What... no carpeting? Here's something you can use to dress up your sow's ear. Hey, all "classic" restorations cost money.

well ray, thanks for trying to be helpful, in your own backhanded way...., the sins of the father, right"

I have explored weathertech floor liners, but the laser measured good stuff is not available for a 1985 crewcab......

....and the link to the floor mats that you posted are just...., well, floormats, so I ll likely pass....

but thanks to everyone who has been nice...., or funny in this thread.

I am a simple man with simple pleasures and a complicated mind.

i have not much hope for us.

god would have been better off raising hogs, i think.....

if we can manage to kill enough of each other and not destroy all life in the process, perhaps we will do better next time.

probably not tho.

anyway, we should put some bonobos and chimps and gorillas in the amazon and hope that they survive the inevitable apocalypse .....

maybe the gorillas will survive in the congo basin either way.

we can only hope.

so right now my ford seems like a good thing...., a simple thing.

of course one good EMP pulse and we are all screwed.....

except for the hillbillies and the savages......

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

I finally found an image of an 86 truck exactly like mine, except for the paint.

it is rare.

there a re 4x4 s and duallies out there, but a straight 1985 f350 crew cab is a rarity.

mine has had all the grill work bumpers and hood removed blacked out and rei nstalled by me. the rest has a crappy grey primer job that someone else did.

maybe, but I ve driven dual I beam trucks for about 20 yrs and had zero problems with it.

what makes me happy is that the cab supports in front are rust free!!!!!

I have fabricated new cab supports for both of my 75 s......

....no fun, but necessary on most old fords.

That's not "ford tough."

This is "Ford Tough."

Talk about tough... it even fixes its own front end damage.

And it has the quick-changing steering wheel, too! (dark colored, possibly black, at the 4:18 mark, and a completely different style wheel, in blue and with a horn ring, at 7:04)
