I've been drooling over a Boss for years. Wish I had the money for one.
I have a 1979 F150 Ranger XLT, RC/LB, 351M, C6, 2.75, totally stock.
The other driveway member is a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Laredo, 4x4, 4.0L I6, 46RH auto.
We also have:
1968 F100 4x2 RC/LB 390 FE, .030" overbore, Crane Cams Hi-6 ignition, Mallory dizzy, ported heads, headers, Factory 4BBl intake, Demon 750 carb, RV cam, unleaded heads / 3 angle valve job Ford Four Speed OD toploader tranny
matt if you call my friend shawn, you know the number, he has that 67 sitting next to the garage, that car was in mustang monthly just a few short years ago , well maybe a dozen years ago, his dad has a 65 conv too that was in the same mag, i bet you could get it cheap as he has no idea which end of a torque wrench is. he just drove it, never much worked on it, i was surprised he knew how to get gas in it..
Well two rangers in my signature are mine, mine, mine. The explorer is my parent's and i get to use it here and there. I try to take care of it.
The '79 is my new project truck and my friend is helping me rebuild a 351W to drop in it. The truck as a whole doesn't need a lot of work to fix it up. It sat in a shed for the last 18 years, until last december.
The 91 was my first vehicle, and i still drive it. It's been a fun truck. Been camping numerous times, and lots of baja'n. It's only a 2.9, but it gets me from A to B and a little boggin in between. I'm considering upgrading soon.
I don't really drive the explorer much. It's my parent's, but i figured i'd mention it.
I also own a 98 chevy lumina. It's got 15k on the clock, and I use it to drive to work.(Most of my truck wouldn't quite grace the parking lot with their presence yet, although the 79 will soon.
See picture below.
black mountain bike ( does that count?)
and some of my other FOrds are in a hidden gallery off my regular gallery. Errrr...ones I used to own anyway.
(5:21AM) and time marches on........

1984 F-150 4x4 300-6 4 spd 3:55 gears LT30x9.50R15 298,000 miles (all original to my knowledge), grn w/ white mid-stripe, stock (?) bolt-on grill guard, bug shield (missing a piece and some screws), sun visor (needs re-painted and new bolts), headache rack/tool box (given to me from a friend for free)....paid $210 for it, put a max of another 3-400 into it in a year and a half...
I want to slap a straight axle front end under it out of a 78/79 4x4, so I have a stouter front end for beatin around the woods....
What I Want to Build:
80-86 F-250 4x4 Dana 60's front and rear, uncertain on gearing or tire size yet, possibly 3.73's w/ 33" traction tires, 87-97-ish F-250 ZF 5 spd, 300-6 bored slightly, zero-decked, mild port and polish on the head, holley 390 4bbl carb and matching intake, EFI split exhaust manifolds running into true dual 2 1/4" pipes into a pair of 40 series flows with turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle....
the F-250 is something i'd like to give a whirl, but it'll probably take a good bit of time and money before i get there....i'm hoping to be able to jump my horsepower on that 300-6 from a stock HP of about 125, to about 180, give or take some ponies...
