That's a good bit of progress...you're working fast!
I'm trying - your comment makes me feel like I've done something when I feel like I haven't. I'll be happy to be driving it this summer.That's a good bit of progress...you're working fast!
Somehow my brother got a motor from a lightning and was planning on putting it in his notch. That's when I learned of them. (He scrapped the idea, sold the motor, put twin turbos on existing crate motor that was in it - then last year it received a coyote - it's mean)when I saw a Red 99 or 00 on the used car lot I fell in love with the Gen 2. think it was 01 and didn't even now they were out.
Thank you! - I think the bumper reinforcement and bumper cover are going to be the hardest fixes. I'm not buying a new bumper cover. The reinforcement I believe is specific to the L. So that's a pain. Maybe heat it up and try to hammer it out as close as possible. Not sure yet - not like I have a lot of options.You're working fast!
looking good. Hope you have no trouble finding the rest of what you need
It would probably be too expensive to ship but I will be pulling my slider soon to swap a solid rear window
No more of a death trap than the one-off Ranger Ford built with a Lightning motor. It was even a possible consideration for production, but I think it was just too high tempered for the average joe. Just look at the staggered wheel/tire set up this rig has.Definitely something I considered. I could see myself dumping a lot of cash on that project. Different subject for sure - would have been a death trap haha.
Sweet Jesus - meat wagon material right there. I'd drive it!No more of a death trap than the one-off Ranger Ford built with a Lightning motor.

Slight update - and reminder - I had keys made at the Ford Dealer.
Frame guy wants to drive the truck now that it's finished to make sure it doesn't track.
Question is, is it possible the keys aren't fully programmed or do you think since the Dealer did it, they should work irregardless?
Is there any telltale signs of when the keys don't work? I've turned on the truck when I first got the keys made, but since the tank was smashed, I didn't make an attempt to start it.
If I don't get to drive this thing before winter, I'm going to blow a gasket.
I have not tried both keys even though they look identical.Does the red THEFT light flash quickly when trying to start? Is so, this if I recall is a sign of a key not programmed. Did you try BOTH keys?
