What Is And What Shall Ever Be The Standard For Real Deal Trucks — I have been driving my red Lightning everyday for 10 1/2 years and I still love hearing that sound everyday when i start it up. Parts are more difficult to come by than the newer Lightnings but are still widely available if your interested. Mine is dropped on a 3-5 Belltech kit with KMC stealth 20" wheels. I got 35 series tires in the front and 55 series tires in the back. No exhaust just straight pipe from the catalytic converter with two 3 inch pipes coming out the back. Hypertech power module with low temp thermostat and K&N intake. Clear corners with stealth chrome bulbs and diamond clear headlights with HID bulbs and euros in the back sittin above a smoothed out roll pan. There is also a huge monsta tachometer sittin on the dashboard with dark blue neons under the dashboard and a custom toggle switch i put in right next to the fog light switch. There is red neons behind the seats that come on with the truck. All the audio equipment in the truck is the Bazooka P.Miller line which includes two 12 inch woofers and a 1000 wat amp and also two 5 1/4" speakers in the doors with two 6 1/2" speakers behind the seats. I will never part ways with my truck and if you have one as well than you know just how I feel.

Pros

Black, fast and nasty looking. I can haul wood and beat Mustangs at the same time.

Cons

Poor gas mileage and dual gas tank switch always stuck

Pickup Truck On Steroids — It's a Ford F150 and it's not much to look at. But, you better watch out at the red light... this truck will eat you up and spit you out. Powered by a high ouput 5.8L V8, this truck is faster than my 88' Mustang GT. It's a gas guzzler but who cares, I just want to smoke the rear tires every chance I can. Too bad a young girl ran a stop sign and hit me head-on, totaled the truck. I didn't even have it for 2 years :-(
