Thats a fantastic find. Very sweet! Its so nice, I'd leave it alone for the most part. Maybe tint the windows, but its too cool just like it is.

What bedliner did you get? I still want to get a LineX for mine.

How bout an interior picture?

I'm planning on swapping on a chrome grill and chrome headlight surrounds, like the Bronco next to it. Any one have a pic of what it will look like with the silver bumper?

That would look nice. I'll suggest getting real Ford grille and headlight bezels. The aftermarket replacement reproduction stuff is complete junk from China. It doesn't fit well at all.

If you do that, you'll need chrome bumpers too.

Are the wheels chrome? It looks like they are.

The wheels, and bumpers are painted metallic silver, but the paint is perfect and shiny. Lol, the painted rims have even been waxed to keep them up.

That does look sharp.

I kinda like it with the base model stuff on it. I looks cool like that since you don't often see nice ones.

somebody call the cops! you didn't buy it you stole it! look at how clean that engine compartment is! I also changed the black plastic grill and light bezels for chrome. I also goat a chrome front bumper in pristine condition from an f-350. changed to look of the truck dramatically. I highly recommend it. Great find good luck with it! I am envious.
