Having A Blast Gutting A '96
I recently had a 1996 F-150 XL 4.9 Auto given to me. Buddy blew a head gasket and didn't want to sink any more money into the thing. All he wants are the tires. The body is shot.
I've only had it for a week but so far, on my '94, replaced the interior door trim on the drivers side, a clip behind the instrument cluster that the bezel screws in to, dash accents, 4 working heater vents, interior light door switches, left side tailgate support cable, thermostat housing and fan shroud. I'm adding map pockets on my doors, interior light w/ map lights and an under hood light,
There's still a boatload of parts left to pull off.
In the past year, the truck's had a new front gas tank, Power steering (pump, hoses and box), alternator bracket, water pump, thermostat housing (that I've already replaced) and rear shackles.
I'm learning alot about my truck just by tearing this junker apart.
Now I have to clean out the garage so I have a place to store all these parts.
