Hello LR, lifetime Ford junkie (restore old Mustangs & Broncos) and new L owner from Central FL. Bought the truck a few weeks ago from the original owner in Orange Park (just S of Jax). She is #4861 born on 6/8/2001 and is Silver.


Came with a few mods:
Flex A Lite E-fans
C & L upper
C & L 95mm MAF & Inlet pipe
SBTB
2# crank pulley
Walbro 255's
Borla catback
Belltech shackles


Dyno tune by Tuners Inc. (Tony G.) 392/477


First order of business will be an L&S oil sep, I/C cleaning and plug change... Down the line I hope to do some DIY long bars, home port the Eaton, VB, and maybe a couple more PSI.


Driveway is at a slight angle, truck is a hair lower in the front vs. the rear but I'm sure she will come down with time.
