Default pickups

I just wanna see some pictures of y'alls trucks. Stock or not. Seems like there's just not that much out there on the web.

Got mine a couple months ago, runs great, just has quite a bit of rust. Don't matter, won't even be able to see it with a little mud on it, haha. It's a 1980 custom deluxe on an 81 K10 frame. Also a '74 350 4brrl. 5" lift. pretty much it. Put a pioneer system in it.

1999 Ranger XLT standard cab, I love it, great little truck. 2.5L inline four, 5-spd manual, only mods are some fog lamps and a JVC head unit with a Pioneer 6X9 in each door and two in the mounts behind the seats. Also wired up my own parallel circuits and resistors and did custom green LED floor lighting, actually because I use the truck for work at night and it helps see the paperwork without whippin out a flash light every ten minutes. Very clean, considering only paid 2200 for it! Ive fixed little cosmetic things, like new bed liner, painted bed coating on the bedrails, re-painted the center caps on the onlyset of Alcoa rims Ive ever seen like them.



And my apologies for the large pics, couldnt get the uploader to work kept giving me a 500 internal server error

Actually it is a perfect truck and it is paid off. I jokingly refer to it as a pile but it is a super truck.

I would love to take that thing out in the snow! You ever go offroading or is it a daily driver? Or both? Go out to Aguanga and find a nice dirt road.

His wont be off-road capable until he takes the bow tie off and puts this special little blue oval on it.... Jk Dale nice truck, but too nice. If I had something that big it would spend as much time in the mud as on the pavement. I am however, thinking about a 05 or new F150 crew cab 4X4 for a daily driver and letting the Ranger be the little worker that its been anyways

Thanks for the compliments guys. Truck is my toy hauler mostly. Has a modded 454 Vortec with custom ECM. Most guys know you don't get a super long wheelbase IFS truck for real offroading...

Dale smart move in not making it a mudder or anything, but would it still be considered the trailer queen if its HAULING the trailer? lol. We have this great place about an hour East of here called Yankee Lake and they do Yankee Lake Truck Night (vids on youtube), HUGE mud field and playground so Im thinking about taking an 80's F250 with a 351Cleveland and building it up for dirty fun.

i dont have a truck... yet. i might be able to convince my grandpa to get me 95 (or similar) f150 powerstroke with a plow to plow the driveway in the winter, that way the truck would pay for itself in a couple years (and no more chevy plowin' our driveway and ruining it because the driver is incompetent when plowing gravel driveways). anyways, the truck should wait until i have one of them drivers licences first

Those old Ford trucks will never die. Looks like a 78-79. Also looks pretty solid for a Michigan truck.
