my '79 f150 build thread

here is my f150 custom build thread. so far it has a 6" skyjacker lift with tiny dunlop mud rover 35"s. the 4wd gave up on me. i'm currently in the process of diagnosing why. pulled the driveshafts and front diff cover and all looks well.












here is how it sits currently...





can't wait to get it back up and running. currently planning a 9" lift, rebuilt transfer case, upgraded axles, gears, locker, and at least 42" tires.

Your truck is looking good man. Sorry to hear about the 4wd going out on ya. Im in the middle of rebuilding a 78 myself. Where did you get the lift kit from? Im thinking about getting mine a little higher off the ground. Thanks

Great looking truck! I also wanted to fit 35's but lifting the 2wd is not as easy as it seems. Really like your ride height and that sun visor!! Keep us posted and good luck with the 4wd.

That D44 is gonna hate you for putting 42's on it. I wouldn't run bigger than a 35" if you're gonna be romping on it. ( oops didn't see that you were planning on upgrading axles) Are you going to a 60?
