    68 F100 360 FE 3 on the tree!

    Well I got rid of the Ford "trapeze" setup for the throttle linkage, noticed a big difference doing that, the pedal used to bind and stay pushed down, and now it revs and returns to idle like normal. All for $2.50 for a piece of ready rod lol. I plan to add some nuts to the ends to prevent the...

    68 F100 360 FE 3 on the tree!

    Changed the mirrors from the trucker mirrors that stick out 10 feet to some smaller "cali trucker style" ones I've had laying around for years. I think they look tons better, especially on a 2wd truck lol Quite the difference lol Still want to find a rear bumper for it, the no bumper look...

    68 F100 360 FE 3 on the tree!

    68 F100 360 FE 3 on the tree!

    So I recently sold off a few parts I had laying around, because I went with a friend to a guys house where he bought some parts, well he had a 68 F100 in the garage and I commented I wish I had one like it. Well he said I'd let it go for 2K. Done deal haha. The truck is very solid, only needing...

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    nevermind on the explorer buckets, I gave up trying to make them work and ended up putting some early 2000's camaro buckets I had in. I had to make two small brackets to adapt the seat to the ranger rails, but it worked out great and isn't going anywhere!

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    So I got some bucket seats out of a 2000 explorer, drivers side power passenger side manual slider, and I swore I read on here that they were direct bolt in. But I found out they're not. The front bolts bolt up fine, but the rear bolt holes come up short, with the out side mount basically...

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    Quick update, I got my new rims and tires on and mounted, installed my c-notch in the rear and have been loving this thing so far. I do need to do some more dremeling on the front lower control on mount on the rear mount, as the DJM LCA's hit there before they hit the bumpstops, which I found...

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    I'm either gonna sell them or save them to throw on my 71 F100, because she needs tires pretty bad, but is also a ways from being street legal again lol

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    Now most recently i've bought some new tires, and plan on putting those on my black rims that came with the truck, because obviously the 235/75R15's were way too big. The mustang rims are only temporary because that's all I had to fit for now. Still waiting on the tires to come in but they...

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    So I've been out of the ranger game for the last 7 years. My last one was an 86 Ranger with dream beams and a flip kit, and I loved that truck, but I sold it when I joined the Air Force. fast forward 6 years later, I'm out of the Air Force, and traded my 2001 Dodge Dakota quad cab for a 2003...

    1986 Dodge D50 Tough Truck

    Hey guys, I just traded a friend a 97 explorer with a locked up motor and rusty frame for an 86 Dodge D50 2.6L 5-speed. But this isn't your ordinary D50, this one has been fully gutted, F150 springs in front (Does NOT move much lol) full roll cage, boxed/plated/gusseted frame, welded rear, the...
