lol this has been the first time I couldn't deal with something cheap. It was shipped back the next day. It did quite a bit of stuff but not as much as my current one and its not as clean looking as this either but its a good affordable alternative though.

Yah I'm looking to upgrade trucks at some point so unfortunately they value isn't worth it for me. Plus you are adding a supercharger I believe, which will also make it more useful.

Rain guards ftw! Why didn't you get those awesome and useful rain guards for the back windows that don't even go down? Wait...

Hater. You know they make those for the back window that are totally useful on a side-to-side rear slider. LULZGASM

What wire did you tap into for the glove box light?

Your '99 should already have a pre-wired and pre-installed glove box lamp. Ford stopped including them in late '03/early '04.

back on topic: window vents always a great idea..but only if they are the inside the window style like you got. not stick on the outside ones, those are fugly and fall off etc.

whats the significance of your license plate? Is it personalized? When are two letters vertical instead of horizontal, that isn't how they do them there is it?

Its just a specialty plate, not personalized. You normally pay more for them (this one has the us flag in the background) but when I went to re-register the truck, they had a surplus of these and it came out to be cheaper than a regular plate lol

You should probably just sell that bucket of bolts and build a rally car.

I should also maybe do taillights like this.

Picked up another 8.8 yesterday, thanks Grev!

Plans are to make it pretty, throw a LS in it, disc brakes, then put it on the truck.
Anybody want to trade me a 28 spline trac lok for that 31 spline torsen in the first pic? lol




Found good use of the rear swaybar. Perfect to carry this heavy sucker around like a suitcase lol

picked up an edge front bumper/valence thats the same color as my truck today.
the valence is pretty beat up and will need paint and fog lights but I wont be using that until winter so I have time to fix it up. They came off of a 2003 and since the bumper is 01-05, I put my 2004 valence on it.

It was a nightmare getting the red valence off of the red bumper. the rust was pretty bad on the inside of it and 5/8 of the bolts snapped with a dinky 1/4" ratchet!
Had to head down to the hardware store and pick up new u-nuts and bolts. Threw some antisize on the bolts before putting them on so i'll never have an issue if i want to take the valence off again.

truck looks WAY better now. My chrome bumper has a small ding on one side so I'll use that in the winter since i don't care about it. it can eat all the salt off the roads lol.







HATE RUST

Im going to end up buying a new aftermarket bumper thats ready to be painted and spray it. till then, I'll continue to back in when i park it anywhere lol. CHROME MUST DIE!! Figures i've been rear ended twice but on both occurrences, the cars that hit me ended up with a busted radiator from my hitch and the bumper was unharmed -__-

i just noticed i forgot to put my front skid back on
