F100 Shortbed 4x4s

Kind of curious. Do any of you see many running around? I feel like i see a fair amount of shortbed 2wd F100s, and a fair amount of 4x4 F250s....but not many shortbed 4x4s....Is it just me?

I've got a SB 4wd '73.

Only a few Bumps and Dents in my area.... mostly due to age and longevity... or general lack thereof.

I've got a 72' F100 SWB 4x4 Ranger 390 with NP435.

I do agree with you though not many around.

I brought back a 1970 F100 4x4 back from the off-road graveyard. It had no drivetrain when I picked it up so it got a cummins 4bt.

I've seen a fair amount of short bed 4x4 dents...just not many bumps. Mine is a 1970 F100 Short bed 4x4 with the 360 rebuilt into a 390 and a NP435...AND power steering. It gets tons of looks and compliments..especially since it is a shortbed 4x4 bump. I would love to know production numbers but I have never seen anything that breaks production numbers down specific enough. May have to get a Marti report some day.
I do know that sightings (at least for me) are few and far between.

Right on. Look forward to following the build.
Here is my 4x4 shortbed. She's a good 20 footer. She'll never be a show truck (at least I doubt it), but I hope to get a fresh decent driver quality paint job done in the near future...probably go with Wimbledon White as opposed to the generic peeling refrigerator white she has from the previous owner.

Gotcha...must be the bigger rims that makes it look taller.
Mine above is 2.5" coils with 1 inch taller blocks in the rear and 33s on 15s.
