Good looking truck man!

What is the difference in the STX's and 4x4's?

What kind of handle throttle mod did you do?

The STX model is just a higher trim level then an XLT. This truck has the upgrade center console and power lubar seats, but has the power windows and locks deleted.

The hand throttle I built is just a bicyle brake handle and cable that I built some mounts for in the cab and can be installed and removed in about 10 sec.

Mine Got Power Windows And Power Locks Its A 1993

I didn't mean that they couldn't have power windows and locks, I was saying that the original owner chose to delete those options from the STX package.
