Default 95 F150 AKA moneypit

I have a 95 f150 that i have been constantly modifying, and i have come to the shocking conclusion that i have yet to share with you all.

It started life as a single cab short box 4x4 with a 4.9 and a 5 speed. The truck had been sitting in a field for roughly 8 months before i bought it. It was not running, had no clutch, and the driveshafts needed to be rebuilt.

I brought it home and fired it up only to find that cylinder 5 was dead, cracked the block. So it got pulled and nixed. Luckily i found a 302 on this great site (thanks again bigbchevy) and i bought it. Put in a new clutch system, harness, computer, engine frame brackets, radiator, and a 5.0 with maf. topped it off with some 33" duratracs.

It always bothered me how the front end sagged 4 inches, so i bought what i thought was a 4 inch lift, also off a member on this site, and installed it. Only it wasnt a 4 inch, it was a 6 inch. So i leveled out the rear, and posted a wtt ad on cragslist. A man called me with some 35" pro comp xtreme mt's. we met on miller road and exchanged tires, and with it being the christmas season, that is where i left off.

I dont have the pics of motor swap anymore, so all i have are the before and after after pics lol. First one is it in the field, next on with bigger tires is when i got it going, and the last is what it looks like now minus the 35's. And it looks uneven because of cam angle haha.
