We did the glass packs also. A very few friends installed muffler cutout kits which was a cable operated sliding cover that went over a cutout in the exhaust.

You pulled the cable when you wanted to make noise and closed it when you didn't

My dad had 2 "work trucks". They were also used for fishing and hunting trips, jaunts through mountain roads, and were not treated gently.

The were both 3/4 ton Chevys....a 1950 and a 1958. I leaned to drive on the 1950, and "inherited" that as my daily drive when Dad didn't need the 2nd truck for his business.

I bought used Chevys for my 1st couple of "$600" trucks.

I bought my 1st new truck in 1979. I checked out Chevys and Fords (no close Dodge or Toyota dealers), and decided on an F150.....it was the best deal.

Sold that truck in 2006 when I bought my current ride. I figured I would give Ford 1 more chance.

My dad had a 1977 F150 and 1979 F250. Neither one of them was any good. As a young whipper snapper, the bench seat worked out great for me.

I would not have bought I Ford if it were a 1979 model. The 2011 are much improved. I had to do a lot of research to switch. After comparing the F150 to all others... they were the clear leader in all areas. Better frame, suspension, transmission, cab, power train, cargo box, more hardened steel in the cab. more stability on rough roads. All around more thought is designed and built into them.
Chevy seems to have the mindset of "how can we make it cheaper"
and it is not our problem after we sell it.

my fav truck of all time, mine was green with a white cab roof, 275k on the 302 and the only thing done was valve cover gaskets (all the time) and timing gear
