1984, 300 L6, smogless, manual 3speed with overdrive.
Wait I thought all Ford trucks had sloppy steering gears?! Or is it just mine?!
Haha don't blame you! By the way, love the sig quote! Killer song and album!NOT taking that bet.
I just purchased the tan cargo liner for mine a few weeks ago. I really like it. I had just installed new carpet, so I was eager to get it as to not ugly up the carpet.New WeatherTech cargo area liner. I had to trim to fit around the interior spare, but careful eyeballing yielded very good results.
I also went after my wheels with metal polish. I only buffed by hand but wow, what a difference. I wish I had a picture of "before."

Are the center inserts something I can possibly find for my rear hubs?
Also polished front and rear bumpers with metal polish.
900 is still a little high. I think they're supposed to be 700-750, at least for the 5.8L. I'm not sure which engine you have.After several month of beating my head against a brick wall I finally made a huge mile stone. My idle has been hanging up at about 2500-3000 RPMs and for the past 2 years my heater hasn’t worked. Found the fix to both issues… I had two vacuum lines on wrong… now it idles at 900 rpm without any snags, and the heater blend doors work again.
Next up get my radios installed.
I know it’s a little high… it needs to be retimed… I set the timing high to have it idle without the IAC connected, because that was the only way it would run once warmed up.900 is still a little high. I think they're supposed to be 700-750, at least for the 5.8L. I'm not sure which engine you have.
When mine had its idle air control valve fail it started idling at 1500-1800 and throwing codes that put it into limp mode; super firm shifts, plus erratic idling even descending hills with no throttle. Replacing the IAC brought it down to around 800-900. Still got some codes, and replacing the MAP took idle down to 700ish.
But going from 2500-3000 to 900 must feel amazing. You're definitely back into the ballpark.
