No, I hate circle fogs. But I don't particularly like the way the square fog holes look either.

Not sure yet. I might just farm it off to someone else. My dad was an autobody tech, and worked at just about every body shop in town, so I know a lot of people that I can call for estimates. lol.

lol, yea pretty much. I spend some money on the Ranger, then spend some money on the F150. Over the last year I've spent more on the Ranger than the F150, but I'm trying to change that.

Thanks man!

I foresee big changes coming to this truck within the next few months. And no, not the 06+ bumper, or mirrors, or tails.......

I'm not in any hurry to finish the 06+ bumper. But that will come too. lol.

This weekend I almost got the truck stuck in nasty sugar sand, and now I'm over this 4x2 stuff. So yes, 4x4 parts are gonna start trickling in. So that means goodbye spindle lift, and hello body lift. Gonna stay with the stock IFS D35 because I can't justify a straight axle with the small amount of wheeling that I do.

This also means that I'll have to either find another 5-speed, or have my current 5-speed modified with a 4x4 output shaft. I'm going to run a BorgWarner 1354 manual transfer case, but I refuse to even bother trying to acquire a Level II extension housing with the output shaft speed sensor. So I will have to figure out how to make a bracket that will accept the shifter base and still keep the shifter in the stock location. I'll also have to figure out whether I want to keep the Explorer full-length console or go back to a shorty and have twin sticks in the stock location. I really don't want to cut into the side of my floor to fit an F150 shifter, so I may have to say goodbye to the full-length. Not really interested in the Level II shifter setup either. Gonna have to figure that out as well.
