  1. There were no 1998 Ford F series diesel pickups. They skipped a model year when they came out with the Super Duty in 1999.
  2. Ford 1996 F250 did not come with a D60 from the factory. Only F350 did. F250 came with the TTB D50. Not saying you don't have a D60. If you do it was swapped in. Or maybe your frame is from a F350. F350 D60 axle is very sought after plus it is a high pinion. I have a 1996 F250 Powerstroke extra cab short bed that I swapped in a D60 from a F350 I bought from a junk yard. I can tell you they new what they had and charged me a pretty penny. Worth it for a high pinon solid axle D60. If you do have a D60 good for you.
  3. Looks' nice what you did. You must not have seen any of my posts. The 2.5 EXPANSION tank bolts right in. The holes are already there. You have to relocate a few things but that's no big deal, especially if you have eliminated the EGR. The MACs tank allows you to go from closed to open. Mishimoto radiator has filler neck like yours in the picture, but also has threaded insert for 89 electric fan. With that radiator you can eliminate pressure tank , use 2.5 expansion tank and have sensor for electric fan. I have the macs tank set up now but if i ever need a new radiator i will ge
  4. I assumed you had a Macs tank. If you filled the tank half way I guess it might work, maybe someone has tried it. You don't want to plug that fitting, that's where the pressure will escape.
  5. Once you install the aluminum tank with radiator cap you WILL have an open system. An expansion tank for a 2.5 engine works very well. It bolts right in. The holes for the screws are already there. It mounts on the drivers side towards the front of the engine bay. You will have to relocate a few things. Then just run a hose from the expansion tank to the fitting below the radiator cap. Fill the aluminum tank to the top and keep an eye on the level in the expansion tank. It has markings for cold and hot levels. I believe the OEM cap for a 4.0 is 13 psi. Hope this helps.
  6. Just my 2 cents. Being a Mold maker for 26 years I have had to deal with lots of broken bolts and much tougher broken taps ..I highly recommend Keenserts over helicoils. I think they are much better. Please check them out. i have repaired a few Harley Davidsons with them and my own Jeep ZJ
  7. Another vote for 4.56 with 33s. Highly recommend a trutrac for the front, your choice for the rear.
  8. LUK has a more premium line called Pro Gold. I have had the Pro Gold version in my truck for years and many miles. Very happy with it. https://www.carid.com/luk/pro-gold-performance-clutch-kit-mpn-01-901.html
  9. I would like to hear more about this radiator.
  10. The Clayton kit that I show uses larger grade 8 9/16" hardware.
  11. Clayton Off Road makes a nice kit if you want to upgrade to a larger bolt size. https://www.claytonoffroad.com/product/jeep-death-wobble-fix-kit
  12. Have always thought this one looked good. https://www.mishimoto.com/jeep-cherokee-xj-aluminum-radiator-1989-2001.html
  13. i agree with what others have said . After my research this is the one i went with. Still working good. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007QBPT5M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  14. I suggest this first. http://www.daycoproducts.com/dayco%C2%AE-belt-tension-gauges
  15. I plan to do this mod too. Please correct me if i am wrong. It gets confusing but from my research you to not want to use the ZJ tie rod end. The bar that goes from the steering box to the steering damper. I have read that there is a difference in how the damper hooks up so the late model XJ is needed. Moog DS1238 All other parts would be for a ZJ Moog ES3096L Moog DS1312 Like I said please correct me if you don't agree, these are the part numbers I plan to use when I do this upgrade. Thanks
