1/4" thickness vs 1/8" thickness... The 350 and 250hd measured in at 1/4 thick and a lot beefier, 250's were about 3/16" thick and 150's were 1/8" thick. So we got a lighter frame. Waiting on guy to strip it down

I had found a company a couple years ago that made fiberglass fenders only, but I can't seem to locate them.

Not sure what you would think of a one piece front clip, seems like it might be a bit of a pain. The hoods don't seem too badly priced though. Haven't looked at Harwood just yet, but I hear they're good to deal with.

What transfercase do you have?
Sorry to thread hi-jack, but I've just ordered a set of CHI 2V 190cc heads for mine. My bottomend is cleveland, storked to 4" and bored .040"
I'm just about to put my NP208 back together, and the tiny little teeth on the plate that drives the annulus looks like it's gonna be the frst thing to die.

Cheers,
Chaise.

I have been running a 1356 for 16 years in the truck. Broke it ONCE at 350,000 miles on a hard clay track(stretched the chain). Went to the junk yard and bough a used one for $100 and been using it since

He's refering to the BorgWarner 1356 transfer case. It came stock in most 87 and up Ford 250's and 350's.
