This truck will be a beast. Looking forward to the next steps and final product.


Thanks guys. There is a super clean Extended Cab on the net hat is white and gray. I'm thinking White and Dark Stone would look sweet and allow me to keep the original brown seats.

Which trucks? You can pick up or find Crew Cab '70s Fords in the $4k-15K mark in **** to very good condition. Fully built rigs can go for anywhere from $50k all the way up to $150k. I sold my FJ45 Pickup last year for $75K. Took me awhile to find the right buyer but finally did. Last year a Crew Cab Defender 130 went for $120k. If the rig is done right the stars are the limit. Key is not over doing it. I went a little too far on my FJ with 37" tires and a spring over. If I'd have left it a spring under with enough lift for 35"s I could have got $100k. Key is finding odd models that have become harder to find. Took me about 2 years to find my '75 Crew Cab F700. And I got lucky and found it for $2500. That'll be a budget build though at around $10-20k when I'm done. I picked up this truck for $4500. Body was in great shape but even though it already had a 12v in it I had to cut and yank everything and start fresh.

Those prices are for good bodies though. Rust buckets and '60s Fords can be had for $500-1500. I think I paid $2400 for my '64 F250 and it was a good runner. You can even still get lucky and find good bodies in the '70s models for those prices. The crew cab bodies though are starting to get rare. Heck even the '96-97 CrewCab Shortbeds and Extended Cab Shortbeds are starting to get hard to find in good shape.

Depends who you ask. I have tones of friends including myself that have had nothing but wiring gremlins with Dodge parts. For large HP you have to go twin pumps on CP3 anyways. I just got talked into buying a full comp pump capable of quadruple digits. Including the 2nd Cp3 it'd probably cost 60-75% of what I paid for the Comp P-pump and be way harder to dial in. Jefferson State are my buddies and they made a kit. Chris is running P-pump on his shortbed standard cab that just ran 10.3 in the quarter with the pump I'm getting and over 1000 on fuel only. They did a kit on a customers truck with the conversion and a conservative P-pump with twins and dynoed 750. The customer hasn't needed to bring the truck in since and that was 3 years ago. I'd do anything to have a Mechanical Pump setup for my 6.7, 6.0, or 7.3 Powerstroke. It'd be a walk in the park adding fuel.

UPDATE 2/4/15

Someone had asked for clearance pictures of the driver side and pinion. So last night we drilled out the holes for the 1" hardware for the EMF Joints. I don't think those are breaking. lol Next on the list we are going to start rebuilding the core support and making the radiator supports. Going to make the upper piece that we cut out removable and open up the center about 3" to accommodate more air flow. Then we will move onto the Intercooler and puting the front clip back together for pictures.

Got the core support back together and double sheared. Next will be putting the front clip back together and getting the intercooler all mounted in and clearance.

UPDATE 2/11/15

So I'm a little ahead of myself but I pretty much got the grill close enough to fit with the intercooler in. The kids I got it from were trying to hopefully beat down the lip of the core support enough for the intercooler to fit. Only problem is the bottom of the intercooler still needed to go another 3" back past the face of the core support. Because the front grill has a reverse slant to it the Intercooler has to be recessed at the bottom. I had to do a ton of trimming but it is going to come out very clean. Cut out the lower 3/4 of the center core support that protrudes toward the grill on the sides. Then notched out the lower corners of the core support for the Intercooler to recess. Plan is to drop some 16 Gauge down in there and burn it in to reinforce the lower corners of the core support. We have cut some gussets to drop down into the body mount ears out of 1/4" to reinforce them too. When all is said in done the front clip will be stronger than ever before, have a ton of air flow, and all fit in the factory package. On the grill I will only have to trim the lower clips off each right and left grill to clear the Intercooler. No one will ever notice they are missing.
