No more SD

Went and traded the SD for a 150 the other day. Long story short the SD was too much for just me and my dog as my wife and I have seperated.

It's a 97 xlt 4.6 auto. It has a couple issues but nothing major. For now I will leave it as is maybe just remove some of the Chrome (I'm not a fan) and repare some of the body rust. Future plans are for a body lift and some more aggresive tires but not too soon.



Only one pic for now untill I get a new camera.

1997 F-150 xl
1984 Honda XR200R (the toy)
2007 Honda CRF100f (the spare toy)
2005 Jayco Baja 10Y (the home away from home)

Nice truck. I agree some of the chrome has to go though. I'm thinking ditch the window visors and chrome deflector and it'll be good.

thanks everyone. Thats what I plan on doing as well as the running boards, they are just a pain in the butt as far as I'm concerned.

Blair it's only been a week but it's been coming for a while now, thanks for the flashback.

It has 350000km on it but the motor was replaced 170000km ago and the tranny not long after. The more I drive it the more I realize how much I liked the 02 I had.
