Item Description

The best-selling pickup truck in America is the Ford F-Series pickup. There are more than half a million units sold each year, and sales are constant.

In the Ford F-Series Pickup Owner's Bible, author Moses Ludel, has written an authoritative companion to your F-Series truck, with tips covering every aspect intended to help you get the most out of your Ford pickup, regardless of how you use it.

The book also covers performance modifications, truck development history and tips for new or used Ford F-Series truck buyers.

But the Ford F-Series Pickup Owner's Bible, a Motor Bookstore bestseller, does not stop there. Understanding that many -- if not most -- Ford truck owners take pride in performing their own maintenance, this comprehensive guide provides step-by-step instructions accompanied by hundreds of photos that cover the whole truck-maintenance spectrum; from oil and filter change to basic tune-ups to more advanced tasks, such as engine, tranny, brake and electrical work, they are also covered.

And as far as performance, Moses went straight to the experts at Ford Motorsport, where he worked with Ford's SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) engineers to give you the best high-performance tips for your Ford pickup; from camshafts to camber adjustments.
