    Jan 29, 2014-Picked up this 89 F150 for 2500. 302 efi auto transmission[​IMG]
    It snowed for 3 days straight in south Mississippi and everything froze over. Rode around in 4wd for 5 days straight. [​IMG]
    So this truck became my daily driver. I work on a towboat and my office is 4 hours from home. I drove this $2500 truck to and from Louisiana for work every other week. Also did a lot of farming with it[​IMG]
    Then came tires and wheels
    [​IMG]
    Then some paint
    [​IMG]
    Then more paint

    Traded tires and wheels!

    Back on stocks now

    So i retired this one to my weekend toy and got a new daily

    Love that year! Reminds me of my dad driving me around his work. Ah memories!

    So what are your plans for the "tank"?

    I haven't really made up my mind yet. I'm leanin towards runnin 44s so I'd probably have to go 10 to 12 inches. My uncle has a truck he runs 44s on so imma get with him and see what I need to do [​IMG]
