Current Stepside pics

OK so I have a soft spot for the 80-86 Stepsides. I have two now but I will probably have to sell one. I can't aford 3 trucks. I would love it if some of you Stepside owners could post pics and a little info on the truck. It'll give me ideas for mine. Sorry the pics aren't the best but all i got for now.

1980 F-100 5.0L 4spd 2x4 Non a/c truck, manual brakes, p/s, sliding rear window, fixed wheel. No power locks or windows. a BIG prodject and needs help. May have to sell


1986 F-150 bad 5.0L 4spd 4x4 A/C truck no power locks or windows, has p/s, p/b, Tilt wheel, sliding rear window, Auto hubs. This too is a prodject byt It's what I want so i'll do my best to keep it.

Looks like a fairly clean truck. I love the clearence lights!! I hope to ad some to my 86.
Thanks for posting up a pic. I know the pain with it being to cold!!

In your pic it looks loike your at a Pick n Pull yard. Is that where you got it from? I often see to many good trucks/cars in them.

That is a very sweet looking truck!! I love the black grill & bumpers. Looks like it just came off the show room floor!!!! Great job on the interior, The red & black look good.

Beautiful, but I have to ask...how are you bolting down the bed? My 1981 bolts through the floor and is quite rotten, allowing the bed to move up and down on the right side...how did you pull this off?

The bed bolts down as per the original. It's all new wood and so just took measurements from the original

looked at my bolts and they have a hex head so they aren't original,holes are about same size as seatbelt hex heads,probably not a bad idea to get that style,be easier to remove,here is a pic of my wood floor

Thanks I they are U.S Wheels Smoothies, I got them off summitracing.com. They actually were the only ones I could find that didnt have a racing sort of style to them and also had the right backspace since I need the clearance, it being lowered.
