THIS is what ill be driving

ok, this is my list of mods and upgrades that ill be doing to my 71 f100. ive been working on this for the last couple years and its still changing, but pretty solid as of now..

let me know what ya think,, the notes are kinda just for my thinking.

Interior Mods>

1) Cobra 29LTD Classic CB <O></O>
I gotta’ have one, and Cobra 29 is one of the best.
2) Ford Floormats
3) New radio and speakers
4) Trailer Brake Controller<O></O>
To run trailer brakes<O></O>
5) Gauges <O></O>
So I can keep an eye on the essentials. Like Tans Temp, Volts, Vacuum, Oil Temp, Trans Press<O></O>
6) Fuzz Buster <O></O>
To catch the Fuzz, before the Fuzz catches ME<O></O>
<O> </O>
<O> </O>
<O> </O>
<O> </O>
<O> </O>
Exterior Mods<O></O>

1) 16"x8" Pacer Black Daytona Wheels and LT245/75R16 BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Tires<O></O>
It has 31x10.50-15 tires on it now. This way I can have awesome black wheels that have red and blue stripes with tires that are Bullet-Proof, keep the same overall diameter and go 3/4" narrower to aid fuel mileage. <O></O>
2) Receiver Hitch <O></O>
I know I'll be towing, pulling, tugging, dragging, yanking and it would be nice to have a solid frame hitch instead of the bumper.
3) Tow Hooks<O></O>
So I have a place to hook on with the front, for back pulling and recovery, have them bolted to the frame horns.<O></O>
4) Rectangular Exhaust Tips<O></O>
5) Window Visors<O></O>
6) Classic Lund Sun-Visor<O></O>
These things look great!<O></O>
7) Mack Customs Front Bumper<O></O>
The stock front bumper isn’t the strongest unit, so I’ll build one out of some big C-Channel. So I'll be able to smash into things, plow through things, push things, and generally have a mean looking, stronger than strong bumper<O></O>
8) More Lights <O></O>
Back up lights mounted IN the rear bumper, driving lights mounted in the grille, big 100 Watt 6" off-road lights behind the grille, cargo lights integrated into the headache rack, I'm gonna go with new halogen headlights too. The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned<O></O>
9) Calvin Pissing On the Chevy bowtie<O></O>
You know, the rear window sticker<O></O>
10) Mack Customs Headache Rack<O></O>
11) Tinted windows<O></O>
To make it a little “Cooler”<O></O>
12) Paint Job <O></O>
Gloss White for the body, black on the bumpers, rack and mirrors<O></O>
13) Ford Mudflaps<O></O>
Nice heavy duty mounts so that they can be used for steps.
<O></O>
<O></O>

<O></O>
<O></O>
Drivetrain Performance Mods

1) High Output 3G Alternator<O></O>
3G refers to an alternator off a '90's ford, and I figure with everything on full-blast pulling a trailer at night I could potentially draw 100 amps, needless to say the stock 65 amp alternator just won't cut it. 3Gs put out double at 130 amps<O></O>
2) Hooker Headers <O></O>
So it breathes easier, resulting in more Power and Torque plus better mileage<O></O>
3) Mack Customs 2-1/2” T.D. Exhaustâ <O></O>
The pipes are only 2” now and I have to re-route it so I’ll build an all-new custom 2-1/2” system.<O></O>
4) Thrush Welded Mufflers<O></O>
When it comes to hot rod mufflers, Thrushtops the list for a bottom price. Ha-ha-ha this is gonna sound GOOD!<O></O>
5) Exhaust Cutouts<O></O>
Just so I can open it up to play race car and REALLY raise hell and have fun if I want to<O></O>
6) Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold<O></O>
7) Edelbrock Performer 600 Carburetor<O></O>
I've got one, sitting, just waiting for me.<O></O>
It’s Edelbrock… need I say more?
8) High Performance 14" Air Filter<O></O>
9) Cam<O></O>
It's not a true a hot rod without a Cam, <O></O>
10) High Performance AOD Transmission <O></O>
By Swapping in this I’ll have a .67:1 OD and 4 gears. This should improve fuel mileage by around 15% with the gear change. Ill buy one and build it with a TCI Master Racing Overhaul Kit, Trans-go, and a tight converter<O></O>
11) Transmission Cooler<O></O>
Around here, everything needs a cooler, and it's essential to the life of the Tranny. Plus, I'm gonna be WORKINGit sometimes<O></O>
12) 3.50 Rears<O></O>
13) Detroit Locker<O></O>
Cuz I'm gonna need all the traction I can get, Locked Traction<O></O>
14) Power Brakes<O></O>
I just need to add a vacuum booster, and possibly go with front discs, ill need a '73-'79 donor <O></O>
15) Electric fans <O></O>
Electric fans would free-up Horsepower, increase throttle response, increase mileage, and potentially cool better.<O></O>
<O></O>
<O></O>
<O></O>

