My new SuperCab Australia

Hey, after always wanting a fit ruck if finely got one. This is my f250 SuperCab ranger. Does anyone know who owned this truck before me?

Also could you recommend a good offset to run on a new set of 16x10 rims? Looking to run 35' or 37'

And lower it a bit

Thanks
Also any f250 Facebook groups in au??

No not selling any parts off that one. I do have some misc parts laying around from a 4 door though. I'm going to be driving that Torino this summer, getting an overhaul and new 522.

Congrats on your supercab. Looks good.

"Also could you recommend a good offset to run on a new set of 16x10 rims? Looking to run 35' or 37'"

I'm running 16.5X9.75 with 4.5" backspace (-20mm offset?) 35X12.5 tires. I have about 2.75" clearance at full lock from the pitman arm. Gives the truck a nice stance IMO. If you keep some lift you should be ok with 37"

"And lower it a bit"

Lifted is great for rock crawling.... A PITA if you want to throw a bale of hay in the back.

I'm not in Aus. So you may still be the only one. Is it right hand drive, or do you think it was imported?

My truck only has a leaf added to the front. That brought the front up about 2.5 inches, enough to level out the truck and provide clearance for the 35's.

Running a 460.

Several places have the turn signal arm (dennis carpenter, lmc, etc). I've never seen a replacement shift arm.
