LOL, know the feeling. A freind will bail you out of jail, but a true freind will be right there beside you in the jail, waiting for someone to come bail you both out........

I'm pulling my parts truck cab off this weekend, box and engine still on the truck. I'll let you know how it goes and I'll take pics of how I did it.

Well cab is off, was actually very easy. It was striped to the bone! No glass, nothing.


Weighs about the same as a long box.


We picked it up by the rockers, and walked it out towards the drivers side, stop, lay it down on the engine and by the box, get up standing on the passenger side frame rail, pick it up again, move it more towards the drivers side. Sat it down passenger side rocker on drivers side frame rail. Both of us on driver side of cab, pull it up and heres what it looked it right after we did that.

Ok i have a 95 f250 4x4 truck. Will it work on my 83 f350 chassis? I know that i will have to get the 95 clutch pedal and change the wiring but will the cab and front clip bolt onto my frame or will i have to modify in any way?

Frame mounts are in the same location until the body change after 97.

Only time the frame width is different is if the F350 was a cab/chassis setup. If it had a regular box on it, the frame width is the same and the cab mounts will be located the same. I think they are the same anyway for the cab chassis setup, but would have different brackets to keep the mounting the same.

On the speedo, you would need to have a rear axle from a 87 and newer truck to get the speed sensor in the axle housing, as the 95 is electric, the 83 is cable. You would also have to run the wiring to keep it working as well.

Im thinking the 83 f350 is a cab and chassis. It was built to be a rollback. Thanks for the info on the speed sensor. I wasnt sure if it was on the tranny or rearend.

Ok i got another question. Will i be able to disconnect everything from the motor and chassis and remove the body mounts in the radiator support and body and lift the cab and front clip off the frame in one piece or do i have to pull it apart down to just the cab? I have access to a fork lift or backhoe to lift it but i would like to do it in one piece if i can.

You can lift it that way, main trick is finding the balance to keep it from tipping down. The cab of course is the heaviest part, and the clip will offset the center of gravity, so the clip will make it swing down if you try to lift by the cab alone.

Actually, it is becoming common practice to use a lift to raise the cab and clip to work on the newer trucks.

Not sure, but something you could possibly try is to hook up the speed sensor wires to the cruise sensor if so equipped. If not, you can get them, they simply splice in to the cable, and give an electrical signal. Gear Vendors use those to run their controller, but I can't begin to promise that it would actually work, as I don't know if the frequency would be the same or not, just an idea that you could try. Worst thing that happens is that it doesn't work.

In order to put the older dash in the newer truck, I believe you have to change everything. If you were doing a 87-91 cab, you would still have a cable, but they had the speed sensor in the rear axle for the ABS. I am also under the belief that the mounts for the dash have to be adapted. It has been done, and there are threads on doing it, so if you do some searches, you should find them.
