ac is the dang cooling device that does not work in Ford 1 ton......works fine in the dodge olds and house.....ford is goin up for sale , had enough of it. wont haul a load and eats fuel and has no power. (I put a fortune into hopping up the 6.0 diesel to make it go too) anyone looking for a 07 f-350 diesel?

Funny story: I went to the Auburn (WA) public library to do a podcast interview on the famous 'DB Cooper' case. When I came out, I saw fluid under the truck. What? A leak?

LOL...I haven't had AC that works in so long, I forgot about the water that drips out when you run it.

Sorry for the cross post, but it was sooo much work!
That's a lot of work to get the shifter done.

Is the 300xz transmission different from the VG30 Hardbody transmission?

Seems like the shifter on the VG30 D21 engine would be better at squeezing in there.

What is this A/C you speak of? I often forget my car has it since I am so used to vehicles with no or broken A/C.

I was off work today so I just cleaned out the cab. I use a tall, skinny box behind the drivers seat to hold extra parts, tools, etc.

Note for future reference: In August of this year I will be looking to buy a low-mileage Pathy in prime condition, shift only, for the wife. She has restricted my search to 97-99. Holy cow, that's going to be a tough order. I figure something like that, even if I can FIND it, will run at least $3,500. Might have to go national on the car sales websites to even locate something that rare.

I didn't know they made Pathfinders with manual transmissions.

It wasn't that much work, but it was a wasted fuking day!

I am just a complete and total 100% dick for not knowing the 6 cyl trans was the same internally as the Z32.

I suck at life... God, WTF!!!!
