if it does what you need it to, it's a good truck, doesn't matter how it looks. Mine isn't much to look at, but now that I have a better exhaust on it, I'm pretty happy with it.

OH I have the nice truck this is to stop the extra intown miles on the big truck so I can use it for towing,a nd trips, and should be fun with the V8 in it if I can keep it straight, and keep from getting tickets.

Is that a really big Ranger, or a smallish F150? Or a combination of both like your mud truck ^_^.

I'm starting to think that next spring I REALLY wanna get into the 4-wheeling thing. Get an 71-79 F150 and just strip it out..seal up and rubber up the inside so I can just spray it out. Hell..who needs doors? ^_^ Doesn't matter what kind of shape...just has to 300 or more cubes, a C6 or T18/NP435, and hopefully 3/4 ton or better axles. ^_^

That truck does look like its in pretty good shape. What's it got in it, adn what'd you pay?

looks like a toy to me. I like it the 289 is a very fun motor (high rpms, high speed). I though at first you may have bought a 4 cylinder until I read the gallery. cool very cool.

His version of a 4-Cyl is A V8 that's missing four spark plug wires. ^_^

I had a friend try telling me his car had a V4 once. Crazy..it was some Pontiac pos. oh well.

funny saurian, I actually did something close to that this year, the first race with the cleveland, I was running modified class got clear through to the finals, and was one of 2 trucks still on the winners side and couldn't figure out why it was running so rough so when they stopped the class (they run one class down to the last 3 trucks then go to another class, and finish the classes finals at the end of the day) I drove back to the trailer lifted the hood to try, and find the miss, and found I had forgot to put one of the spark plug wires back on after working on the header bolts.
