    I just looked at the pics of your truck. What an awesome job. The 300 I6 is my favorite of the ford engines. We definately need to get together. I got my chassis stripped and need to find a place to get it blasted. I planned to paint it myself but need to get it cleaned up first.

    Another question since I know you live close. Do you know how to remove the chrome trim from these trucks. I have a 78 150 XLT Lariat with the center moulding and the race track chrome. I have a guy that would like to buy it but not sure how to remove it without damaging it. [email protected]

    Do you know if I'll run into any motor mount issues? The highboy had a 360, I will be putting in a 351M/400. If you know other Ford guys looking for parts, I kept a few things off the 360. I already sold the heads and factory 4brl intake, but I have the block, 4 speed bell housing and inspection cover, timing chain cover (and gears and chain) 4x4 oil pan and pick-up tube as well as some other misc. I was planning on scraping the block, but it looks to be in decent shape, if any one is looking for one. I don't think I have enough posts to put an add in the classifieds, so if you have some contacts let them know. My cell is (931)216-7738. The motor is out of the truck and mostly dismanteled, I am putting the truck aside for a while I need to do some work on my Harley before spring and also service my tractor. I would like to get the extra stuff out of the way.

    I personnely would transfer the body over onto your highboy chassis; only issue on my swap over was location of bed bolts & positioning of the cab mounts. Not hard of a cahnge, plus keep it a highboy chassis in my opinion is better than running coil springs.

    Hey Mitch, been away for awhile but wanted to run a question by you. I rethinking my highboy build. Originally I got a 76 highboy with a trashed body and was going to take my pristine 78 250 custom 4x2 and swap everything over to the highboy chassis. Now I'm thinking about swaping t-case and 150 coil spring 44 into my 4x2 instead. What are your thoughts and can you direct me to any threads on this subject?

    No worries Mitch, been busy wiring my garage. Installed 200 amp box, buried service. Got through inspection and now trying to plan out lighting and plug layout. Gonna cover walls bottom half T111 siding and top half peg board. Been too cold to get motivated to wrench on anything so I figured I would get my shop in order this winter. I may try to hit the AACA swapmeet in Feb. maybe catch you there and buy you a cup of coffee. BTW if you go I can bring those bed strips to you. Mike
