The Latest Off Road Wheeler -"Betty" (the Ford)

2003 Ford F150 7700 4X4

An amazing and rare truck- its a F150 with a F250 drivetrain for a heavy 7700 lbs GVRW! All stock with only a tire and shock up grade.

I found this on Craigslist in Rancho Cucmonga 220k miles on the clock for $2500. It was an old California Fish and Game truck (mostly hiway mileage I'm told). Its a BiFuel, with propane tank removed. Technically, a ULEV, now with gas only 5.4 Triton V8, just an LEV.

With a set of 33" (285/75 16 LT) Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ-P3s in Load Range E, this truck goes where I point it.

The Mighty ZJ

El Cheapo Jeepo #2 - 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4 V8

Nick Sharpe's 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ

The Mighty ZJ - my second Grand, this '96 was a one owner vehicle with 170k miles bought, again, in Rancho Cucomonga for $2k cash. Powered by the mighty 318 V8 cleverly disguised as a 5.2 litre, automatic and all wheel drive. The best part is, in '96, Jeep got smart and made the transfer case a "low lock" and the rear dif is 3.73 LSD (Limited Slip Differential). That means instead of having what amounts to a third differential, when you shift into 4 low, the torque split is 50/50. That makes for a very capable and comfortable off road cruiser.
