do you have a solid front crossmember or the two piece? if you have the two piece front tow hooks are going to be tough to put on

unless youre being towed out by an r/c car or you dont have a valance, mounting those to your frame will rip off your valance on a 98-00

my original plan for this summer was to take the valence off and make a skid plate. recently i have been looking for a 4wd play toy though. and i have found a 1977 f-100 4wd with a 390 big block backed by a c5 or c6(not sure) 4 speed with a granny gear out the **** and im not sure what kind of transfer case or diffs but it runs good and all but for 800 buck what can i say? if my folks will let me ima get it

You're confused. I banned 02rangerfx4 for his repeated racial comments and generally excessive stupidity both in this thread and others. Your friend is not banned and neither are you.
