    Hey - could always go 5 lug mesh wheels on the truck. Just for something different.

    the wheels on it remind me of a wheel Toyota produced. I could be wrong about that. (May explain the MIA caps?)

    And actually a 20" like the 2009-2010 Mountaineers and Explorers had available would look killer on that truck.

    Or even just the less popular chrome clad 18's.

    Or swap on some Lincoln logos and put on Blackwood or Aviator wheels? Would definitely make someone scratch their head.Name:  IMG_4933.jpg

    I always LOVED the one year only window chrome on my 08 Mountaineer!

    super happy for you on getting the new to you truck!

    I've been thinking about trading my MarkLT one of these days, but other than the Rousch F150's nothing even remotely tickles my fancy.....

    .
    The wheels are a factory Ford Ranger wheel. It took awhile to find them as I guess they were not the most common ones installed. The fact that this truck is a Canadian import might make a difference.

    I almost pulled the trigger on a Raptor, which I could have been approved for, but common sense said no. Was the same monthly payment, just a few more years added on. I didn’t want to pay that long. I’m happy with this little truck so far.

    Well, Brock that sucks about the being away from home and the having to buy a new ride. Hoping things start looking up for ya soon. The new Ranger looks nice though. So congrats on that. Know the car payment is a bummer ( just had to buy the wife a new DD this summer so know your pain ) but at least you have a reliable truck to drive. Keep your chin up my friend!

    It's been a while but for the second year in a row, I have made the local Fox calendar. I have some work to do, but it is an honor the car gets love....especially locally. Now I almost missed it and this is the final one out of 3, but had I of been able to get with the photographer sooner I would have had the same result, just with less project cars.

    Score one for the 8Q lovers! I got the cover photo and January!

    It's weird. This is the first winter, since I've had this car, that I have not blown it apart to pieces just to work on it. In fact, I haven't done anything to it at all.

    Yesterday I was looking at it in the garage and curiosity got to me, wondering if it would even start after sitting there untouched for the past 2 months. Hopped in, hit the key, and she fired off on the 3rd revolution. I would say that is all the EFI's doing and it looks to be a dang good purchase now! That led me to pull it out of the garage and let her run for awhile. I looked down the street and one of the dead ends looked like a good spot to take a photo, with its untouched snowpack. I crept down the street at a pace slower than a snail, to prevent any salt from getting on her, and took a few pictures. I sadly put her back in the garage afterwards, where she will probably sit for the remainder of the winter.

    Couldn't stand it, huh Brock? Lol, That much work and then you have to let it sit all winter would be tough, I got to admit.

    The car looks great though, good pictures

    You haven't missed any updates Jason, as there has literally been none to do with work on the car. I have not touched this thing at all since I've been traveling a ton. The new motor is still on the stand, torn down to the block.

    Hoping by March, that things will slow up a bit and I will only be traveling one week a month instead of the schedule I'm on currently. I'm hoping to have the new motor done by late spring, as I really need it and clutch work done before any more seriously long trips.

    Thanks Dave. Luckily I'm gone a lot, so I don't have to see it much and think about it. It will be nice when things slow down and I have time to get back after it.

    Yeah, she's not going anywhere. I spazzed out a bit at first, but I'm ready to rock and roll. I know I would kick myself later, especially since I only have one kid left at home. A couple more years and he will be out of the house also, leaving me there alone with mama. I will have to have my car as a form of meditation.

    I should be able to confidently drive down there this summer, once I put a radio in. I'm much closer to crazy than sane and I need outside voices in my head not the inside ones. I'll buy the first coke
