Ditched the aluminum wheels in favor of a set of factory F150 steel wheels. Some gloss black paint to cover the surface rust, and a new pair of muds up front.

I got pretty sick & tired of spilling my drink every time I turn, and the sh** a** Ford armrests built into the seats not staying in place, so I decided to by-pass the Ford engineering, and replace it with much higher quality designs...

Dodge parts






Now if only I were smart enough to figure out how to power up the USB port inside the armrest so I could charge my cell phone.

You can always put something like this in place of any cigarette lighter too

Been along time folks. I've just been so busy with work and life, haven't really had any free time. In the last year or so since I've logged on, I made some minor but important progress. Got 3 new power window motors in and working. Lift gate had a bad latch safety override switch I had to bypass to get working. Got all new window moldings and seals to keep cockpit dry. Replaced just about every gasket and seal on the motor so no more leaks. And the most important step of all - fixed the slippin transmission. Bought a Performance Automatic stage 1 valve body and deep sump cooling fin trans pan, adjusted the shift linkage on the tranny side while valve body was out. Drives like a dream now. Transmission is almost smooth enough to earn the ultimate compliment any tranny can get, that it shifts like a Turbo Hydromatic lol.
