Nameless Project - 1995 Ford F150

I guess its time to finally start a build thread on here..

When I bought the truck, it was a 1995 F150, 2wd, with a 4.9L/m5od-r2 with an 8.8" with 2.73 gears and a 3" body lift. First thing I did was bought some used 32" buckshots.



6 months or so after that, I bought a used 6" ProComp lift with extended radius arms. When I swapped in the lift, I installed a d44ttb/8.8" combo with 3.55s. And scored some 36x15.50 Dick Cepek Mud Countrys on closeout through 4WP.



Then some KC Daylighters, 150w.



Somewhere in there, I swapped out my porno red interior for a perfect condition gray interior. As well as a factory tach.






Swapped in a 4x4 ZF5 I picked up at a junkyard, as well as a bw1356.





Got some beadlock rims in a trade, so I ordered a set of custom rings for them from Creative Engineering Offroad.



Then finally got to take it wheeling at K2 (Katemcy), where I messed up my steering and twisted my rear driveshaft.



Took the body lift off. And right now, its sitting outside with the bed pulled off, and the rear suspension being redone. I'm planning a flatbed for it, swapping in a sky-manufacturing shackle flip, 7" USDR custom shackles from DIY4x, 3" wide 4x4 leaf springs, and an 8.8" with a full carrier detroit.





Also have a bunch of parts to start on a SAS. Waiting on coil springs, and am saving up money to buy or build a set of extended radius arms.

Thanks. I'm tryin' to sell it though. Its a great truck and all, but I really want something with A/C, and preferably a diesel. Been lookin' for a 94-97 powerstroke. Found a few I like, but the money isn't in my budget right now.

Please don't start the Chevy vs Ford crap in this thread please. I'm a Ford fan and a Chevy fan.

Looks like you've made some pretty good progress so far!Definitely a sweet lookin truck.

I've always hated red interiors,unless they were in a White/Red Tu-Tone truck.I would've done the same swap if it were my truck.

Good luck on the new plans!

Just take your time and idle up until you're about to hit the fender, then stop. When your truck is badass, you don't have it give it much gas, or "bump" up it.

SOOO MUCH FLEX!!!! It looks about as flexy as mine haha. But the SAS will defiantly help address that issue.

What springs are you running in the front?

Right now I have 6" ProComp TTB coils. With the SAS, I'll be running 6" Deaver SuperFlex coils. Already have them ordered, but JBG says they're backordered right now.
