    68 F100 360 FE 3 on the tree!

    So alot has happened with this ole girl since I updated last. Replaced head gaskets on the original motor twice with same results, the right bank pouring coolant into the exhaust and mixing with the oil. First set of gaskets was some generic ebay set, and second set was name brand fel-pro...

    2003 Ford Ranger Lowered 4/5 Project Daily Driver

    Not much has changed with my little ranger, Explorer center console is in, a few more stickers, etc. She's been a very reliable truck, and getting right around 30mpg's helps the wallet! This past week I thought I was going to have to tear out the trans and replace the slave cylinder, because it...

    DJM Lower Control Arms hitting mounting bracket

    So I've dealt with this issue for a year now and it's getting old, I tried searching to see if anyone else had this happen to them with zero results. My problem is this, I installed upper and lower DJM control arms on my 2003 ranger, and the lower control arms hit the mounting bracket pretty...

    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!

    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...

    68 F100 360 FE 3 on the tree!

    That's what I figured, I went ahead and ordered one. Advance Auto didn't have the right one in stock of course or I would've fixed it by now lol.

    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...
