Here are a few pixs of my Red '93 (#1251) Used as my daily driver and tow rig for the Stang. Only had it for about a year. Mechanically I have serviced everything on the drivetrain, but it could use some paint. Damn Ford for not using clearcoat in '93.

I've got the same '93 paint problem here. I bought the tonneau pre-painted with clearcoat, so it's the shiniest part on the truck.

I've also done a lot of work with it, a lot of maintenance. Then again, it just rolled over to 190,000 miles this morning.

I have always loved the first gen. lightnings, but I don't know sh** about them. You guys say you have done a bit of maintenance on yours, are you saying they have a lot of problems to tend to? I am just asking, cuz I have considered getting one, even considered trading my '93 gt for one! Do they cost more to maintain than a fox 5.0? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

Cool

Maintenance is maintenance. Just like on a stang. It doens't mean there's alot of problems with them. I had a lot of "problems" with my 96 GT. My 87 GT never had any problems. It had 147K when I got rid of it and the biggest thing that was ever done to it was replaced the water pump (it was stock down to the paper air filter). I could have used it as a show car and am still kicking myself for getting rid of it. Anyways, I've got 121K miles on my 94 L and no big problems at all. I just replaced the A/C clutch control sensor the other day. Just a few little usual maintenance things like that. Same as would be on a stang or any other vehicle for that matter. I would highly recommend one of these trucks. I won't get rid of this truck for another mustang. I'll eventually have another mustang but I'll also have a Lightning, too. As long as you take care of the vehicle it'll last along time. Especially the L's.

Well, maintenenance speaking out of perspective. I bought my truck with 164K miles on it. It now has 190K miles.

I've had to replace my power steering pump/gear box (twice, horrible shop did the first time), catback (muffler baffles fell apart), alternator, few coolant leaks here and there. Blew the EGR tube off my upper intake, and had to buy a new one, as well as a new EGR spacer (the studs sheared off ). Left upper ball joints seem to go out once a year, and brake pads every 4-5 months. Side window motor regulator TWICE, and it's still broken (rolls down to 3/4 down, then goes sloooooowly), and lots of cab rattles, suspension squeaks, and the dreaded dashboard rattle (there's a TSB replacement for that).

Overall, I'm still happy with it. When she's in good shape, it's a dream... I've learned to ignore some of the noises, the rest are usually easy to replace parts, or cheap labor by my tech/tuner, JJ (jjssvt.com)
