Looks great, you are a brave guy, I love black and would have loved to shoot it, but my body work skills (none) kept me from even thinking about it. Congrats on a job well doneit came out real nice.

Very nice pair of Ford trucks.
Would like to see pictures of the top bows on the 4x4. What type conversion is that?

thanks a lot guys

raytasch, I will try to find some pics of the top bows on my pc somewhere..

the top is my own design that I fabbed up.

the 4x4 is also my own conversion using the stock frame, springs, and steering.. I just made the axles fit the truck....it is my daily driver.... I rack up around 20,000 miles a year on it and it has been working great the last 4 years.

Impressive Ford collection! The black truck looks great. I also love the look of the 4x4. Have you done a thread on that one?
