Engine/Trans/Transfer Case are all in my shop. lol. It used to not look so bad with the 31's, but when I swapped on the new rims and 235's, it really started to show.

Fun fact, the tires on that truck are the old ones from my Ranger.

F150 used to have a 300 straight 6. Previous owner ran straight water in it and the block rusted out. Took the motor apart, and found it was already .030 over.

Said screw it and decided to throw a 400 V8 in it.

What's amazing is I found all the parts for that truck locally. It's 35 years old. Yet I can't find jack crap for my 10 year old Ranger.

Then he could have the worlds slowest engine powered fiddy! It would be faster to get out and push.

There was a little sarcasm in my response haha. The guy I got my axles from tried to sell me his 460 for 350 bucks but I wasn't feeling that lol

I was searching Ebay for random crap and saw an ad for a black shorty console in Indiana. Clicked on the ad, and in the pictures I could see the chrome shift lever for the transmission peeking out in the corner of the picture. Messaged the junkyard and they said the truck still had the aftermarket shifters in it. Told them what I wanted, paid them $75, and now I'm pretty stoked.

I had messaged/called maybe 25 junkyards in the last few months trying to see if the trucks still had the shifters. Finally got lucky.

lol, thanks guys. I'll get pictures later when I get everything installed.

I forgot to get a picture of the truck after I took out the AAL. So, here you go. Looks a lot better in my opinion.



Also have this stuff waiting to go in. Still waiting on the spark plug wires.
