window will roll up and the doors will lock, protecting the officer from an unwanted intrusion. The officer, of course, has the option to turn surveillance mode off, mainly in urban areas where pedestrians would constantly set the alarm off, and it can only be activated when the police car is in park.
Randy Freiburger, Ford's police and ambulance fleet supervisor, came up with the patent-pending idea when researching the needs of police officers and riding along with them, during which time he realized officers would be safer with an extra set of eyes watching the area behind their cars, especially at night or when they're completing paperwork, using the in-car computer or handling a radar gun. "Unfortunately, there are people with bad intentions who sneak up on police officers," he says.
