Unfortunately, I don't have anything else to add.

My Ranger has been my primary focus lately, and I still have some more work to do on it. It too may be getting a 4x4 swap soon, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back onto the F150.

Right now, the exterior and interior of the F150 are done. All that's really left is to rebuild everything on the chassis and fix the rust. Of course, those are the most expensive things to fix.

I'm hoping the F150 will be done before I turn 25. I'm close to 21 now, so that gives me four years to figure something out. I picked up the truck when I was 15, so it would be nice to have it going by the 10 year "anniversary".

I know how that goes. I started collecting parts for a model T hot rod project when I was about 13 and haven't really got it any farther done now then I did then. I have almost all the parts to put it together, but still looking for a couple things. Im 21 now. Sometime hopefully in the near future I'll get to working on it.

New intake, painted a few more accessory brackets, new thermostat housing, new distributor, NOS Ford throttle cable bracket, and probably some other things I'm forgetting.

Picture is missing the distributor, and I also traded the chrome valve covers for factory Ford valve covers for a more stock look.

Some more updates from the last month.







Sold the 92-96 saw blade wheels and bought a set of the factory 77-81 slotted mags:

The truck originally came with an in-bed spare tire carrier, as evidenced by the holes drilled into the bedside. A previous owner removed it, but a fellow forum member sent me one from his old truck.

Also, truck finally came back down on all four wheels.

Haven't really updated this in a couple of years, but I do still have the truck, and I'm finally in a place where I can start some more work on it.

Biggest update is that I decided to go with a different wheel setup for everyday driving. I'll be keeping the factory slot mags for shows to make the truck look more original.

I also installed some new tail lights to replace the cracked and broken ones from 1980.

Here's how it currently sits.
