I love the truck...keep it as you want it! But if I were you I would look at getting those trail/turn/backup lights and custom mold them into the bed or bumper. Thats the only thing I see that makes it a 9 and not a 10. Great looking truck. I worked for a guy who had one but older and painted johndeere green. Anyways what size motor and tran came in that year stock?

I have no idea what came in it stock or what trans it was. I believe it was a flathead though.

Oh man, i posted in another thread earlier today stating that I hated your guts. Now I know how much I meant every word of that.

She is a beauty. There is a blue one running around CT. It has Cobra r's on it and they look awesome. I will agree with other posters, them wheels got to go, they belong on a A-Team van, not on that beautiful thing.

Thanks. I love driving it! It came with those wheels when I bought it. I'm not too worried about wheels right now. I will have the "go" then I will start on the "show".
Bigger engine picture...in the background is the T-56 (the 6 speed manual everyone wants) I was going to put behind the engine. I'm trading it for a Turbo 400 tranny.

Maybe so, but it's going to be an EPIC WIN for me when I surprise all the Mustangs around here.
