the 98 would be cool if it wasnt beat to hell riding on 93 rims ... i say go for the 97 if you trust your buddy and know he maintained it good

welcome to the board

edit: oh and gas mileage may be slightly better in one of these trucks but not by much esp on 33s with no regear

97 all the way, you get the TTB which is so much better for playing.

the 98 will be better for resale though since it is an actual ford, newer and auto, so if you plan on selling it any time soon you may want to consider that one only for resale.

oh, and what does "everything done to it" mean? So it has 2.5t rockwells, 54 boggers lockers, nos, 460 .... sorry to taunt but be a little more specific if you are gonna say something like that. not trying to be an a$$ just curious.
