  1. If you decide to go with the LED make sure you check the backspace ( headlight bucket) The LED lights are deeper than stock.
  2. Don’t know if anyone noticed but after a couple of years of looking I finally found some vintage rock guards for my lights! I’ve wanted these since my first 720 back in 81
  3. I can’t recall if I got them on eBay or Amazon, but I think it was Amazon. look for “big rig” lights like kenworth or Peterbuilt. They do sell them in sets of four. They are a lot brighter!
  4. I had a similar problem, turned out to be the window felt in the track that the glass slides up and down in. my felt had rotted and started bunching up in the track causing the glass to jump or bind. When rolling down the window it would stop, I could roll it up a little then it would roll down but it still was harder than it should have been. I bought a$5.00 roll of adhesive backed felt, scraped out the old felt and pressed in the new. It’s been working fine for the last two years.
  5. I know, the mistakes I’ve made in the heat of the moment!
  6. Shaving down the lowers would have been my next step, but I had a coworker offer to swap the Titans for my stock ST alloys. I like the way they fill the fender wells.
  7. I ran 16” Chevy Z71 at first, without grinding on the lower arms the lower arms would scrape the inside of the wheels. I switched to the 18s really quick.
  8. Thanks Datzenmike, I’ll give it a shot. Hey NC85ST, that is my old Harley air cleaner, if you turn the picture sideways it may look more familiar. I fabricated a mount from a piece of exhaust tubing and stuck it over the carb. I’ll put some pictures up. My homemade ram air does work! She’ll do over 100 mph. any time I ask her to! Oh, I do get lots of thumbs up for the look.
  9. I’ve got a question regarding headlights, I’ve changed my lights to LED . All four lights are the same, when low beam is on the outer lights work, when high beams are on the inner lights work. Does anyone know how I can get all four lights to work at once?
  10. Don’t worry about the hijack Charlie, anytime we can share information I’m cool with it. My 85 came with most of the items you mentioned, except no cruise, moon roof or power locks & windows. It had a sliding back glass ( broke latch ) replaced it with a solid heated one. It had the alloy ST wheels but they didn’t work so well with the dropped spindles.
  11. Does anyone know where to get replacement rubber seals for the rear vent glass on a 720 king cab? I’ve looked online with no luck. The ones at the junkyard are always trashed. Any help is appreciated!
  12. Just finished building my shop, now I gotta move all the crap in!
  13. Hey Lance, is this for a king cab or a standard cab? I had a set of buckets from a Mazda 323 that fit the factory bolt holes. This was in a 81 standard cab, so there was no reclining at all. High back bucket would rest on back glass. Could you post a picture of your door opener mods?
  14. Just had this done via eBay , I sent a photo of my truck, they did the art work. It cost about $10 bucks. Once I approve the art work, they put it on a tee shirt for $13 bucks. Always wanted a tee with my truck on it!
  15. Got these at 4 wheel auto parts. If you can’t get the MA750’s
  16. I’ll crawl under the truck tomorrow and get the numbers of the existing shocks.
  17. I found these after I put the adapters on , I haven’t got around to installing yet. These fit the lower shock mount, for the upper eye mount you’ll need to hog-out the metal sleeve inside of the rubber bushings,
  18. Hey Lance, I picked up some adapters at 4wheel parts, it will give you a few more options for air shocks. add an onboard air compressor ($200 @ Amazon) makes life easy!
  19. Not at all, the shifter has a extension so it’s tall enough not to interfere with shifts, the picture was taken with the exhaust tip turned sideways so you can see it’s duel holders.
