2001 SD & '93 f150 opinions...

i have a DD '93 f150 single cab short bed. it is good but i wanna do a solid axle swap in the future. for the same price i have the chance to buy a 2001 SD 7.3l 4x4. i wanna put the two together. if i put everything from the sd on my obs i have to box the frame and swap everything. or i could put the cab of my obs on the sd. because the bed is bad and interior is rough. any thoughts??? also the 7.3 need some fuel system work, but other than that is good

Trying to mate these two different generation trucks is going to be a nightmare. If you have the time, money and resources...go for it.

Either scenario has it's caveats. Personally I would pass on the Super Duty and stick to plan A (SAS with something known to be compatible).

I commented in your other thread, but I'm with rla, recommending neither approach. But it's your truck and your life, so I certainly won't be bothered if you go your own direction!

That diesel really needs the HD frame and suspension to hold it up so IMO it makes no sense to try and transplant all that into an old F150, if you got to swap something put the '03 sheet metal on the SD rolling chassis as best you can.
