77, 38 boggers, I drove it for my first year of driving. It is in EXTREMELY rough shape and has seen its fair share of mud. And is now sitting near the woods at my parents house.

351 Windsor in it (that engine sucks btw)

The only thing I've done to it is put on a set of warn lockers.

It's black and in really rough shape. My dad bought it the same year I was born in 86. I have no clue why he got it because he has no desire to hunt or do anything outdoors.

He had a 68 chevelle up until about 5 years ago that was an absolute monster.

once I do a couple things to it I'll post a before and after. It was bought to be a hunting vehicle with occasional joy riding in the city. Still needs seatbelts and some other small shit

I think every part of this plan is great except the expectation of 25 MPG. That's nearly 4000 lbs, 35x12.5 inch tires, and probably some tall gears. Not to mention that if you get the Ecoboost you'll never keep your foot out of the throttle.

But it'll be worth it.
