This is the start of the project F250 long wheel base and the motor was in the bed. I've already started on this and will be up dating it soon.

found some 30" and 32" tilt columns on ebay... was wondering that maybe I might go with 32" since I'll be lifting the 2wd 2.5-3 inches... might be just enough to make up for having to use longer DD rods... thoughts?

Ford truck 32 inch tilt column
