1970 F250 4x4 Cummins Conversion Build Thread - Lots of Pics!

Let the journey begin! This started as a “budget” project, but we all know how that goes.

Picked up a 1970 F250 4x4 for $1200. It took the 300 mile drive home with no problems!

Plans for the build:

Suspension (10” Lift)
Front: 6.5” Pro Comp Super Duty lift springs with 4” custom drop hanger
Rear: 64” Chevy rear springs with shackle flip
Wheel base shortened

Dana 60 front from a 1979 F350
14 bolt rear

41.5” Pitbull Rocker Radials

1994-1998.5 Cummins
NV4500 5 speed transmission
NP205 Transfer Case


Dana 60 Front is in the House!

These gears are coming out and a detroit air locker is going in!

Picked up this axle for $2700. It had been completely rebuilt but the guy went a different direction with his project. High steer arms already installed.

Interior is stripped. What do you think of the bull bar? Picked it up at a local auto parts store for $75. It is for a cherokee... but will work nicely on this truck.

Truck is naked

Well we will see how this project goes. The only thing stopping me now is the almighty dollar
