    1988 fuel guage - Tired of its lies

    So, my fuel gauge has never worked since I bought KaP. I used to listen to its filthy lies, and refill my tank every time it would read empty. Turns out, it says it's running on fumes when there's about 10 gallons used out of the 18 gallon tank. Tank and lift pump assembly are brand new...

    What the crap is this??

    Found this on eBay this morning. Looks like a super early version of a Turbocharger, but I have no idea. Never seen anything like it.

    60/40 seats from a 2000/2001

    Complete set of seats and an extra armrest (with cupholder) from a 2000 or 2001 extended cab. Can't remember which. Disassembled them and cleaned the upholstery. No rips, tears, or cigarette burns. Driver's side back seat frame has the support bars snapped off. Looks like a easy fix. I just...

    Need an entire first gen cab shell.

    Well. I thought I'd be able to save my cab. I was incorrect. Rear floor crossmember is too far gone to salvage, and I cannot find one of the weld in ones. Looking for a source of entire cabs. Would prefer a stripped one. Other than car-part and southern Craigslist ads, any suggestions?

    Shock debate...

    Ok, since replacing the springs on my extended cab, thw ride has been a little... Coarse. Truck handles 'meh'. Moog HD variable rate coils in the front, Husky 1750lb five leaf HD in the back. Overall, it lifted the truck 3" or so, but it feels solid now. Since then my KYB twin tubes have...

    So, I have seen photos of the first gen trucks with the auto hubs console on the roof. When I re-upholstered my headliner, I found the mount bracket in the ceiling. Does anyone know if an Explorer / whatever overhead console fits the ceiling contour of a first gen cab? Interested in using...

    Part number/source request - cab floor support

    Alright, I have the last rot area to fix. Need the rear crossmember for a 1988 extended cab. I don't know what to call the crossmember. Floor support, maybe? It's the sheet metal section of the cab that attaches to the cab mounts on the frame. Mine is TOAST. Found one online for $120...

    Interest in 2.9l Phenolic intake Spacers?

    Buddy of mine picked up a flatbed CNC. I'm itching to see what I can make on it. Haven't been able to find phenolic spacers for either a ranger or Scorpio intake (they are different), so considering knocking out a few spacers on his machine (these would fit either). McMaster Carr sells G-11...
