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.

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.
