    Such a shame that people don't keep them up. I loved that I could hear the guy pulling around the bend because his water pump whines just like mine. Haha.
    I think the only thing I'd want now is one like yours- so I can maybe find parking without driving around the block 500 times.
    Hope you're keeping warm out there!

    Jake!
    It's been so much time I had time to find out I needed a new alternator! Haha. Went in yesterday. Found a great mechanic by total coincidence who drives the same exact truck as me! Learned a LOT in the past few days on the forum... I wish I'd gotten into this sooner.
    And yeah, the most common compliment I get is about the body. Mostly new Ford owners who had them long ago and want to talk about how much more "like a truck" they looked back then.
    Yours is still the coooolest! I'm rarely envious of someone else's truck, but oof. It's just too cool.

    That's awesome! I'm excited to get into finally getting that back sorted out. I have so much random stuff that migrates every time I turn! Thanks Jake!

    Have a great weekend
    Christa

    Well don't feel bad Christa, it's almost a month later before I saw your message . I either wasn't paying attention or it just didn't show up...lol.

    Most girls I know hate my truck and are afraid to drive it, they say it's too big and too loud (even though it's not even lifted). So any girl that drives a truck is okay in my book. Especially if that truck is an OBS.
    I have to say I've never heard of the accelerator spring breaking, that sucks.

    The outside dimensions of the box are: 52"L X 7"W X 4 1/2"H, which leaves room to put the seat all the way back, and you can grab the latch to tilt the seat without hitting your knuckles on it. And if you paint the box it will give it some protection from the mildew, should it come back, lets hope it doesn't...lol

    Hey Jake!
    Sorry, somehow I never saw your message. I'd love some measurements if it isn't too much trouble. The inner dimensions look standard, so they should work.
    I know exactly what you're talking about. I get sooo much crap for keeping/driving my truck. I got tires put on recently and the guy who did it spend 40 minutes lecturing me on why a girl shouldn't drive a truck and how I should buy a hybrid. Haha. It's awful. It's completely impractical, except that I'm in love with it. So, we're sticking together .
    Today my accelerator spring broke, so that's fun.
    The mildew is gone but I feel like it'll come back. I don't want to put a nice wood box back there just to have it rot... I've got buckets of damprid back there but with the rain I'm fighting an uphill battle.
    Thanks again and take care!! I have no idea how I missed your message. This place is wonky.

    It's a funny thing that spending all that money can make you so happy, though! Everyone I know thinks I'm crazy for sinking all this money in to my truck but every little bit is fun. I have a hard time deciding what to do next, because there's so much that needs attention.
    I started building a box for behind the rear seat after seeing yours and found soooo much mildew, so that stopped pretty quickly.
    Have fun out there!

    Your truck is PERFECT!! Given the chance (and the money) I'd want one just like yours.
