Project Farm Truck

Well here it is I bought this truck for $800 after I wrecked my Ford Ranger.



I literally bought this right off the guys farm. Couple things were wrong (actually alot of things) but I needed a new vehicle.

First off was the frame. Back half was rotted off.



Got all that fixed with some 4" C channel. after that was to the front end. New bushings tie rod shocks and coils.



F250 coils and shocks


After that was to find a better bed because the one I had was so rusted out.

Found this for $100 bucks



Actually only cost me 50 cause i scrapped the old bed at the same time.



Picked up a can of spray paint just for the time.



Built myself a headache rack.



And then i went to the junkyard and found a new grille and front bumper.
