79 f250 super cab 4x4

So i picked up this super cab a few months ago and have been working on it little by little. It is a lariat model so it came with all the bells and whistles like tilt column, intermittent wipers, lighted vanity mirror, and so on..I picked it up for $900 and about 5 hours of driving north to get it. it had a rebuilt 400 engine and c6 trans, np205 tcase with a dana 44 front axle and 60 rear.
heres when i first brought it home.



first thing i did was remove the camper

I then swapped in a front dana 60 with crossover steering and installed a 6" skyjacker lift and 37" tires. also put on my bumper with warn 12k winch.


i cleaned up the engine bay a bit and installed dual optima red tops, new super cooler radiator and a few other things.

Now im at the point where im swapping in a np435 manual trans. i had the trans rebuilt by a friend and i resealed the transfer case.


since im already going to have the rear drive shaft redone with 1350 yokes im going to swap in a 14 bolt with a detroit locker and disc brakes.


I just started tearing it down today and here is how it sits.

Thanks

Wow, very nice truck and a steal for $900. There is one very similar to that for sale locally for $5000. And he will probably get that for it.

Thanks. I was hoping you had a bought kit. I like the looks of the crossover and I'm sure it drives better than the push/pull. I'm in the middle of the D60 swap and it looks like I'm going to need a drop pitman arm and another drang link possibly. So I'm trying to decide if I should just go the crossover route.

That is a very good looking truck. Where did you find it? I'm about 5 hours North of you. Just curious.
