Let the journey begin! This started as a “budget” project, but we all know how that goes.
Picked up a 1970 F250 4x4 for $1200. It took the 300 mile drive home with no problems!
Plans for the build:
Suspension (10” Lift)
Front: 6.5” Pro Comp Super Duty lift springs with 4” custom drop hanger
Rear: 64” Chevy rear springs with shackle flip
Wheel base shortened
Dana 60 front from a 1979 F350
14 bolt rear
41.5” Pitbull Rocker Radials
NV4500 5 speed transmission
NP205 Transfer Case
AND MUCH MUCH MORE!
Dana 60 Front is in the House!
These gears are coming out and a detroit air locker is going in!
Picked up this axle for $2700. It had been completely rebuilt but the guy went a different direction with his project. High steer arms already installed.
Interior is stripped. What do you think of the bull bar? Picked it up at a local auto parts store for $75. It is for a cherokee... but will work nicely on this truck.
Truck is naked
Well we will see how this project goes. The only thing stopping me now is the almighty dollar
