So here it is. I'm 28 just got ahold of a 1985 F-150, 302 FI, AOD 4spd, 2wd, for free and i'm looking to set it up for some fast trips through the desert. I have driven nice trucks off-road they have just never been my truck so I was never involved in the build. I am car savvy but all of my experience is from street racing. I am just looking for some guidance at this point as to the best course of action for a normal guy with a normal budget to eventually go very fast off-road.
