    I cant remember exactly but its like 76,000 miles.I had to rebuild the engine cuz the RE-RE that owned it before me forgot to plug the front timing cover dipstick hole and i guess for a while it just spewed oil all over everything from the front bumper to the back.I got it rebuilt and all cleaned up, and for as long as there was oil on the frame there isnt any rust.The cab corners are solid and the frame since i cleaned it is now black with undercoating and i will POR-15 it probly this weekend.But like i said,there isnt any rust on it from where the oil leaked.She's a pretty strong runner.The rims that are on it I just bought 2 weeks ago for 150 bucks with tires.And the new rims im buyin for it next week are these.All the center caps and the rest of the trim on the truck will be black powder coat.

    I can snap a pic of the engine when i get home.Im still drivin my mustang right now,or at least till it gets a bit colder.The engine was just a basic rebuild that I did on my porch.I have a couple pics of the screw-ups from who ever the idiot was that put the lower intake on and a couple other things i had fixed.
    Dont really know about the fuel mileage yet.Have'nt drivin it that much,but i do have another edelbrock carb that I am rebuilding to see if I can get some more performance out of it.
    Dont really matter right now.Gas for me is 1.98 a gallon right now.Probly less since this morning.

    Nice truck. I love those older Fords. Welcome aboard. You'll make some coin this year pushing the white stuff. I think you'll be happy with that power too.

    P.S. Go BROWNS!!! LOL!!
