When you get the no start condition you need to measure the battery voltage directly on the terminals, it sounds to me like a short circuit inside one of the battery cells, if you measure around 10.5 V then one cell is bad.

75w-140 should be the rear on that truck. 75w-90 will suit you just fine. Grab Supertech syn from wallyworld, or if you don't like that flavor, grab some valvoline from any Napa or similar. M1 is another option, just double the price of Supertech.

I know it must be for a case. I came across these websites when I googled it. The one said it wasn't available any longer. I have since called three Ford dealers and: -one said they no longer carry it and to just use any 75x90 like Valvoline.

Yep, I rev-match every downshift, but I don't generally double-clutch. I do double-clutch to get into first gear in my '72 GMC 1500. My heel-toe technique is deeply ingrained after having done it for 28+ years, and I teach it to my students when I

I rev match pretty much all the time, but I have to work on double clutching. Feels awkward and slow, but the Tracker's 2nd synchro can be a bit grouchy, so it would be worthwhile.

What does the owner's manual recommend for oil? Have you tried anything like an 'old school' straight 30 weight? Did the small engine guy have any recommendations for what oil might slow it down?

Most alignment shop will check the alignment for free and show you the printout. If it's close, I usually just leave it alone but, it's good to see anyway!
