  • Never understood "race trucks". Cars are for going fast, trucks are for doing work. What's the point??

  • They did all that hard work and left the easy job undone. That worn out interior is begging to be redone. You could but bucket seats and a center console in for cheap. New carpet and try a little bit of creative door panels. That's too nice of a looking truck to have a ratty interior.

  • I have one of these trucks and those brakes aren’t good enouoh for stock power 😂. With that setup I’d get a badass set of brembos before I put an exhaust on that thing. Great truck but mine isn’t made for over a hundred mph.

  • That exhaust looks like ass to me. Cut it back and put turn downs I would rather not see it.

  • Why are you concerned about saving the old brake fluid in the system? Why wouldn’t you flush it?

    Mark SMark S8 days ago
  • I know that clean trans fluid is a good thing so when you take your finger and lube the oring with the dirty housing fluid that was bad . I also don't know why you didn't clean the area before you take out the speed sensor? Just curious.

  • I would love to buy 4 door 2500 and have it done with a lift kit same overhaul and upgraded interior. How much?

  • Those valve covers you bought are FUGLY and I would have done Chevy Orange on the engine. Other than those two minor things, if I had unlimited funds, this is exactly how I would do MY 93 F-150 short bed regular cab. Unfortunately I'm poor so I'm keeping the 300 I6 and 5 speed manual. Oh and I would have kept both bumpers chrome.

  • I watched ALL this by accident and the Interior is still dusty, but that takes 1 day to gut the Interior and clean/replace it.... it's not like it's a full cab with 4 seats! I would put a budget Audio System (with a Subwoofer) or breathed new life into that dusty After Market Radio.

  • kind of glossed over the paint job... there's some nice blue on blue stripes on tail gate and hood that seemed to just magically appear between the time they started spraying on color and had the truck on the road. And the dash and seats....kinda are begging for some upgrade. And then you need one of those barefoot footprint accelerator pedals in blue chrome...

  • in my experience, the spider gears do not need to be removed to get those c clips out. they're magnetic and with someone pushing on the axle shaft from the wheel stud side. you should be able to stick ur magnetic retriever in there to grab the c clip with some finagling
