So with my dad passing, I inherited his old 1993 F150. v6 rear wheel drive. It's not a bad truck but it needs some TLC to get it to be pretty decent.
I'm not familiar with trucks but having driven it for about 6 months now I can say confidently that it gets about 88 miles to the tank.... Which seems absolutely atrocious compared to my 2013 GT. I dont know if that's truck normal or if there's a problem with the dang thing or if its a matter of a 20 year technology gap. I can tell you that the truck probably needs a complete tune up (new plugs, oil change and filter at least) wondering if you thing that might help gas mileage?
Truck has about 140k on it so I'm not exactly looking to do a complete restomod on it.
Also one this that is odd. Is upon going into drive and driving, it sounds like there is some sort of rushing water behind the dashboard of the passengers side. Any clues?
I was wondering if anyone knows any pretty active truck forums I can scrounge for the missing parts and get some advice.
Without further ado. Some pictures. It was dark so the pictures may suck.
Sagging Rear Bumper
Missing Drivers Side Door Light cover

List of **** to be addressed:

Upon initiating the e brake, the handle does trigger release.

IF any of you guys have information related to these problems or can help me track down some of the replacement pieces, please let me know.
I'd like to surprise my brother and get this thing looking good and functional again.
well.... I think you might have found all of the parts he needs haha. I'm sure he will be grateful when he reads this
