All i told him is I want it too sound like it looks and run the pipes to the back that will look good and last. He did just that.

Im pretty positive the front bumpers are the same as an F150, however I am not 100% sure. Let me know if you need anything, I am here to help. Keep me updated on it.


Got some pics this weekend wile working on exhaust there on my profile. when it is all done i want to paint her all tan like the Humvee i had in the army with a nice set of studied tires and black powder coated rims. maybe put a bull bar on with some spot lights. at lest that what i would like to do.

Sorry I havent really updated, I have been doing some maintenance on my truck.

First thing, the water pump decided to go out, it was leaking for a while i found out, but i park and the grass so I never noticed the water dripping, and it seemed the pulley thing that goes over the water pump was holding all the water. The water pumped locked up and threw the belt off, causing me to lose all power. I got the new water pump installed, then my truck wouldnt start. Turns out I had a bad wire running from the positive terminal to the starter solenoid. I replaced that, It was good to go!!! For about two weeks...

I dont really know what happened. I was driving and Every time i took off, I head metal coming into contact, like a grinding noise and I noticed my front driver tire was shaking. Apparently the hub assembly came apart. The lugs separated and came off and were just spinning on there own, the only thing keeping the tire on was the keeper pin thing. My guess was the brake caliper locked up, and the tire kept moving, eventually breaking the lugs off of the hub. 370 bucks later, Im back on the road!

The youtube video will explain better what happened. Sorry I dont know how to embed it into the post.

Then this is the reason I bought my truck, my Grandpa had one just like it and I loved it when I was a kid.

I now have a new oil filter and synthetic oil. I then decided it was time for a sound upgrade since the stock speakers were shot. I bought 4 6x8 Kicker Speakers and a JVC Double din head unit that I installed.

I then got tow mirrors as well as chrome stainless steel nerf bars, i was tired about people complaining about getting into the back seat of the truck. The mirror was really simple to install. However, the steps were a major pain in the ***** to install. They said they would fit, however the mounting brackets were mislabeled, the left turned out to be right, and vise versa. I also couldnt use the bracket on the back driver side, so I just made it work...many busted knuckles and 5 hours later i finally got the steps on.
