video driving 56 f600 on freeway

My daughter and I drove the 56 f600 20+miles to Ronnies morning get together.
Quick info on the truck: engine is from a 94 Ford f700 5.9 Cummins diesel, fuller 6sp from a 95 Ford f650+ 4sp spicer aux, dana 80 with 3.31 ratio. from a 99 Freightliner
Video was 25min edited it down to 9.5 min (still too long) you can fast forward to the 3min mark to start the freeway run or the 7min mark to arrive at the get together.

Thanks for watching.

Thanks for posting the video! You have done a fine job of converting the truck to run with todays highway speeds.

Very cool. You've captured the feel of driving a real truck. You shift the gears like you've done it a time or two.

Great job but your next video we expect to see both hands on the trans sticks and spliting the trans gears at the same time, thats when you will be a real truck driver, I enjoyed the video, all of it, Garry

tip49 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Great Video

Enjoyed the ride, felt like we were really moving along.

Looked like you might have retained the "Arm Strong" steering.

I can remember the first time my daughter and I went for a ride in the truck.

Good post.

Tom
