Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

well the kit would be faster and easy not hunting for the perfect kit but did you have to go full prerunner or can you just do a lift kit in the front

Yea, I told everyone all the Chrome is going to go. I just dont like how it looks. Everything is going to be either Satin Black, or Gloss.

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

looks nice for sure but seeing the rust on the bed makes me think you should look at the cab really good

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

I did check out a few spots. Its got hints, here and there on cab, but most of the eat through is on the rear fenders. I'm going to hit it with some rust proofing later. funds all gone.

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

looks like a good base. .like the black out idea.chasing rust ,,, i hate it .if ford only told us that pulling the tail lights once o month and pressure washing in there would solve that rust problem.no **** my buddys grand dad. has been doing this faithfully for twenty years and he has one of the nicest rust free 80s f150 i have seen.and its was the sales man at the dealer ship that had told him that. i hear about ever time i see him he points to my rust and tells me the story .heard it about 500 times now lol.

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

Well, I'm bringing this beast back. I've decided to purchase it from my Grandpa again, and so back to the "Pre-Runner" Project. Pretty much were I left it with the last post. So, I will update when I get it home. Don't know how soon I will be able to do that but oh well.

No pictures yet, but I sprayed the cancer on the cab. I'm looking to get a card for my camera soon.

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

Well, sorry the delay on the pictures. Anyways today I was driving it home, and I heard a clunk, I check underneath and found that one of the axle shafts broke. I'm not 100% sure where, but I know its busted. Anyways I've been on craigslist looking for parts for this thing, and I thought it was funny when I saw the front end of another 1992 F150 on there, but I guess the guy knew mine was going to bust. So, I'm going to call the guy today, and haggle a bit with him see if I could get it for a decent price.

The best mod out there, the door handles kept breaking, So my grandpa put in this beast. I added the open-end closed-end wrench.

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

You knooooow... while the front-end is out, it's the perfect time to swap in a solid axle... just sayin... LOL

Hopefully it's not a tough fix. Is it the D44 TTB?

Re: 1992 F150 Pre-Runner Project

I'm not sure, haven't looked to far into the truck. Just been playing around with it. I'll take more pictures tomorrow.

Yea, I'm just going to keep with the current set up right now. SAS in the possible future.
