Oh I know how that feels man.A year ago I lost my Ranger, and I sold it since I was so distraught over it.But the guy who bought it fixed it up and now I kick myself for not keeping it and fixing it myself.I'm not about to make that mistake with the F100.

I picked up a new seat for the truck.It's from a 1980 Ranger Lariat,the same truck I got the woodgrain door panel trim from. I also got new 82-86 door lock mechanisms so I can have the top pull door locks instead of the slide locks.I also permanently mounted my Lariat emblems on the cab.The new seat will eventually be recovered in a Black/Silver scheme.I also took the center console out,it got to be too much wood grain. I may Redo it someday and cut the CB mount off and just leave the cup holders and storage compartment and find a way to strap it to the seat with the center seat belt.

Well,a couple new updates.Yesterday the F100 got some new moldings.I picked up a near complete set of Chrome w/Black Insert moldings off a 1980 F150 shortbed (hence the near complete set,I can't use the moldings in front of the rear wheel well ).I got the set of moldings for $5.I still need to find two moldings from a longbed for in front of the rear wheel well.And then today,the F100 got new carpet from a 1991 F150.I picked up the floor carpet as well as the carpet that goes on the back wall of the cab.It's blue,but it's a light blue which looks gray,so it works for now.I got both carpet panels for $6.Pics to come in a bit.The carpet has a couple stains that still need work,but the carpet still looks good.Doesn't smell either.

I picked up a 95 Dana 44 TTB the other day from one of my buddies.He's doing an SAS swap sometime in the future,and was just gonna scrap the D44,but I ended up getting it for $50.He kept the axles for someone else's truck,but I have almost everything else.I'm currently trying to figure out if I can swap to older(Early 80's) steering knuckles so I can use the early 80's brake stuff and not have to order brake parts for two different trucks.I need to pick up two Camber Adjusters,PS and DS axles,the knuckles,both spindles,and hubs from a donor truck.After that,it should be complete.The current Ratio is 3.54(some say 3.55).I'm not sure if i'm gonna keep this ratio or not.

I know everybody likes pics,so here's a couple.The axle has been cleaned up since I took these so it looks alot different now.

Getting rid of those rubber/steel pins is a big upgrade. The slider pins in the newer calipers allow the brakes to move much easier and release better. I'd consider using the '95 brake set-up. They also made some improvements on the hubs, too.

Nice truck though. I'd love to find one in that nice of shape.
