    the engine isint original

    The engine isint original, it orignaally had a 305 but it was replaced with a crate engine a few years back. It only has 57.000 on the truck. no bondo no replacement panels. i belive it was listed on ebay but i bought it outwight from an older man. He said it had allways been his baby and he hates 2 see it go but him and his wife are moing into a retirement home and only 1 vehicle allowed. He never used that sander on the truck yet, because it has nor 3' reciver on the back and he didnt use the plow 1 time this year. I am very happy with it.

    f-150 face off

    today i was at the gas station with this truck filling up an 86 f-150 was filling up across from me and we were talking smack and he goes "yea i probally eat one of those up a week'" so after he pulled out i did about 30 seconds later and i got on the highway and he was doing about 65 in the rightlane so just to tease him i went bay at a bout 70-75 and he layed in it. I saw that coming and let him come up to me matching my speed to his. at about 88-90 i head his trucks rev limiter kick in and thats when i left him in the dust. I saw him later that day and i grinned at him and he grinned back and put his arms in the air.....cant wait 2 see him at mobil again

    :jester: 90mph and his rev limiter kicked in.

    Mine doesn't kick in until 120mph stock. Man talk about a rush:D . Don't tell anyone I did that though;)

    should i get a different plow? i think the frame in the front takes away from its sex appeal. can that truck take a 8 footer?

    Keep it the way it is--Go out and make some money first!!! I like the red plow on it! Had a 79 1/2 ton with a stock 400-- was nike but a little tame!
