Been lurking for a little while now, thought id take a few minutes and make a post. this forum has been great for information, happy i found it.

Ive been on forums for the better part 15-16yrs, I was involved in local mustang clubs but after having kiddos and selling my GT500 I lost the connection with that. Being a car nut, I had to have a "toy" but fitting the family in a Mustang wasnt cutting it for us. Ive always loved 5th Gen Bronco's so I went on a search for a year to find a clean truck, I had to extend my search to our southern friends in the USA and I ended up importing my 95 From Florida. Its not 100% perfect but much cleaner than I would find up here in Canada. It was completly stock and low mileage, exactly what i wanted. Over the first winter I replaced EVERYTHING suspension wise, new interior, re finished fatory Alcoa wheels/fresh K02's, full bassani exhaust from headers back. Havent done much to it over the last 4yrs other than general maintanace< its been an amazing summer daily.

when I got it home

Ive Had an f150 for a daily since 2013, over that time ive had 6 of them. My current is a 2019 Raptor, Just rolled 48ooo Kilometers (29k miles) Its an amazing Daily, just threw some fresh K02s on it, need to order new steering wheel, the 12 o clock red line is chewed up. It has developed the dreaded cam phaser issue, hopefully will go in over the next couple weeks to get sorted. after that ill probably throw some mods at it because I cant leave things alone! its a sickness!

thanks for the link, that is an improvement, my red stripe has ripped apart though. is not a faded colour issue. original owner must have had a lot of rings or something?
