I won't lie to you all.
A) I'm not sure TRS is the place for this build. and B) I'm not certain this should be a build at all. and of course, C) Like all my other builds this will be excruciatingly long.

Also note that at the moment I don't have a camera so until I budget that in you don't need to add:

Pix courtesy the Craplist ad I found this toilet at:







I'm even trying Google Photos for this since Photobucket now wants $400 / year to be able to share my photos. Photobucket can go the way of MySpace for that.

Besides some repair parts (it didn't make it home from the PO's house & I still haven't fixed it as yet) I've bought a right side door with full power accessories since this things gonna need some comfort and redeeming qualities so I'll want to keep it.
And finally, I paid $850 for it. Its a 2005 XL fleet spec, auto 2WD with 624,xxx kilometers on the original 5.4 24 valve mill. (thats about 388,xxx miles.)

Stay tuned. It can't get much worse can it?

It looks really clean.

For added frills dad added XLT composite headlights to his '04 XL, the difference was literally night and day. If it was mine I would do the mirrors too...

My computer finally lost my password to the "prerunner" name and I can't find the email it was created with so I'm now wiggle_wagon. (Its the nickname to the Bronco II, btw.)

85_Ranger4x4: Yeah, there are a couple different kits for modern mirrors and they're on the short list.

Doofy: I'm pretty glad I got it. Its surprisingly clean for its mileage and use.

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

I would just do the dual post towing mirrors most Super Duties have.

Dad's is a Supercab with a tall service box on the back so it is hard to see much of anything behind you. A plain box with a standard cab probably wouldn't be so bad.

Kind of leaning towards these on Amazon or something fairly similar.
https://www.amazon.com/YITAMOTOR-Tow.../dp/B01ICMZC78
(these don't export to Canada, unfortunately.)
Locally, these are available from Torkparts.ca : http://www.torkparts.ca/accessories/...g-mirrors.html

Eventually I'll do the front clip swap to 2011 - 2016 sheetmetal and save myself buying a new one for a while. https://mcnastycustomz.com/shop?olsP...onversion-kits

For now, I'm just chasing some used truck gremlins and making it a more comfy dd. The previous owner had it stolen twice in a couple months so security is high on the to do list too.
