I've had this bad boy for a few years now, and in my attempts to fix all the damage the previous owners caused, I kept finding this place. He's a '94 Eddie Bauer with a 5.8 that sadly has seen better days. I call him 'Leviathan', sometimes anyway.

Here's to the adventures I have while trying to fix him up a bit. Cheers, y'all.

Welcome & the truck looks to be in decent shape compared to many others as far as rust, but it can all be fixed! What part of the country are you in?
Yeah the body is remarkably clean surprisingly. Just surface rust on the hood and roof from where the Walmart rattle can black peeled the factory paint off. (I got it like that, promise!) I'm in the Midwest, so the underside leaves much to be desired. Good ol' road salt. Truck's outta Kentucky tho.

Ah gotta love that road salt... NwPa here so I can totally relate. Road salt ate my 90 😥 also why I went to Texas to find a clean rig. RustAvert undercoating is my new best friend 👍

Nice looking rig. Looks like a great starting point. Don't even wanna get into my resto adventure 🙄

Oh that damn salt, mine was from Tennessee, & now its in Michigan, which gets a ton of salt on the roads, but its never gonna see rain, snow, or salty roads again on my watch. Its a summer toy only for me that stayes tucked in a garage with heat/air.

Like many of us, the goal is, its only gonna get nicer over time. Mine was a barely running hunk when I got it, now its mechanically pretty good, thanks to the wonderful folks here pointing me in the right direction along the way. Next I get to rust repair & eventually paint, but they are still fun to drive, rusty or not!! Enjoy!!

Yo ZombieGears,
Welcome!
ASAP, find out if speed control recall work, if equipped was completed @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number); or @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or ... have VIN ready. While there, see most Ford dealer maintenance/repairs done @ any dealership nation-wide.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
See this guide by jowens1126 to confirm recall status @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96.

Welcome to our community! Make sure you read up on how to calibrate the PSOM for those tires! Not only will it make you have a correct speedo, but the transmission will shift better and run cooler!

Thank you! I definitely will. I meant to forever ago and it just sort of went out the window when more wiring issues and such made themselves known. I appreciate the reminder 😄

Yeah, salts a necessary evil lmao. Mine's hopefully gonna be a daily, it's just currently in the "barely running hunk" category right now. Hopefully I can get a headstart on it before winter hits too bad now that I have the opportunity and the means to get it in better condition.
