Nice Vehicle — It is cheap and i mean cheap to keep running easy to maintain easy to customize. It breaks good and accelerates good after i put a few engine mods in it. It is a very good truck and its fun to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Old School

Who Doesn't Want A Cool Old Truck? — This was my Dad's truck. My borther and I have made many changes to it, such as: removed the original 6cyl and 3-on-the-tree and replaced them with an EFI 5.8L V8 and AOD automatic transmission. We also cut out the original steel dash and replaced it with a complete dash from a 93 Bronco. lowered approx. 4 inches all the way around and we just designed our own custom intake manifold. If it works according to our theory, we should see HUGE gains in mpg AND power.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: BUILT FORD TOUGH

Cons: finding a good solid SWB box is nearly impossible
