My 81 F100 SWB
A.K.A. Money Pit




Just a small change in altitude, and attitude... Went from 275/60R15's to 31x10.50's.




 
 
 

I bought this truck for $2100 USD, and, it is VERY similar to the 82

It doesn't have much optional equipment, but, it isn't bottom of the line either, The few options it has are power steering(didn't have factory power brakes,) the big mirrors, the woven vynl seat, The SROD 3spd O/D  and the 300, but, it didn't come from the factory with a radio. It has the full factory guage package(with tach) and, according to the build sheet, came with the 'Free Wheeling' package
For drowning out the rattles, it had an old tapedeck hooked to the stock dash speaker... I did find speakers in the door panels that haven't been used since they were covered.
On the to be added list: 33x12.50's. On the to be deleted list: You'll see it as it goes... Deleted so far: Steps and fog lights, 302 swapped for 300, SROD blown up and replaced with NP435. 2wd front end swapped for a TTB
