I clean them with this and a stiff brush.

Nice looking truck! I love those turbine wheels, especially on a black truck. Exhaust sounds good too. What size (length) glasspacks are you running?

Pretty much the same situation as mine was in.... Straight pipes are loud as hell especially when they dump anywhere near the cab, but obviously you already knew that

I had mine dumping like yours before the rear axle for a while, then I bought some pipe and fittings and clamps and got it out from under the truck and man it makes a hell of a difference in the exhaust note. I have mine coming out at 45 degree angles right before the rear tires. Looks good and sounds even better. Only cost me about 30 bucks.

What is the size and offset of your wheels ? We have a 1976 F250 Highboy and it still has the standard steel wheels and hubcaps on it.

Dang sharp truck and I like the rims BTW.

Yes those look like Ford factory bed rails. They mount in the factory stake pockets with a metal tab that goes in the hole and then tightens up with a bolt. No holes in the top of your bed.

Yes that also looks like a factory push bar, and no JBG do not stock them for full size truck/bronco only EB.

What kind of tach is that? I have mine in the same location and its not working right. From what I've been told I need another one. I can't seem to by one only to take another chance of it not working.
