Lets see some full size pictures...

Just picked up this project! Bought it unseen in Seattle for $900 then drove it 1000 miles home. It is now the base for my adventure rig. Plans include: Mexican blanket seat cover (done), Bed Rack, RTT, Cleaning up the engine bay, better lights, rear locker, slight raise and new rim/tire combo. The bench seat is the winning feature though. If anyone has some cool build ideas/additions let me know! this is a blank canvas for now and i don't mind experimenting. May do boat speakers on the bed rack for camping music.

You got some good bones there! You should consider doing a build thread if you haven’t already started one. I see it’s a F-250 with a hand-shaker trans....any more details you can share?

I drive this '18 Ford F-150 FX4 4x4, 5.0L V8 shorty. It is levelled with 34" BFG KO2'S and has a front Torsen locker and the factory E-locker in the rear. I picked it over the popular rigs because of its big capabilities and small size. It has the same towing capacity as, and more payload then a Power Wagon. It's wheelbase is only 4" longer then a Jeep JLU so it has an awesome break over angle. It has a better power to weight ratio then most Raptors. It has the 240 amp alternator with the dedicated 80 amp power system that I plan to hook a winch up to some day. I'm looking forward to putting a camper system and an Propane fuel system on it this year to increase my range.

Much appreciated! I think I just might start a build thread as I’m sure I’ll need some knowledge from others at some point. But I will keep you posted on that! As for the specs it’s a 1980 Ford F-250 with the famous 4.9 liter 6 cylinder engine with a 4 speed transmission and 4wd. It is the slowest thing on the road but somehow you can’t drive it without a smile! Looking forward to what this project that’s for sure

I had the Mexican blanket type covers on my '86 F-250.
Picked up a new to me 2011 F350 Lariat 6.7 powerstroke 4wd with locking rear diff.

I may be slow but I'm ahead of you.

I’ve had this for about a year doing little things to it as they come up. I’d like to eventually do a 6.0, 4l80 and an Atlas transfercase but for now it’s great for my weekend adventures. Currently running a small lift with a locked rear and an ARB in the front with 33” tires, no issue getting where I need to go so far. I love the vintage vibe but would like to get out of the state with it at some point.504663504664504665

2000 Ford Expedition. Kids called it Totoro after the anime character. Mainly because it kept them protected and it roared loudly!! lol We used it for exploring trails and hunting roads up here in Ontario. Unfortunately i lent it to a family friend and it was involved in an accident and was written off. So now i am searching for our next adventure vehicle.
