    well since i started this thread. let me know what you want for a fiberglas one and if anyone else is interested it would be cool to have one. But understanding the limits of time i wouldn't ask you to get all the stuff ramped up again for just one.

    doing 1 or 10 doesnt really change the time invested individually, so even doing just 1 isnt a huge headache.


    Fiberglass ones are $350+Shipping which runs $75 for 99% of the US.

    Been mostly fixing “professional” shops crap. There was 3’ of extra battery cable clamped between the stock battery terminal clamps and the battery. ALL of the speaker wiring had to be redone. Speaker adapter plates made from plywood and installed with drywall screws.
    Aftermarket alarm that has exposed wiring everywhere (still havent gotten all of this mess sorted)
    Leaf springs that need replaced.
    Upper control arm uni-balls that are worn out and need replaced... but as so rusted inside the cups i have broken 3 press setups trying to get them out.
    Had to rewire the entire radio system... thay was a headache.

    and then its just been 100k mile service crap (fluids, plugd, wires, etc).

    most of it hasnt been that bad, just big ticket items (leaf springs were $3k!).

    Knowing now what i do... i wouldnt of bought the thing. Its a blast to drive, but for what i have put into it time and money wise, i could of completely rebuilt the drivetrain and accessories in my other truck (minus engine and trans).


    The raptor blue books higher now than when i bought it and i have been tempted to just sell it... especially on a day like today when i’ve spent 9 hours trying to get 1 damn uniball out of the control arm and broken 2 more tools...

    haha. Yea its a blast to drive... these upper control arms are hopefully the last major hurdle i have to deal with..

    My wife has been on me about removing the camper shell and bed rug.

    i told her i would as long as she doesnt complain about me getting a bed cage and 4” shocks for 17” of rear suspension travel. Lol

    she was fine with it till i told her the shocks were $4k for the pair. Lol

    Just to be clear. The spoiler that Thomas makes is for the New Edge or the Jellybean?

    Jellybean?? It’s for the new edge. He hasn’t had an opportunity to get his hands on a 94-98 to design one for it

    Its a new edge thing.

    94-98’s are worth a fortune in my area. A junk v6 is $1500-2000. Even with a blowm motor and shit paint.

    Not sticking? They’ve been called jelly beans for a long time. Apparently it’s a term for all late 90’s models cars.
