new to the site

...and the crew cab section is one of the main reason's I joined. There is another website for older crews, but after months of not getting a registry email, I sought someplace to share my passion (and build); so ford-truck enthusiasts it is.

Is there a build section I can post my project too? My project is as follows:

take a 1978/79 f250 4x4
add a complete drivetrain from a 1997 f250 (7.3 powerstroke)
make it fit
make it run
resto mod it

Right now I am in the make it fit mode, almost complete as the down pipe and radiator are the last steps.

Do I post my build in this forum, or is there another spot I should post it?

Thank you,
Adam

That white 75 cummins was just on ebay and only hit 15k which I thought was 3-5k light. 25k is a stretch considering the body repairs.


Edit: on ebay now with a BIN of 17,500 which is about right for that truck.

I've come across 2 crews in 2 days. Neither of these are for sale, I just ran across these. The green one I actually saw in the woods a few months ago, about 80 miles from here and tried to talk with the owner, with no luck. Then I came across it at a local business. It is sorta rough looking, but has a cummins in it.

The white one is a very nice looking truck. It is apparently in for some service a a local shop, I don't know anything more.

Great Website and Great Thread!

I have enjoyed reading all of the info and advice you guys bring to the table...

1978 F-250 CrewCab Short Bed
6in lift 37in tires
400 w/c6 tranny
D44 Front - D60 Rear

In the middle of getting into cosmetics on the truck and really having trouble finding the outside trim for the rear doors. i know this is probably been covered somewhere else. Pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated

Click the image to open in full size.


The pic shows the trim on the passenger side, but it pretty much missing all of it along the drivers side of the truck. However, as you can see, there are a few small pieces on the passenger side missing as well. When i do the trim, I want it to have all the new shine to it and to match. So I would like to get the whole set. No money for a full paint job or a restore, so I'm trying to find the small parts (trim and get the rust spots fixed) in the mean time.

Thanks again for all the info and help on bringing this truck to its full potential.
I'll post pics and progress as I go, once I get the hang of the site.

Nobody remanufactures that trim. You either have to find used pieces or cut done and modify pieces to work.

Nice Truck. I looked at that last year when it was for sale. Owner stated it was originally purchased by Warner Brothers (I believe) as a film crew truck in the desert.

The pieces you are looking for I too have searched for. I could not find anything, so it is one of those deals (in my case) that I either need to modify other pieces or scrounge around craigslist and swap meets.

Good luck and nice truck!

Maybe SC dent trim will work on the back doors with a little modifying? And modify a reg cab small end cab piece to work for the middle of a CC?

That is one damn sharp truck.
