I know first gen SVT Lightning owners often feel left-out when people start discussing SVT Lightnings. Let’s face it, some Ford guys do not even know that there was a 93-95 SVT truck; but, let’s look at this from the glass half full perspective – these trucks are actually pretty rare when compared to their 99-04 counterpart. Even better news is that we carry parts for your hard to find 93-95 Lightning and we know a thing or two about them as well.
