Check out my avatar. And you'll see a picture of my Dent, it's the red 78 F-150 Ranger Lariat, that picture was taken on West Avenue, at the Baker flagpole bus stop, near the Gothic dorm buildings at Cornell University., herre in Ithaca NY. In my gallery I have some more that we're taken last Fall at the beautiful Cornell Plantations at Cornell University.

Nice looking Dent, Dirky! Check out my avatar and also my gallery, and you'll see my Dent, it's a red 78 F-150 Ranger Lariat Trailer Special two wheel drive.

New here. I have had this truck since I was 16. It means a lot to me. I hope to get some fresh paint on it some day before the cancer takes over too far.

I love that brown paint scheme. I hope you stay with a factory look when you paint it!

My gate.

Dirky, that almost looks like the tailgate on my 78 Rangee Lariat, although yours is a 76 Ranger XLT. Although the Lariat came out in 78, another difference is that you have the tie downs on your tailgate, and I don't, although I know they were an option from Ford, and in the middle of the lower part of the tailgate I have an emblem that says Trailer Special, and I see that your truck is a
Camper Special. What's the difference between the Trailer Special and the Camper Special? I always thought that the F-250 Camper Special was an f-250 with really beefy, heavy duty springs, and heavy duty cooling system if I'm not mistaken. It's still a sweet looking truck nonetheless.

1bad79xlt, Sweet looking truck, and welcome to FTF, you'll learn a lot about the 6th Generation trucks, and another good site for 6th generation trucks is fordification.net, which is strictly 6th Generation Fords, you might want to keep your truck out of the salt to preserve her.

Derek.
I will definitely stick with two tone, the racetrack trim and the factory look. I like that blue and silver you have. I would like to use that color combo or reverse to silver on the side over blue.
