Evolution of "The Mistress"

The day I bought her:

1995 F350 Dually, 160k miles



SRW Conversion and $100 bed from a '87 F150



Primered



Painted and new headlights (3" body lift, Ugh, glad I got rid of that!)



No body lift and 4" factory blocks in back



4x4 Conversion (Dana 60 and 3" RSK)

Yeah... I'm still debating if I want to go up to 35's or not. If I had 4.10 gears in it I'd definately go a little bigger, but with 3.55's it might put too much stress on the transmission. I'm happy with the 33's that are on it, they just look a little small...

Thanks Allen. It's finally turning from the truck I got a great deal on to the truck I really wanted!

Looks real good and I see you have the steps on the front. Since no steps on the back I'm guessing you are stuck with the car seat duty.

I had to order the steps from two separate sources, so the first pair came a few days before the others. I have the ones for the back, just havn't had time to put them on yet.

I masked off the step pad on them and put spray-on bed liner on them for better traction. I think they turned out good. I'll get a pic of the steps up soon.

Those do look nice. Now is the wife going to let you out of car seat duty?

Nope, I don't see that happening anytime soon. I can always use my bad back excuse but that doesn't work all that often...
