Hey, new on the site figured I'd stop in and say hi. I'm from Alberta, been runnin my truck in the mud bog competitions for about 5 years now and constantly buildin on the truck. Right now I have the engine (460) tore down for a rebuild but havent decided which way to go with it. It will be getting a solid roller cam, flat top pistons, H beam rods and a victor intake for sure, but the rest is still undecided. I have a C6 tranny, with a 2600 stall, likely be going to a 3500-4000 stall by spring. B&M ratchet shifter and a stage 2 shift kit. Dana 60 axles, detroits, 4.88s, 39.5 boggers, NP205 tcase, 6" suspension, 3" body lift, and a fairly straight body. RCI fuel cell, griffin rad, flex-a-lite efans, and dual optimas sittin in the box. Thats just the brunt of the truck, I could get into more detail but it'd be a lot of reading!! LOL
Welcome aboard; nice tough truck; reminds me of the days I would spend all weekend mudding and then the rest of the time cleaning!
Love the way the front grille is painted & stripped.

cool truck man. I think I've seen your truck on you tube as well wheeling the snow. It made me jealous at the time until this winter here in rainy victoria bc we got about a foot of snow and I took my 73 out with 44's for the first time and it went anywhere. Anyways welcome to the site I bounce between this 73-79 forum and the offroad one. There's a ton of info and guys who know so much on our trucks it's ridiculous...
'73 F250/44's,428 Cobra jet,Dana 60/70, ARB front and CTM joints/Detroit rear,5:13's , rear discs,winches F/R.
