Default #22 Here we go again!

Towed this one home last night but she needs some work. The motor is locked up and the bed is bad. The whole front of the bed floor is rusted and the tailgate. On the bright side the truck has 4wd, 4 doors and pretty nice interior...On to the pics...

Wekend update...
I got the motor unhooked yesterday and pulled it this morning. After converting my spare 01 motor to a 99 motor I dropped it in and ended up getting it running...Here's a few pics...



The motor I pulled out was a ford factory replacement motor, here's the tag

that's funny that the motor that wasn't working, was a replacement.. and you should probably update your signature...

The bed is actually repairable. I have 2 beds off of wrecked trucks I could cut the parts off of... I'm not going to rig this truck up though. With all power options and 4 doors this truck can be nice...and I have some tricks up my sleeve...lol Stay tuned in.... Here's the bed I'm going to use, it has some dents but no rust...
