I had a '94 I6 F150 for awhile, got tired of the ttb up front and the overall size of it wasn't ideal for the trails. It was time for it to go. I just recently came across this find on craigslist and could not let the opportunity slip through my hands..

figured i should start taking off all the plastic pieces, went i bought it they were all pinched from the door, half falling off. i just used goo-off and a razor blade, took most of it off. i plan on using hercu-liner or raptor on where the tape used to be to cover it and as added protection.

cb install, just took a piece of flat steel from depot, drilled two holes in it and took the visors off, slid it under and tightened, i always thought it took up too much space on the passenger side

bought the mount from firestik, its great cause there was no drilling required and it seems pretty strong. just bought a 62" (?) whip and tied it off with a zip tie on the cargo rack. figured a thinner flexible one would be better for the trails and a buddy of mine said they acutally get better reception than the typical firestik

dont really recommend buying this, select increments xj pod. 8" subs dont cut it, so i cut it out to fit a 10" ..still a work in progress think i need more airflow and need to attach it stronger cause i think the plastic molding shakes with it and messes up the sound ?? its a great idea for space saving though

Down N Dirty Offroad (Reading, PA) find them on facebook, is an offroad shop, they do alot of really cool customizing for jeeps and other 4x4s. bought this rear tire carrier/bumper from them for cheap too (350$) and it bolts right on, just gotta deal with the license plate
