My F600 Crewcab Dually Project

I've been scanning this site for several weeks now and I've found a lot of helpful information. I'll probably need a lot more help and ideas getting going with my project. I have what I feel is a pretty solid plan. I'm sure it's been done, because I've found pictures of completed trucks, but this one will be mine.

I bought a wrecked 92 F600 cab and chassis a few months ago with a 6.6l that has just under 34k on it. I hadn't intended to do much with it other than repair the damage and use it, until I started seeing some of the custom trucks out there. I started looking for my ideal build and decided on making an F600 Crewcab Dually.

I picked up my F350 cab and bed yesterday and am really looking forward to getting started. If there is enough interest I'll try to document as much of the work as I can to help others that might be interested. Let me know.

I welcome any and all questions and remarks.

John B.

Yeah, I think it will be. Working on getting them both stripped out to see were my cuts need to be.

Thanks

I have never dinked around with a F-600 or larger truck, though in the future that would be of interest to me as well. I have my hands full right now, LOL!

I like the project you have going here! Pics would be really awesome! Is the F-350 cab the same as the F600 cab? This is a very interesting project!

The doors and windshield are the same. I'll have to find the cut points on both cabs, but I'll keep the nose of the F600 with the firewall, some of the windshield frame and the floorboard. The F350 will get the same cut and weld the two together.

There's an album link in my signature for pictures.

Worked on trying to get the F600 started this afternoon so I can move it around. It run out of fuel sometime back and now I'm having a real time getting it going. Got a sputter out of it but that's it. This is my first diesel, but I've got some experienced help available. Pretty sure it's air and trying to work it out with the hand pump. Anybody got any 6.6L experience they care to share?

Thanks,
John B.

I found this book online. I'm sure it'll help a newbie like me get things going.

It's even easier than having factory fenders, It's a factory bed. The hard part for me is going to be the cab work. Do you have pictures of your mods on the Bronco?

Hello Cajunscout,

I think that from the firewall on backward all Ford cabines are the same Sheetmetalwise than that is.

I may have to look you up someday, I have thought of doing just what you are doing, but I never had the money or the time to get-r-done.

I'm most definitely going to be watching the progress here!!

BTW I'm up the road in Cleveland...

A friend of mine had done a similar mod on one a few years ago, but used an extra cab. That's what got me started on this idea. But I ran across a picture that made up my mind what I was going to do. This one has six doors, and is an F800, but great idea.



Thanks,
John B.
