Introduction

Hey guys,

New to the boards. Never good with intros. My names Andrew, 23 years old, work as a dispatcher.

I drive a 1987 F250 4x4 4 speed 460.

My girlfriend has a 1973 F250 460 swap not currently running.

Live in san diego. Waiting to finish getting my credit cleared up so I can join Navy Nuke. Other than that.


Truck looks like this trying to get it lowered though so I can use it.

Poor thing sat in a barn for 15 years of its life. Can you say VARNISH? But it all got cleaned out and ready to go.

Im 6'1" so I just put my leg up and jump in without an issue. I think I tried the chains once and got a nice purple shin for a week. I have regular steps but I am trying to lower her back down :P

I dispatch for a small Lincoln town car company. I hate the management but money is money. I only need to last out till I can hit the navy.

Yeah its a bit to high in my opinion. If you know anyone who wants a lift kit I can make a super deal for em. Basically I want my new tires out of it (I will source some rims) new shocks and new bushings for the suspension. Some gas in the tank and they can have it (I get their old suspension). I will obviously toss in my 37 humvee tires too . I even have a tire anchor for the bed I will toss in free of charge.

The lift is unreasonably tall and I cant load stuff in and out of the bed so its pretty much worthless and all things I use a truck for. Except looking cool. It looks bad ***.


I really want to get a dana 60 under the front but I would rather just have the damn thing back down to where I can load it up with rocks and tree stumps without needing a ladder.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Doesn't do any good to have a vehicle you can't use, and looking like a bad *** wears off pretty quick when it is such a pain to overcome the ride height.
