The Garage Today

1992 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 5.0EFI 2WD Longbed

 I purchased this truck in June 2020.  It is a survivor truck, with just 59K miles at time of purchase. It was originally purchased by an elderly couple in Pennsylvania. They drove it sparingly and kept it garaged. They also had it undercoated prior to taking delivery. As a result, this truck is pristine underneath and remains about 80% original paint. I had the hood, cowl, and roof repainted due to sun damage.
This truck won a 1st-place class award at the 2021 All-Ford Nationals in June 2021 at Carlisle, PA.

Since the photos above were taken, we’ve added the following accessories:

  • Truxedo LoPro soft rolling tonneau cover
  • Black ABS bed rail caps
  • Backup Camera
  • Dash camera
  • Putco Red Blade tailgate light bar
  • Husky Classic floor liners
  • Owens Manufacturing molded steps painted to match
  • Stampede chrome bug shield
  • Window tint
  • Aftermarket head unit with pop-up LCD screen

2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

I purchased this new-to-me 2014 Wrangler Rubicon in 2016 with just under 20K miles. It’s a lot of fun to drive, serves as a convertible in the summer and a go-anywhere vehicle the rest of the year, and also plows my driveway in the winter.

It’s been outfitted with a Kenwood Bluetooth double-din head unit that allows hands-free phone and takes the video feed from the flush-mounted backup camera in my rear bumper. It also has a hybrid, zipperless soft top with sliding screened windows and a flip-back freedom panel.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic

We bought this Jeep to have a spare all-season vehicle that either we or our sons could use in the event of daily driver cars troubles. The F-150 is a 3-season vehicle and the Cougar and Corvette don’t come out in bad weather. The Cherokee can be used anytime, in any weather.

But Wait, There’s More…

The fun isn’t limited to a heavy-duty truck and two very different Jeeps. These two are also in the garage today:
