Ok so I already have a build thread on our 89 F350 4x4 conversion so I figured what about our 6 other Fords I do alot to them but no where near as much as the 89 F350. So here is my solution 6 trucks in 1 build thread. So hear is the list and what is on them along with recent work done to them. I will post another reply of things to be done to them. Sorry tittle says 5 noticed I had more then said.
First is our 2002 Ford F250 4x4 Crew Cab V10 4.10 Gear ratio. I haven't done much to it. I have put running boards and a truck box other then that nothing. Our big hauler truck.
What it looks like now:
Next on the list our 1997 Ford Expedition 4x4 4.6L XLT. This is my mom's truck. Not much done since it is a new truck to the family. But we put new steering stabalizer bolts in.
Here is what it looks like as of right now sorry don't have a good pic of it by itself:
Ok so next our 1986 Ford F150 4x4 302 regular cab automatic everything. Only change is diamond plate bed rails. My dad's truck.

Now last but not least our 1984 Ford Bronco 2 4x4 manual tranny has new seats as of yesterday also middle console out of 1997 Ford Ranger and hitch reciever:
and interior by the way both seats are in just no photo yet with both seats in:
Ok so what I am going to put on each of the vehicles.
First the 2002 Ford F250 4x4 crew cab: I want to put on LED lights that come on when the doors open that shine on the running boards. LED lights maybe in the grille. I want to add a heavy duty transmission cooler in here to. Also Bushwacker bolt on style fender flares. Thier is already a 2005 front grille and bumper upgrade by the last owner along with spray in bed liner and slide and lock tie downs plus airaid intake filter and banks stinger exhaust.
Second 1997 Ford Expedition 4x4 XLT 4.6L: I want to rehook up the running board lights put a new grille in the current one is busted plus cd player.
Third the 86 Ford F150 4x4 302 XLT regular cab: We are going to put a brush gaurd on it I have just have to modify, find the tailgate emblem, slidding rear window, headache rack, and a hitch reciever which I have just need to put on.
Fourth: My 1988 Ford F150 4x4 302 5.0L regular cab Custom: I have sportcustom emblems I am going to put on it, brush gaurd, spray in bed liner, hitch reicever, a good radio, CB radio, a harley davidson seat cover, a harley davidson back window sticker, bed rails, ladder rack, truck box, a winch, headache rack maybe 92-96 front clip.
Fifth: Our 1989 Ford F250 4x4 351 windsor manual tranny XL: Spray in bed liner on flatbed, maybe 92-96 front clip, hitch reciever, on its way next friday captain chairs and middle console out of 86 F150.
Sixth: lastly 1984 Ford Bronco 2 4x4 manual tranny 2.8L: better paint job, a winch. A better radio later down the road.
So what do you guys think? Any opinions on what I should do no any of them got all open ears.
Ok so yesterday I picked up some front brakes for the expedition. I will be installing them soon. I took a dash cover for a 86 Fseries and put it on the 02 F250 for now will put a better fitting one on later. Plus I got two captain chairs and a middle console which will be going into the 89 F250 flatbed.
Ok so a few updates we have done with our trucks. Some pics of the 89 F250 4x4 flatbed painted. Got new used but barely tires for the 97 Expedition about a week ago running 265 75 R16 Goodyear wrangler duratracs on her. Paid $500 mounted and all for them. Then we found out recentely our 02 F250 really has 3.73 limited slip rear end but still good. Also got 2 tires for my 88 F150. Pics of 97 Expedition 4x4 and 89 F250 4x4 flatbed painted got to get some of my 88 F150.
The 97 Expedition 4x4 with her tires:
Been making fun of my buddies because my mom's expedition has meatier tires the thier big lifted Chevy and Ford 4x4s.
And a few pics of the 89 F250 4x4 Flatbed with its temporary paint. Wheels will be coming off and going on the 89 F350 4x4 conversion not mentioned in this thread got white spoke wheels going on here.
might tommorow get the courage to go out and fix the expeditions right rear auto door locks motor. If not going to work on our house.
Forgot to mention got an idea for the 86 F150 4x4. The old seat out of the 89 F250 4x4 flatbed I will be taking and bolting in the bed and also put some seat belts in thier. But we did get the hitch reciever on for sure.
Well today we took apart the 89 F250 4x4 Flatbed Taz. I took off the hood, right front fender, radiator support, head light assemblies, grill, and rocker shield. We readjusted the right door so that it closes right. I got the new radiator support in just a few more things to bolt down. Tomorrow will be working on putting back together the truck. We have to weld the cab from the accident it was in. Also need to straighten the rocker shield. Getting thier pretty soon this truck will be one nice pickup truck. We did all this with little damage to me (I got hit on the head by the hood and a few cuts and thats it). I have to get new headlight assemblies because both are trashed.
Hey guys thought I would show some pics of our 89 F250 since everything got fixed. That is everything but the hood. Need a new hood and good to go. The fender is on their the best possible it is good for road worthy but the cab was tweaked so it isn't perfect.
Ok so recentely we added a new vehicle to our club of vehicles. We have 1973 Harley Davidson XLCH 1000 that has lots of modifying. It has a springer front end a bob tail fender recentely had a rebuilt engine. Also has a sweet paint job on it. Currentely it needs a throttle cable, battery, the kick start put back in when we find one. Plus it needs a sissy bar added and a few more extras we want as we go on. It does need turn signals added too. So the work we have done so far is fixed the saddle bags and cleaned it up. Should be doing more work soon. So here are the pics.
If you noticed the saddel bags are mounted upside down. I flipped them over the very next day. The bike had a single seat and had a double seat added onto it.
This is a photo of me on it. My dad will be riding it more of but I will be learning on this bike.
the engine covers will be having the purple gone more then likely probably black or chrome.
There will be a front brake added onto this bike in the near future my dad doesn't want another bike without a front brake.
notice the saddle bags on the right side now.
Ok and our only non ford Vehicle that has 4 wheels. It is a 85 Chevy G20 Sportvan 305 under the hood. Originally it had a 350 but they changed it to a 305 thinking it would be getting better gas mileage. This van already has over 2k invested in by us. The Carb needs replaced again and fuel tank cleaned up also a new grille. Here is all the photos I have of it. This van will be with us until we get another good offer but not trying hard to sell it. Just another fun project.
Notice the chrome bumpers we added those because we hated the primer orange peel color. Also the ladder and wheels. Plus even more interior parts. It is a cargo van.
I like that Sportster, and agree with getting the Purple off of the side cases and putting a brake up front. Open spools look cool, but riding is dangerous enough with 2 brakes, let alone without the one that gives you most of your stopping power!
Thanks Wade I am hoping this coming week or next week I should have my 88 F150 4x4 running I hope it does run after this would love to have it on the road. Once I get my 88 running next is the bike and 89 F250. If you look in my signature my second link is to our other big project.
