I put some cheap 6.5 inch speakers in the doors and ordered a shaft style radio from Amazon.

Spent the last 3 afternoons changing diffs after the effie decided to become three legged without consultation..

Seems the diffs had a bunch of water in it for quite a while. I'd love to know who the brainiack at ford was that decided 9"s don't need drain plugs wtf.

Not exactly happened yet but I am about to trek in the mountains for the 5th time in two months to get another massive load of firewood. Man we go trough wood like crazy here. It has been very cold recently here where I live in the mountains. I live on Short Silica Mountain... which I believe is the highest mountain in Tennessee. 300 acres of property we live on now. Thank god for 4x4 lol.

When I was a young buck, every car I owned had portawalls & baby moons, was all I could afford, but gas was cheap then 20-25 cents a gallon.

I think it ugly, Thinking about taking all the 4x4 off the 83 and putting it on the 87 in the background!

You think the 83 is ugly, and the 87 is better looking? Interesting. I would say that is the opposite of most everybody I know.
