thanks for the compliments guys.I have been asked if it was an EB edition,but I don't think EB was available in the flareside. It doesn't say it on the truck anywhere,it is an XLT though. To be honest when I 1st bought the truck,I didn't like it because the bed was smaller than a normal size bed and I could haul less,but the looks have grown on me,don't think I can get rid of it now

really? that explains it....i bed a 87-91 would look cool with one of the 92-96 flareside beds on it...

If I had this truck, I would definitely keep the stepside bed thats on it. Its the older style but had the newer style wheel wells, and its rare.

that is a good looking truck,I often wondered why you never saw too many 87-91's with the flairside.
9.ford.5 I think your truck would look awesome with a flairside box on it,really set it of with the lift and tires.

i think im gonna keep the style side though

i love the look of the flaresides too but around here they are really expensive where i can fix me styleside for almost free and not lose that space

bigblueflareside has a truck almost identicle to mine with flareside, its 6" lift 35"tires and came color without the stripe, his is a bit more fancy and clean though...looks awesome...

I'm still undecided,I did buy the box because the price was right and I can't loose.
but the long box is alot more usefull.but I do love the short flair look.

your truck looks great bill,if it had a live front axle under it,it would be exactly what I am looking to make,but its still an awesome truck either way you look at it,I always love seeing the pictures of it.

Thanks a lot Fred, I really appreciate the kind words. Believe me I wish it was 4x4. I don't have any problems getting around when the weather is bad, but let's face it; when the fit really hits the shan, nothing else makes up for those front tires pulling.

Your truck looks great,Bill.There are several good things about 2WD.One is the ease of driving,I have 2WD and love the steering,really handles sweet,of course I don't do off road,but that's not why I have the truck.When I go to my other house up in the upper peninsula it's 365mi.,mostly 75mph freeway and it handles that great and the other thing is that it gets 20mpg doing it.I really don't mind 2WD when my friends are shucking out big $$$$ to get front end work or parts done.There are a few times when 4x4 would be nice,but 95% of the time,I don't need it and my wife's Explorer is 4x4,so I'm not going to be without wheels when the snow gets that bad.I was raised on 2WD,so I get around pretty good.My buddy is like an old lady,we get 2"of snow and he's in 4x4,I'm driving 65mph on it with my 2WD.lol.

I kinda feel the same way. More to maintain and to swap gears is twice as expensive and twice the headache. Less weight. I still wish she was 4x4 tho! I looked awful funny the other day spinning on ice in a truck tha looked like it was 4-wheel drive. lol!
