A build thread for our Canadian red 1989 Ford F350 to be 4x4

Well I have talked about doing this and I finally got the truck to do it. This will be a very slow build thread as I already have tons of projects but here is the biggest one. We have a 1989 Ford F350 2wd crew cab 460 V8 manual tranny that we are turning into a 4x4 flatbed. Well the donor truck is a 1984 Ford F250 4x4 regular cab flatbed manual tranny. The transmission and transfer case along with front end are all going into the 89 crew cab. I got the 84 stripped to the frame and front end and rear end so far but more to do. We are also putting the 84's front clip on the 89. Pics Pics and more pics will be included.
The engine will be rebuilt along with the transmission and transfer case. Thinking on putting the rear end under it to but not sure. The rear end under the 84 is a Dana 60 I don't know about the F350.
This is going to be a daily driver for one of my brothers feel bad for him he wants the biggest gas hog on the lot. The paint is going to be a solid Candy apple red!

Here is Canadian red (the crew cab) as of now. That plywood is hiding a huge dent in the bed so that is why the bed is going.

When you say front clip, are you referring to the fenders, hood and grille? I'd love to see that come together, I prefer the 87-91 style over the 92-96, but the 80-86 is definitely my fave.

We got the Bed off the Canadian Red. Looks kinda neat without it. I am surprised that bed was even still on there the bolts were very loose.

Okay, just checking out your build thread from the other posts. There's a pretty nice crew-cab flatbed just down the road from me. I'll stop and see if I can get some photos to tease you. Now if the chick that lives there is out cutting the grass in her Daisy Dukes & bikini top so much the better tease!

BTW, where is "In the Backwoods"?

Hey Steve, I am in Snowflake, Arizona I am really 13 miles (highway) out and 5 miles (back roads) in. as you can see I get snow. Thats why I am getting it into a 4x4. I love to see examples that way I can get to see what I am up against. My brother loves this truck.

BTW: we are also going to make wood side stake ups for it to make it look like an old ranch truck. I also am thinking about putting a cowl induction hood on it for it to look super charged.

Here is the truck along with guy who is going to driver. (old pic before the bed was off). Also guys I am going to put stock rally wheels on it and put those white spoke wheels on another truck.
BTW: I put a battery in it to check the fuel pumps if they were working all good but the hoses need replaced they are all dry rotted.

tshrubb we are doing both building a house and working on the truck thats why this is a slow project.
Diesel Brad we are using the transminsion and transfer case out of the parts truck. It is a 460 V8 in the parts truck so the transmission will bolt to the engine in the crew cab. We have to rebuild the engine it has a million miles on it and it also has been sitting for a while.

You are NOT going to like that trans with No Over Drive. I would be looking at either putting a divorced T-case behind the 2wd trans or finding a 4wd ZF5 to put behind the 460

The truck I am not worried about not having overdrive if we need to haul so much we got our 2002 F250. This is just my brothers daily driver so I am not worried about transmissions. Trust me he will be happy just to have the truck running no matter if it had a 4 cyl engine in it.

Ok so I got the flatbed on Canadian Red. I still got to bolt it down and whatever. I am wondering do you guys think it will look better with LED tail lights or what? By the way I don't like how the headache rack has nothing protecting the back window so me and my brother thought it would be cool if we put a skull and cross bones (2 of them) on thier to protect the back window. I don't know if I am going to be able to put the 84's front clip on because it is pretty beat up. I am going to have to work on the truck with the flatbed on it so we don't have to get our propane guy out here agian to lift it. I am slowly thinking of more things to do on this truck. I know I am going to end up having to run 10 ply tires on this truck by the time it is all done.

You've probably found out by now but the F350 would have a sterling 10.25 rear axle. My understanding is they're slightly stronger than the 60. Subscribing just in case I ever find myself doing a 4wd conversion.
