    My truck.

    1990 Ford F250 3/4 ton, 2wd, 351 Windsor V8 EFI, 5 speed stick shift (granny and overdrive), 4.10 rear gears, long bed w/bedliner, regular cab (duh) vinyl interior, plain jane truck only option i think is split rear window (which i don't see how you could do without). Has 550 RAM air! (open 5 windows and go 50 mph- if you turn the triangle vent windows around they put in a nice blast of air). Just don't have any loose papers haha.
    Things i've added-
    CD player/stereo, speakers
    CB radio
    2 utility lights on bottom of rear bumper, wired into reverse lights for extra visibility backing up at night (works great) people no longer stand behind you when backing out of spot at wal mart at night LOL. also helps backing up trailer in dark.
    2" receiver hitch
    toolbox (cheap plastic one but hey it was free)
    chrome wheels & new all terrain mud and snow tires (yes the front tires are smaller than the backs, it looks more like a 4x4 that way)
    Dual exhaust (no catalytic converter, put on dual cherry bomb glasspacks and went out on each side with chrome 3" tips in front of tires) sounds really sweet, can make it talk to ya with the stick shift :D
    oh and the light covers.

    I think thats all i've put on it :jester: :p
    I got it summer '03 and it had been painted a year before.

    Who wants to guess the mileage on it? Interior is as good as exterior, bed is not beat up or rusted under the liner (liner was put in at time of painting, truck not used since)

    Hopefully you can see the "Infantry" sticker in the window by the mirror- it's in honor of my older brother who's in the National Guard and leaving for Bosnia in 2 weeks to spend a year there :(

    Truck looks good with the new wheels! I think if you paint the headlight covers it would look really clean ;)

    Thanks Scott (TLC9) what color are you thinking on the light covers? They’re hard enough to see with at night (that’s why they come off at night!) can’t imagine what they would be like with paint on them ;) Hmm… maybe paint a flame design on them? That’d be cool but I imagine I’d definitely get pulled over for that (not pulled over yet but am told I could be). LOL

    Rex, I haul my equipment on a 6’ x 12’ trailer that I tow behind the truck. Trailer has a ramp that lowers on a hinge and you drive the mower up into it.

    Thanks Expert.

    I neeeeeeddd mud flaps! Hmm next on the list maybe! :D