Miscellaneous Additions<O></O>

1) Optima Red-Top<O></O>
2) Low-Profile Toolbox<O></O>
I think that I’ll probably need one to keep the Equipment in, cuz it doesn’t have much room in the cab.
3) Hood lock<O></O>
I don’t want people being able to open it up
4) Horns<O></O>
Calvary Charge or Dixie horns, Fire Truck horns, or just semi horns would work; I've got some electric boat horns that would be cool too<O></O>

well, still sounds like a sweet ride...

I had a pristine low mileage (relatively( 72 camper special f250 that i let get away. It was my parents and when they split it Got sold off because i didnt have the money or knowledge at the time do do anything with it. what a beats she was..the previous owner had hopped up the 390 a bit with intake, crab and cam and .30 overbore. She would get along all right. And for that matter i shouldnt have sold the 84 either but i wanted a 4x4. Which i still havent gotten yet..go figure. Hindsight is 20/20

oh yea, for sure! its gonna be real nice. kinda a sleeper. the list keeps getting tweaked and refined.

i figure my total price will only be around the 3,000 range. and thats accounting for stuff i havent accounted for. so its gonna be a great truck for that money!

I think youll be well over the 3 grand range.

You said a high performance AOD. Thatll be close to 3 grand alone.

A set of good tires will run $600 or better.

Just a cam itself will be $300 if it doesnt require springs and a torque converter. But you did say a tighter TC later on. They can run $300 and up.

A mechanical locker is $500 and goes up from there with electric and air lockers.

A good set of gauges from Auto Meter goes for about $70 per gauge, not including shipping. 4 gauges = $280. A tach is a different story

Eddy Intake $300

Theres $2200 without the AOD... Not tryin to be an azz but I think youll have well over $3000 if you build it right

no no, right around three. 4 at the top.

i know how much things CAN cost, but i get them alot cheaper than retail price.

and when i say a high performance trans, i mean that im going to build a trans...i built my 4r100 trans with HD cluthces, shift kit, and triple disc low stall billet converter for only $680 and my labor... no bull.

my wheels that i want for instance, $71 each. heres the link.
16x7 White Wheel Pacer White Spoke 5x5.5 - Rims - White Spoke - White - 5x5.5 - - 7 - 108.70 - 0
sure they're just plain steel wheels, but thats what I want.

and the BFG commercial tires that are going on them? my buddy runs a tire shop, i get them at cost from the wholesaler. so about 500-600 for those.

i dont want to be an *** either, but i dont like it when people try to tell me what im doing. ive got the numbers, ive added them up. sure the more stuff i add the more it will cost, but for now,,,,,,

Garret those are the style wheels we have on our 1989 Ford F350 crew cab I really like those myself. Tell your buddy I need some BF Goodrich TA KO's in 265 75 R16 2 sets and I could use them at that price.
Garret what are you going to do for a radio and speakers you got to have a good stero system in your truck. I really like Sanyo or Pioneer radios they do great. I also like sony speakers.

I never said anything about how your doing anything? I was just stating your $3000 budget will be close
