Well I traded my 95 ranger for this 92 F150, Its got the 300 I6 with a manual 5spd, and manual t-case. Its got a 4" lift with 35x14.5-15LT Thornbirds, the tires are too big for the truck.

So the plans:
-Bucket seats
-Rhinoliner on the floor
-Rmove all the rust on teh body which means a bunch of new body panels/patch panels.
-Body lift
-New paint job
-Solid axle out of a 78/79 Bronco and have the same susp lift.
-Roll bar or a cage
-Roll pan/ or a new unbent bumper
-Fender Flares
-35x12.50R15 tires (the 14.50's are too annoying)

I liked the ranger but I wanted this more, this is the main thing I wanted. I had the same truck before except for the fact that it was 2wd and a 91.

And once I get a "real" job, I want to buy a newer F150 (04-07) and a trailer.

better pics will be up tomorrow sometime.

It has a lil' brother :sonicjay:

It doesnt seem as great as I thought it was now that I own it :sonicjay:

I can't keep the truck clean for 2 seconds, the tires spit up so much crap.

that 300 I6 is a great motor. it should be a cool truck once you get rid of the thornturds.

kinda looks like my old BDMT, i miss it :(

They are definitly wider than 14.5 especially with those lugs. I cant even turn all the way when I turn because the tires rub so much on the radius arms.

Well, I got new tires and took out the bed liner. But I am gonna keep the old tires just in case I decided to sell/trade the truck. I dont want to get rid of some tight tires.

I got some brand new rims and brand new tires from some guy that decided to do a different project. They were never on a truck or onthe road.

The rims are some sort of eagles and the tires are 35x12.50R15 Goodyear MT/R's




They fit the truck a lot better. And I can turn all the way now :d:
