  • Thinking about converting a truck

    I have a F-150 96 single cab 2wd pickup with the 4.9L inline 6 with a 5 speed standard transmission i was wondering if anyone has any helpful words on how i can convert this truck i already have a high pressure regulator and a spare tank and lines and fittings i just am not that knowledgeble about the rest of that stuff that goes on to the truck to convert it. Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

    I am in Stroud OK. Please do not try this on your own because 3600 pounds of pressure can be deadly...especially if it's a flammable gas. I replaced the cng injector o-rings, spark plugs & coil packs on my '00 F150 with factory installed equipment....it was not easy. There is definitely a whole lot of stuff necessary to make cng work. I recommend finding a professional installer (hard to find & expensive) or buying a truck with cng already installed (easier to find but still not cheap).

      i know the dangers of it and i know i dont know enough to do it but i have heard there is a converting company in OKC that can do it i just want to buy the parts and have them do it because i know that they charge a lot more for parts than what they actually cost.

        Most shops that I know of generally won't be interested in putting a system on that they didn't sell you. That is like trying to get professional installation at Bestbuy after purchasing a home theatre system from Circuit City because they were cheaper. Heck, some conversion shops won't even mess with you unless you are a fleet customer.

          I really love my CNG vehicles! I would love to find someone close, too. The OKC 405 area code numbers I found under the hood of a Chevy truck retrofit were disconnected. Please keep me informed if you find someone close.
