thanks for the welcome...

Yeah those are the Vista Apartments... if you ever see my truck, just honk... there are not too many trucks that look like mine in the area...

how does this Night Shade stuff work for tail lights... I would love to get mine done...

I am also working on a Turbo Ranger Project, I am just finishing up my motor, and waiting on my father to give me the 1990 Ranger that is sitting in the yard...

Nope, don't go to OSU, I am working on that though, I am going through Columbus State whenever I get back to going to school...

Yep that is the Vistas, I actually work at the Airport in their Engineering Department...

thanks for the welcome...

I know what you mean about a drop and some rims for the truck, I am thinking about a 3/4 drop instead, big sway bars, some stiff shocks, and some good tires should make for a nice handling truck...

if you are interested in a 3/4 Belltech sells a kit, comes with coils and leafs


you can look at summit and stylinconcepts for prices, and since they are in ohio, they ship very fast, oh, and they will price match as well

how many coats of Niteshade did you put on your truck though??? I have read that the more coats you put on, the darker that the tail lights get...

by the way, how did you do your front Ford emblem on your truck??? I must say that it is a nice touch...

Howdy! Welcome to the site. I have always wanted a STX to Lower a few inches and throw some rims on. I want one high and one low, but I never see that happening.

Scott, the Vistas are over on the North side of Gahanna off of Hamilton Rd. by Stoneridge, almost at Hamilton and Morse, and just east of Easton. He's really close to both of us.
