Default new to me truck

so i sold my grand cherokee yesterday, and picked me up a truck,
1993 ford f150 standard cab, short bed,
has a 5.0 with only 60000 on it,
5 speed, new clutch, clutch slave cylinder, master cylinder, new brakes,
wiper motor, and all hoses replaced.
has long tube headers and dual flowmasters.
has a 2in lift with 31s.
was a texas truck no rust on the cab, only some rust on the bed.
very well tooken care of.
body has 175000 on it.
stole this truck with the price of 2200

only pic i got but will get more.
only work it needs is a exhuast donut (header)
and a tire sooner or later all the rest are 95 percent or more. (he had a blow out)
later on i want to put a little bigger lift on it and either fix the bed or replace it.

I agree. I had damn near its twin a few years ago, and it was fun to drive for sure. I'm pretty sure I seen this thing on the road last week, maybe on Frankenmuth rd. or somewhere over that way. Nice truck.

Good looking truck! Is your shifter loose and sloppy? my bronco was real bad when I got it.

I had to put a shifter repair kit in and 2 shift forks. there are some metal plugs on top of the shifter plate where the shift rods go that are common to leak. check them out.
