Which was your favorite?
Which was you least favorite?
And why?
Which one do you think looked the best, and then which one rode the best?
The most reliable?
Most favorite: 1971 F100 Ranger XLT, which IMO was the best looking of all of them.

Least Favorite: 2004 F150 Lariat Crew Cab. 6 warranty claims the first year. One for the trans that went the first week, 5 for the 2 front brake rotors that had to be replaced FIVE times due to brake judder.

Most reliable: All but the 2004, because none of the others had ANY warranty claims.

Never paid much attention to the ride, but the 1968 F250 Ranger prolly rode the hardest. I also made the mistake of buying this truck with a 4 speed, which I soon realized was not the kind of trans one wants when driving in LA LA Land's in-famous stop & go traffic.

Well, here it is. This is my rendering of what I want my truck to look like...stripe and all. It may be a bit different from the drawing because I haven't decided 100% on the color just yet. It will either be this way (metallic blue with white stripes and white wagon wheel rims), or it will end up being a dark "gun metal" metallic gray with the stripes being jet black and the rims would then be black Cragar Soft 8's. Thanks to everyone for all the info and help to locate the actual stripe that I originally thought was for a bumpside.

Yes, I did draw it. I appreciate the comment. I have been seriously thinking about a gray/black combo only because I like black wheels and dark paint.

There are no stripes of any kind illustrated in the 1964/72 Ford Truck Parts Catalog for F100/350's, no part numbers are listed for stripes, either.

What you are describing are either aftermarket stripes or more likely...someone painted them on....using their own design.

From your description, there was no stripe like that used on any 1973 and newer Ford trucks.

I have a 1975 ford supercab that has thesestripes - D5TZ-1320000-B white, any idea where I can buy aftermarketreplacements?

1972RedNeck is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.1972RedNeck is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I don't think that any are available. There might be some NOS, but there is a really really high chance that they won't have any "stick" left.
