First off thanx for allowing me to join. I currently have 2 ford trucks a 74 f-150 2 wheel drive big block back by a c-6 and a ford 9 Custom Silver paint with a charcol stripe. And my Current project a 1980 ford f-150 4x4 that I am in the process of swaping in a 302 to replace the 300 inline 6. When done I hope to have a nice ride with good power the 302 is out of a 85gt and I will be mating to the 4 speed that came in th truck. Currently the truck has 32 11.5 15s but in the future id like to put a 3 inch lift in and put 35 or 36 12.5 15's Thinking of painting it black and gold when all the bugs are worked out shes a pretty sad looking truck right now but we all gotta start somewhere.
Welcome to our little corner of the forums!! Anyway, any Ford trucks are accepted, we can't go by looks, or I couldn't be here!! Mine is a workhorse, and although it doesn't look as bad as it could, it certainly isn't pretty.

the other workhorse 92 F350 2wd crew cab,3.55 rear axle, 92 6bt Cummins, NV4500
