I could be wrong 'cause it's been a while since I looked at one, but I thought the early trucks had welded nuts on either side of the stake pocket, forward for the tail lights, rearward for the gate...

Vern, let me just say truck or no truck, I've always seen you as one of the 'go to' guys here and am glad you're planning to continue hanging out with us. And I'm happy you'll get more cruising time,...

Just goes to show what location and larger audience will do for price. It's way more than I'd pay for it. I may need to rethink some of my stuff for sale if this is an accurate barometer of the...

Au contraire kind sir. On the early Bonus Builts, and earlier Fords, there was a toggle switch which operated the dash lights.

It depends on what you want the truck to do. Most vehicles today use an overdrive transmission for better fuel economy and for a more quiet ride at higher speeds. A C6 is a great transmission, but it...

By the time I got this far into the thread, the others have already said what I was thinking, and quite well. We're not missing the question, you're missing the answer. Really, we're trying to be...

After you slosh the stuff around, you could probably just blow some compressed air through the tube to make sure it's clear.

Stick with the quality name brands, ie; Heidts, TCI, Fatman, No Limit, etc. Air Ride Tech is a very good place to look for a full bag kit. Skimping at the beginning of your build on suspension won't...

I'd go for the 16 over the 22 if it were me. 22 gauge is pretty flimsy stuff. 16 is way overkill. Better to keep looking for 18 or 20 gauge. My 2c.

Dropping the pressures in the rear to 30 probably wouldn't hurt a thing, and could improve the ride even more. It's just a matter of playing with it and seeing how far you can go. Nothing to be...

Welcome to the forum! I'm not aware of anyone who reproduces the fender extensions for the F2 and larger trucks. They will interchange from series F-2 through F-6. Actually, the shape is the same on...

Cool truck. The FE transplanted in there looks like it belongs. It'll make someone a fun project.

Welcome to our neck of the forum woods. For long tube SBF headers, I don't think there's too many options. Headers for the early Mustangs/Fairlanes from most header makers I know all interchange. And...
