F150 Go-Fast Help.

I'm looking for info on shocks/ladder bars to use on an 85 f150 that will be used as a weekend cruiser and may see tnt ever so often. Any recommendations would be great.

Also open to recommendations for a light weight(ish) wheel.

As far as cruising wheels go, the 20" dodge steel spares look sweet on them. I have a set for mine that have been collecting dust for a long time haha

Coolness. I thought there was an issue with the hubs being different from the dodge to ford or something like that.

Check out Cal-Tracs, their stuff works great with leaf sprung suspensions. Trucks like yours gets tons of wheel hop, that should solve the problem

Would the caltracs for the 93-96 f150/lightning fit? I had looked at these previously but I wasn't sure if they'd work without modification.

Oh oh! I've got Caltracs!

Depending on what you want to spend you can get a rear clip from Morrison that has rearend, suspension and frame rails. It is a lil pricey but its good stuff. Obviously caltracs work though.

Talked me smooth in to them.
Cal-Tracs it will be then! Now does any one have a means to order them... or do any of the site vendors have access to order these? :D

Instead of creating a new thread... Does anyone have recommendations for a fuel pump? I was looking to go the external electric route. The truck is to be carbed and I'd say 3******5hp would be a fair estimate. I'd like to have the opportunity or freedom to add nitrous later on without having to upgrade the pump again. I found a trickflow on summit for like $85... But idk.
