1970 F250 4x4 Cummins Conversion Build Thread - Lots of Pics!

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!

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.

Well we will see how this project goes. The only thing stopping me now is the almighty dollar
