    Taking my recently purchased '93 Ford F150 south to Fla for the
    winter. I'd like my mechanic to look it over and make sure it's
    ready for the trip and I'd like to give him a list of things to check.
    Below is what I've come up with...can you think of anything else?
    Thanks in advance for the replies.

    1. Tires - tread and air pressure
    2. Front-end alignment
    3. All fluids (should I have him change trans. fluid or do anything
    transmission-wise?)
    4. Belts
    (oil, lube, filter just done)

    Check U-joints, the rad, all cooling system hoses if they haven't been done already.

    Do you know when the transmission was serviced last? I'd be inclined to want to have the trans checked out thoroughly and have the fluid & filter changed - have the trans flushed completely when the fluid is changed. Just dropping the pan leaves a bunch of the old fluid still in the trans & torque converter.
