Dude, you took pictures in a cemetery?

Hard to say what wouldn't make it look as long, but i would start with some new wheels.

I agree that the short-wheelbase trucks are a little sportier looking, but then again they can't close the tailgate with a sheet of plywood in the back. Makes you glad when you see nissans with 4ft beds and 4 feet of lumber hanging out the back..

You should try breaking up the outline of a 172" wheelbase F-250. My truck looked schoolbus long when I bought it, and at a hair over 22' long, it's not just a look!!. The diamondplate aluminum crossbed box did wonders for making it look not quite so monstrously long.

Dark paint and chrome or polished rims and some chrome trim will help.... The "bling" draws the eyes away from the body line.

Thanks for the good idea.

Thanks. Those are some good ideas. I will get working on those as well as the other restore stuff.

Brian_B is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Personally, I think its really stupid, but here is their reason.

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=170397

I have no problem with spam. I use a very good filter. My address is posted all over the net as well as on several sites. If I post my address, I want it posted.

They seem to even remove it from a PMs usually.

I tried several times to send my address to another member and it was blocked every time.

Try it like this: blb1408 "at" hotmail "dot" com. Usually that works.

As far as the long question goes I have a 77 4x4 with a long bed and I have side mount boxes on it it breaks it up a bit but having a 4x4 also helps, but my 93 is always long looking, long bed extended cab, the 35 in tires helped a bit...

Lightbulb '70 inside the cab AC & heater:

I have a unit that is inside the cab for AC and heat. It takes a lot of room. Does anyone know the steps to removing it and instaling a regular heater unit?
They even had to take the glove box out to get it to fit.
Thanks,
Larry

I'd have to see it to make any suggestions, but id say go to a junkyard and pull the factory heater box. Hopefully whoever put that in didnt cut up your firewall too bad.

I have a 72 parts truck that has that all complete, i think with factory a/c..

I have the unit to put in. I was just wondering about the problems I might run into pulling the unit out of the inside cab and installing the regular one that I have. I will check the fire wall for damage.
