This truck had been bought brand new in 2003 from Crossroads Ford in Raleigh N.C. by my father in law’s father. When he got sick and couldn’t drive anymore, I got it from my father in law and I had some major work to do. It had sat under a tree for a while so it was very nasty (inside and out). I had to have it cleaned, paint corrected, and waxed regularly but it cleaned up looking brand new (80xxx ORIGINAL MILES).
Then I had to have the wiring harness from front to back replaced because rats had chewed it.
But I couldn’t stop there. I had to dig deeper so then it turned into lifting it, cams, exhaust, tune, wheels, etc.
