i like the exterior.... kinda.. but i REALLY like the interior, liking the moonroof. Too bad it's bad it is detrimental to the structural integrity of the truck...

What kind of gauges are those??? I want some white ones but want them to use the existing electrical. There are several on Ebay but they require you to install their own power inverter..

You'll have to get a sport trac gauges cluster if you want white one's with their own power.

It needs more of an equal drop. Seems kinda fishy its being sold that cheap, after being built at SEMA or something. Nothing really that special about it anyway.

its a nice truck and all.. but yeah, there's nothing special about it.. i dont like the seats cause they have the hotwheels logo on them.. and that C stripe they got on the sides doesnt look good. i do like the sunroof tho.. and the gauges look clean.

This is like the second time its been on ebay. I think it looks killer, minus the fake hood scope.

Fake to me is when it dosn't have the snorkle(or tube) that runs dirctly to the filter. So, I guess its not totally fake then, but he did make a good attempt of it.

yeah id consider it fake too.. it might be cooling the engine off somewhat, or whatever.. but the point of a shaker hood with that scoop is to direct air thru the scoop into the filter, etc..

it is a real hood scoop, but its not a real shaker. so, its fake. if it was like a GT scoop that would be good, but a shaker scoop with no shaker. fake

...we weren't expecting anything.. someone mentioned it was fake.. you said it was real.. we then mentioned why it isnt a real shaker hood, more or less an air scoop to cool the engine, if that.. and yes, it is much better than any of those tape on scoops.. i do like that he went ahead and installed it in a professional way rather than take the easy route.

That truck was featured in Ford Truck World magazine at one time. It's the one that convinced me to try a Hurst shifter. Not a bad truck, considering it's a rolling collection of aftermarket products (like mine). Not sure about that paint job though.

It was on ebay before selling for around $20K. i guess no one wanted it, so it's up for sale again. My guess is they started the bids low, but the reserve is still around 20K.
