Almost, looked to be 3" suspension, and 3" body, with 38's

Sadest part is, This makes 5 dentside trucks, and 2 78-79 broncos...

Your right there, that's only about half my collection though (just my dentsides lol)

yeah, the po said it's either an 84, or 85 model block, I've got a 90' block in my 78' stepside 2wd pickup, and before I tore it apart to restore the truck it ran like a scalded hog!

Nice collection,
My full collection is
82,84,87,88,89,89 toyota 4x4 pickups (most are parts, the 87,88,89 are either good, or being worked on)
78,78,78,78,79 Fullsize Ford pickups (all but one are being worked on)
78,78 FSB (don't know yet)
84,85 Ford Ranger (grandparents vehicles, will be restored and garaged)
96 Explorer (no clue)
8? Chrysler Lazer (idea but no time)
68 Mercury Cougar (can't make up mind)
87 S10 (355 Drag truck)
58 Chevy 3100? Apache Pickup (gonna restore it, or trade it one)
95 Nissan 4x4 (DD, stubborn as a mule, but it gets good gas mileage)
I'm almost certain I'm forgetting something...

In the past 2 years I've traded, sold, or scraped
84, 92 camaro (miss the 84, 92, not so much...)
85 S15 (Gmc s10) (good truck, even better out of my way)
83 toyota 2wd (shoulda never got rid of it)
87, 99 Escort (miss my 99, it was my first car, and it was also my first totaled car (long story))
04 Hyundai Accent (shoulda never got rid of it)
54' F100 with a 351-C (????)
once again, I'm forgetting some...

Just a couple pics
(previously my 99 escort, looked worse in person, this pic still makes me hurt)
(rumor has it that it's on the road again)

Holy s**t man, thats a ton of cars! So far i have had 3. A 1982 Mustang GL with a straight 6 and a *working* 8 track player. Then my current 88 Ranger XLT and my 78 bronco. Even though i am only 20 (tomorrow technically) having already had 3 different cars is quite interesting. I find it is more about finding that car that you really want.

Repacked the front bearings and replaced the auto lockers yesterday. Replaced the headed panel today so my D/S Headlight isn't just hanging in the wind

Yeah, finding somewhere to stick them is getting to be interesting lol
Nice, I'm casually watching for a good buy on a mustang, you've had three good ones so far!
I'm 20 as well, just far to many vehicles...
Your right, the hunt is the most fun part!
