This '98 NASCAR truck is my first 2x truck

I am real excited about my recent purchase of this 1998 NASCAR truck. It is my first 2x truck...well not counting my 2004 F150 "Sunday-go-to-meeting" truck.... I have ever had. I have had counting my '04, I have had 23 trucks and all have been 4x's (well except for my '66 Ford Drag truck...well, you cant classify it as a "truck since I cut the bed out to accept the 35" tires to anchor the 1100hp Windsor/Cleveland/Ford Racing motor in it)...LOL...I still laugh every time I think of that truck.....I raced it as a bracket racer but in this particular night I was at Ware Shoals S.C drag strip in a heads up race...I knew that truck would turn 8's which I had been racing it in the 10's....anyway, I turned it loose, broke the bars, flipped the truck, mashed the rear and the cab....so they were this guy that was watching my truk and my friends (Good Vibrations..a 9 sec shvy2) anyway he wanted the wrecked truck ...really he ust wanted the motor I built.

So, This is really the first 2x I have owned. Every 4x I've had, I have lifted it(I guess I am compensating for an inadequacy....LOL (no but really, do ya'll get a rash when "it" rubs against your knee constantly?

But I really enjoy that NASCAR truck. It's got just enough passing gass, its got comfort(Although my 04 is loaded..)..I just like that NASCAR truck.......aint that what matters?

I wish knew who's picture I was stealing off of google because his truck and mine look just that the same and I never once proclaimed your beautiful truck to be my own!!

This truck is about to as close to getting to the "feel" of a "supercar" as one can get in a truck. I once had a '94 Nissan 300zx turbo and when you sat down "in" it, it felt like a cockpit (Which was a cop magnet). At the time it was the fastest mass production car made (at that time). And it felt so great. Well I have set my *** in a many of great trucks as well....i.e. from my own drag truck that would turn 160+ in the 1/4 mile, from my own 12-14" lifted CJ5, from my hunting buddy who has a very nice 2010 Lincoln truck. I just Like that in-between status. I have that "nite" with 35's and 2 lockers and it will go pretty much where I want to go, then "now" I have the '98 NASCAR Truck with that poor *** 4.6 but has potential...then I have of course my '04 Sunday-go-to-meeting truck(just a plain ole' dual cab white Ford).....

I just wonder how strong that 4.6 in the NASCAR Truck and how far can I push it? I dont want to go too far as I am tired of getting 8 mpg....so a turbo or blower would be great if it can handle it. I know the same "blown" motor is is the "Lightning and in the "Super Coupe's"......

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OOps: Edit...the Super Coupe had a V-6....sorry...I forgot...just a brain fart

The Gen 2 Lightning is a supercharged 5.4...not the 4.6.

As has already been stated, the Gen 2 L's have the 5.4L engine. The Gen 1's have the 351W.

Also, Stock and mildy modded Gen 2 L's will give you 15+ MPG city/hwy driving.

Those NASCAR trucks are pretty cool. You do not see very many any more. I think a lot of owners removed all of the decals and kinda of destroyed what they were by taking them apart. I haven't seen one up this way in years.

Thanks Taylor, I'm actually a huge NASCAR fan, so I enjoyed seeing these cool trucks when they hit the street back in the day.

I'm heading down to Charlotte NC in a few weeks and staying in Mooresville with a buddy. I'll probably check out the Hall Of Fame and a few of the race shops. We're hitting the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday, gonna be a long race...lol

Just be safe and think about me when you hear 36,000+ hp crank up at the beginning of the race

You won't be disappointed.

Because of Tony and 1A's support of FTE, 1A Auto has gotten quite a few of my dollars!
