Default Need some info

Haven't been on here in awhile, started a new job and i am having to do some repair work to my truck, new battery and 80a alternator, and next weekend i am welding a new rear passenger quarter panel to my bed after my mom backed into my truck there are a few things id like your guys advice on, first id like to lift my truck just a bit or level it out at least, would it be a two inch lift to the front to level it? btw i have a 92 with the 302, second, i would like to put some gauges in the pillar, i think it looks way cool and i would like to have an rpm gauge, but just one gauge on the pillar looks silly, what are some others i can put in it? id like to put three and how hard is it to hook up the gauges correctly? ive got a hundred other mods id like to do to it to finish making it my dream truck but im going to start with those since i have a paint job to save up for right now too lol any advice you guys have is greatly apreciaed and thanks in advance!

Personally, I'd put a trans temp gauge, and an Air/ Fuel gauge or maybe even a vacuum gauge. The trans temp is a must for a truck IMO.

There would be basic electrical for the gauges, hot and ground. Then signal wire. The A/F will tap into the signal wire for the O2 Sensor. The Trans temp gauge will require a sender either brazed into the trans pan. Or you could put an inline filter assembly that has a sender housing built in into the trans cooler lines. Booba may have a link to this as he has done the secondary filter mod. Not sure if he did the temp sender in it though.

2 inches is pretty close to leveling the front, but it gets pretty costly to do it correctly. You'll need new coils, adjustable camber bushings, and an alignment(s). You WILL need the alignment RIGHT away. As in the first time you drive the truck with the lift is to drive it to the alignment shop...if it's more than about 10-15 miles, you tow it there.

As far as gauges, I'd make your stock oil pressure gauge functional (right now it is a idiot light in a gauge's costume), add a trans temp gauge, vacuum gauge, and maybe a volt meter. I dunno, I always wanted just the 2 gauges, 3 seemed a bit much to me. Maybe a clock? It'd have to be a relatively classy looking clock if I were gonna use it though.

You already have a 3G alternator, so you are ahead of the game in that category, but why not upgrade to a 160 AMP? Typically they are cheaper or the same price.


Now onto making it your dream truck, where are you wanting to go with it? We all know quite a bit about these trucks, so combined we'll be able to come up with something for ya, lol.

Blurford, I too am trying to build my dream truck. I have some parts collected and ideas on paper. I have also done some looking around for how to and parts info. I've read alot but its still going to be a learning experience. Some of these guys, Booba , BigBlue79, glc123, have been through thick and thin with me and my truck. Look forward to seeing your progress!

Hey blueford, if you just want to level more than raise, LMC has drop shackles that will lower back end and make truck level. Just my two cents.

1993 F150 XLT, 5.8 with E40D, Tow and Handling Package. Fully loaded from factory as truck was special order. Mods: Extang Snap on bed cover. 2" drop in rear, Six Liter Tuneup, NOS 66-72 Ford Air Foil Antenna, Planet Auto Red Ford Oval (grille). Diamond Clear Headlight Package, Bumper Guards, F350 Brake Conversion, Slotted/Drilled Front Rotors, 3 row alum radiator with Mk VIII elec fan. and much more to come!

Thank you Biker trash, these admins here are absolutely amazing its the only forum i go to, i have started to lean towards a rally type look with my truck, almost like a raptor, i was looking at some 2 in lifts for the front that where just spacers for the coil springs but looking at boobas comment i need to do a little more research and really look to find the right kit, and i still need to measure the truck i think the rear was dropped to inches by the previous owner, i have also been looking at those duraflex front fender flares with a 4.5 in buldge, not quite sure what i think of them yet though im getting excited for the exterior to come together a bit, i finally got my new quarter panel on and primered that was a big step ill be making a post on it here soon, and thank you guys for your support!! feel free to post pics of your own trucks on here i love to see what everyone has done for there trucks
