Kitchen sink? Check.

Never ceases to amaze me how much stuff I can haul with the excursion. Three girls a guinea pig and myself packed for a week. More like a month.

Sweet ride Chris. That thing looks to be in great shape for its age.

Is that a motorbike of some kind hiding back there? We have a motorbike thread too. Check it out.

Yeah, it has minimal bed rust and I found a little in the driver's side floor pan (only one hole the size of the tip of my pinky finger, but I haven't sanded it down good yet...). The tailgate is the worst and I plan to replace that. Needs new front and rear glass with seals and door and side window seals. Otherwise, it's mostly drive train maintenance and paint.

Good eye on the bike. My wife has a Vstar 650 Custom and I'm just starting to learn so I have a borrowed Sportster 1200 Custom.

Nice truck Chris. Real nice..
Since you have motorcycles, the next question is...how much do you like BBQ...

Then you need to check out the monthly dinner thread. Might be hard to get together because of the distance but who knows.

Looks like my truck may be for sale as parts soon. Long story short, I bought it in SC where it was titled (to the vin on the door) as a 77 F100. After cleaning it up and checking the part numbers and subsequently the vin on the frame, I found out it's a 76 F150 with some F100 panels (driver's door and I suspect the hood). Because of the NC titling on "antique" vehicles and VINs needing to match, etc. I won't be able to get a clean title here (rebuilt/salvage at best). Waiting to see if the guy I bought it from in SC is willing to take it back, but not holding my breath.

1987 F-150, affectionately called "Hillbilly KnightRider" thanks to my buddy's then-10yo son and the KnightRider bar I had just installed. 2" Daystar leveling kit, 36" tires, tools and gear and constantly adding more, cooler in the bed for....Beverages , HHO Generator, custom grill (took 3hrs to fabricate), 8 strobe lights, work lights (and adding more), custom spare tire rack (not mounted yet, found out I have to reinforce the factory bumper before it can even support the weight without flexing), and working on a LOT of other projects.

This is not long after I first got the truck a couple years ago.

Went through some things my truck shouldn't have made it through with those Equalizer Sport A/T 31's. They dug like H-E-Double Hockey Sticks to be no more aggressive than they were.

These pics don't show the toolbox or all the gear I have stuffed everywhere, but maybe that's done on purpose I'll be sure to post pics as I work on new things, and I'll post some pics of the tire rack I'm working on soon.

I've got an 81' F-100. I've owned it since I was 15. I'll be 29 this year, has been my one and only daily driver. Has 354,188 miles on it.
Dad tossed the keys at me and said "this one's on me, the next one's on you." I took him seriously!

The 81 f-100 sounds awesome. Feel free to share some photos of that jewel. I'm sure you have a few stories to tell in 354 thousand miles. Give us some more details. Welcome to the chapter.
