Great looking truck and a solid build plan. Can't go wrong with a Gen 1 in my opinion... especially an SE (but I might be biased)
Thank you man.
Saw your build website... How do you like the roush supercharger?
Maybe because he doesn't like the V6 sound as well as it being a massive flush of cash? "fully built out gen 1s just ripping it up and sounding amazing."
You can do all the same suspension stuff to a Gen 2, but it will never sound amazing- unless you put a V8 in it too.
You guys see the MACH E 1400 nonsense with Gitton Jr and Ken Block that came out a few days ago? After 5 minutes of the electric motor squealing sound, the twin turbo V8 Mustang sounded ab-so-lutley fucking glorious.
The wonderful sounds begin at 12:00 into the vid.
Finally got bumper installed
That building is gay as hell though. This is the proper way to paint a building.
nice. we will devirginize your new skid in the sand dunes next saurday
Love it. I bought it with the supercharger already on there so I don't know the difference between stock vs. supercharged, but it will pull in 6th gear going up a mountain pass at 65 mph. The only down side is the intercooler blocks all the airflow to the tranny cooler, so I have to back off after awhile of aggressive on/off road driving to let the tranny temp go down. I'm currently trying to figure out how to solve for that.
Finally got around to making the video of the parts installed;
