    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!

    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...

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...

    89 Ranger 2.9 auto won't rev past 1500 when warm

    I was on my way to get my recently aquired 89 Ranger 2.9L Auto inspected and on the way it felt like it was losing power going up hills, until I had it floored and the engine wouldn't go past 1500rpms. At first I thought it was the trans taking a dump on me, but when I put it in neutral and...

    Did I get the right tailshaft seal?

    I ordered a tailshaft seal, or output shaft seal (driveshaft yoke goes into it) because mine is leaking. (86 Ford Ranger XLT 2.9L 5-speed 2wd) Of course the parts counter guy has it as there's 2 to choose from, the toyo koygo trans one and the mitsu fm145 one. I guess fm145, but on here it says...

    2.9L Cherry Bomb Extreme Dual Exhaust

    Finally got an exhaust shop to bend me up some mandrel bent pipes for my extreme, dual out 2-1/2 inch from the stock cat to the rear. Actually not that loud, doesn't drone at all and has a nice deep note to it, not the slightest hint of rice lol. I don't have a start-up video yet as it's been...
