I have not done this swap HOWEVER i plan on putting my 79 ex cab long box on my 97 f250 7.3T ex cab long box.

I got the idea from a truck i saw in an Ace Hardware parking lot.

There was a nice Bahama Blue 79 F350 sitting there.

As a Ford guy I had to check it out....

Peeked in the driver window and saw 90s dash...not sectioned/cut to fit.. thick stick 5 speed shifter with rubber boot....
rolled underneath, split front end (f250 1990's) 90s frame, 90s body mounts, 90's rear end!!
Breaking my own rule i popped his hood- banks turbo equipped diesel.....

And so my project begins... I can only assume it all bolted in place as i saw no fabrication underneath..
If i see the truck again i will stalk him and have a chat hahah

Have a couple pictures saved on my home computer if anyone is interested
