I have 35s on my 1979 F-250 with a 4" all spring lift. They are mounted to factory Ford 16" OBS Alcoas. I could go bigger if I want. I think I could fit 37s, but I would probably have to remove the...

You know you drive a dent when:

Wow, that's rough. On my return trip I had a stiff head wind (probably about 30mph) and cruised 75mph straight into it. Fuel economy dropped to about 9.5mpg and the wind noise got even worse. The...

Absolutely! I'm always looking for some good parts. I'm looking for a straight bed, some good doors, rear bumper, and a few other odds and ends. I think I still have your number too.

I'm not complaining about the 11.5. I estimated that I would get between 10 and 12 mpg. It's lifted on 35" tires and has the aerodynamics of a brick house. I knew fuel economy would be bad. I'm...

The truck actually did very well. It really sucked the fuel at about 11.5mpg. Other than that it drove very smooth, had PLENTY of passing power, and ran a little under 2,500 rpm at 70 mph with the...

That's funny you should post that. That was actually my second choice for a mounting location. I was really torn between the two spots and ultimately went with the lower location. Looks good though!

Really haven't done much to the truck lately. I actually did my first road trip in the old girl since I've had it. I decided to drive the truck almost 400 miles each way to visit some family in the...

My 79 is currently my daily driver. I also have a 97 F-150, but I haven't even started that truck in almost a month. There's nothing wrong with the 97, I just like my 79 better.

I use the 79 to...

460 is a 385 series. Unless you are running crazy big power and really hot plugs/coil you're not going to benefit going to an MSD or Pertronix. It will just look cooler under the hood of your...

So basically putting the 79 supercab F-350 body on the frame of a 78 supercab F-250 4x4? Yes that will work. Of course you will need to use the trans and T-case from the F-250 4x4. All body mounts...
