Well guys thanks for all the help. I ended up purchasing another MM on Friday, and it's almost identical to my old one. It has Megs tips, trunk organizer, some fancy radio (stock one is in the trunk), JLT CAI, Drilled/slotted rotors, brand new SS brake lines unopened in the trunk, and already had 4:10's. Oh an a stack of receipts from the previous owners. The guy had just paid over a grand for the stealership to put a fuel pump in it!! Overall I'm very happy with it and will slowly transfer my headers, converter, etc. over to this one.


The ABS light is on which my buddy said is probably the module. I'll swap mine onto it and see if it fixes it. Another question on the rear air suspension: mine had coil springs and looked like an air shock; this one has an air bag similar to a Lincoln town car w/ air ride and a shock. Which one is correct?

Thanks! It also had a disc changer in the trunk and I found the original window sticker too. I haven't look through all of the receipts yet to see what all has been done. It does seem to ride smoother than my other one did.

Thanks! Me too. Even though the mileage is showing about the same between the two, this one is a little nicer than mine. Who knows how long it's had 4:10's and no tune to correct the shifts and speedo, so it could have quite a few miles less than what it's showing.


I'm going to get what I want/need off of my other one to transfer to this one, part out everything I can down to the chassis and drive train. I have two 55 Ford truck bodies that I might try to install on top of the old Marauder chassis kind of like Hot Rod Garage did w/ project "Crown Hick."

Already swapped tunes! That was the first thing I did. I had also forgot about the bigger rear sway bar I had put under the other car.

Any more help on what to ask for interior stuff, rear trunk lid w/ spoiler...etc. I really don't know what all this stuff sells for.

I swapped the electronic part of the ABS module over from my other car last night, and the ABS light is still on. What are some other things to check?

abs sensors at each wheel can get dirty, check for that and if each wheel has one.
