Found out my timing was 20 degrees retarded, so I fixed that and now she runs 100% better and it can actually get out of its own way, haha.

I also put a police style push bumper on it, had a buddy of min weld 1/4" steel plates to the frame.

Thanks fellas! As for right now not much is going to happen to it. I am away at college so I don't have space to do anything. I do drive it 3 hours home every other weekend. Next on my list is a motor swap.

Little update. I went ahead and did a bucket seat swap, but to my surprise it wasn't as easy as everyone says it is. I got seats out of a 91' Escort, I grabbed brackets out of a 90' reg. cab Ranger that had a 60/40 bench seat. I ran into a problem with the the 60/40 brackets making the seat sit way to high, to the point where I could not even get into the truck. Then, the Escort seat is wider than the mounting holes on my floor board. So I ended up taking the left side rail off my bench seat, then using the 60/40 inner rail and cutting off the front mounting tab and making my own. Then I got square tubing, ran it across the underside of the seat, so now the square tubing can mount onto the rails in whatever position I want them to.






And finally, I had to raise the rear outer rail up to be level with the inner one, otherwise the seat was cockeyed.

Did my cab mounts this week. I ended up putting polyurethane bushings in instead, and the difference is very noticeable. No more rattling, no more odd noises, etc.



I also had to replace my rear left cab bracket as there was nothing left of it.


Body lift? nah, I am good, don't like how it look with it.

I am going to go with either 33's or 35's, but right now I need to save up money for the tires + gears and maybe even lockers.
