    I do buy and sell a lot of parts for 73-79's and try to get most of it from out west.
    I've got a couple really good cabs, might need some minor floor pan work that I could do in my body shop for you. Shoot me an email timspur@yahoo.com and I can reply with pics of any parts you might need. Thanks, Tim.

    Well...It's there but not here. I did not have the right tools with me. I tried loosening the frame brackets figuring it would slide right off. Well,that 2nd bolt would not budge. So I tried to pry the z bar off the frame bracket with success but the pedal linkage bound it up and I was screwed. So there are 2 trucks with the rod and hopefully they will stay put for a week til I can get back there.

    This piece you need looks like a threaded stud... right. There was a couple more trucks that had 4 spds but they seemed crooked and I kept looking until I found a straight one.

    I wanted to look at a couple more trucks but that bracket kicked my butt and will go back next week.

    Tell me about the bed. What kind of shape is it in, does it have a tail gate? I'm building this truck for show so I need something fairly straight. What kind of price on it? I also know a guy down here needing a short bed too. I'm going to order a suspension kit next month so that will take up the funds for this year. (wifey says) But if you still have it come spring I might take a trip. I'm trying to keep from going out west or south.

    Anytime, just let me know. Still have that brown bed from Georgia although it kinda depends on how pretty you have to have it.

    Hey Phil,
    just found your post. I normally just read the forums and don't bother to log in. Anyway the truck is coming along. I set out to do this truck in 5 years and as I've named it nickel and dime at a time. So far I've got the frame painted and the axles have been gone through. I found a 429 to replace the 6 banger. I'll need a bed sometime but not in a hurry at this point. I hope to order the suspension in the next moth or so. That's my goal for this year is a rolling chassis. I'll probably go with 33-35's on it.

    I just recently purchased a 1979 Ford F250 Ranger. I have plans on restoring it from the frame up. I was curious how your build was going? I just joined the forums here and I am looking for some people with similar trucks.

    My truck has a 400 in it currently, Dana 44 up front, and a 9" in the back. My goals are to lift it 4"-6" and put some 36" tires on it.

    Well anyways, let me know how your Rough Country suspension worked out for you and how things are coming around.
