Was thinking about sellin my CCLB 7.3 5 speed.

I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I was offered 13k as is. 170k miles on my truck.

And our trucks are getting rare to find. Especially in great condition. And it's a crew cab 5 speed ! I get so many compliments and so many questions on my truck that it's unbelievable.

I was going to sell my truck for a Dodge Cummins but I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of my ford. And go into 15-20 k of debt. My trucks already paid for. And I've put about 10 grand into it.

Here is a list of things id still like to do to my truck

-better turbo (I want something that gives me more power. But I don't want something that is going to tear my truck apart. ) any suggestions on turbo ?

-lift springs in rear to eliminate blocks

-**already have stage 1 rosewoods**

-e fuel at some point

-drop Pitman arm

-possibly a redhead steering box
And idk what else

My truck has an E4OD. I'd like to have the 5-spd. Either way, I have no plans on getting rid of her. I'd like to do more modifications (injectors, turbo, etc.), but that isn't going to happen in the near future.

I believe the S366 is a popular turbo upgrade. Try a search for "Turbo upgrade" or something similar. You'll find many results on this topic. Contact some of the site sponsors, too. They'll have lots of ideas for you.

I said the same thing a couple months ago when a guy offered me 18k for my dually. I turned it down. Well he has made another offer so the dually will have a new home in a couple weeks.

The new offer is 16k, I keep my built engine and put the original 53k mile engine back in.

How do I know how much lift I have in my truck?
There is a block that's 4 inches tall I believe is the stock one. And there's also a block that is 3 inches tall that I think is the aftermarket one on top of the 4 inch block.

So that means I only have 3 inches of lift right?
So Wouldn't the four and a half in shackles make it sit higher in the rear than the front?

DO NOT STACK BLOCKS
That's asking for unsafe things to happen

On the rear it's already lifted with blocks. I want to fix the axle wrap I'm getting.
I was just wondering what size of shackle reverse to get. I believe my truck is lifted 3". But not sure. They sell 4.5 & 2" kits. And I want my truck to sit level. Not rear higher then fromt

So take out the stock four inch and leave the three inch in there.

If you want fix the axle wrap, get rid of the stacked blocks and use lift springs with traction bars. Stacked block are a good way to get you or someone else injured or killed.

I've seen truck spit stacked block out.

Skip the SKY stuff. Look at RUFFSTUFF. They make a QUALITY product. Especially when you consider the weight of these trucks

I have a set on my bronco





O, did I mention it also gives you the RIGH pinion angle too

Did you have to re drill for the ruff stuff or bolt right on ? (From the licit looked like you had to do some grinding or something ) I just want it to be simple and correct. And safe )

Yes. I had to drill all 4 holes. I just tack welded one in place and set the weight of the truck on it to make sure I had good shackle angle. (it was close but not quite right). SO I ground the spot welds off and repositioned. Then drilled my 4 holes.
