Snagged this picture a couple days ago while looking for injectors for my 07 f150.

There isnt much left.

That instrument cluster bezel is worth its weight in gold... The rest needs put out of its misery!

If I get back up there I'll grab it. I hate that I didnt think about it but I already have a couple spares. I also wished I had grabbed the upper brake light from the top.

Saw this masterpiece of bondo today. That and welding. Bondo’d fender flares, bondo’d radio, bondo’d rear window. Welded on brush guard, welded leaf springs. And a shotgun barrel shifter.

Sure is. lol. My guess is it was a very cheap way to lift it. If you jacked the truck up by the frame, the suspension will droop. Looks like they drooped the rear to let the leaf springs expand and flex and then they took a piece of metal and welded it to the leaves so they couldn't compress back to their neutral position.

even a cheap hockey puck body lift would be safer than that... what the **** is wrong with some people

Maybe all they had was Bondo and a welder. That whole "When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail" deal goin' on.

Not saying this is the case, but some ag equipment (think SxS) can be fitted with a rear suspension lockout for pulling plows etc. Puts every bit of traction possible to the ground.

For anything on the street, yowza! Thats dangerous

Pick n pull running a 40% off sale this weekend for toolkit members.

Btw someone in WA needs to check this one out... Is that a D50 conversion? Visor, rear slider windows, bronco emblems. Wish it was in my junkyards

@Burntoutaccountant it looks to be in the seattle area.

it definitely looks like a D50 TTB, with extended shackles o_O

Seriously though, someone needs to go get those rear sliding windows!!!!

I just looked closer, it might be a D44HD. Lools to have d44 sized lockouts. Hard to tell from one fuzzy pic though
