OHHH.....headaches ! ....I' m painfully attempting to restore it as a stock modified restoration.....I bought it as a near DOA ranch truck.....managed to aquire allmost all new or restored interior parts, including a speedo n tach head unit....


..standard cab , fleetside , 4x4 , manual hubs /T-case, transmission......6.9 diesel.....

Factory Options

Ive swapped out the original front axle / suspension to a leaf sprung Dana 60 with Warn hubs, 4:10 gears n a Detroit locker, dumped the rear axle with the left hand tight lugnuts (what a pain in the ass ! ) to a Sterling 10.25 from a 1989 F350 7.3 with 4:10 gears n a Detroit locker , n swapped out the T-18 to a ZF - 5 manual tranny....swapped out the origonal 6.9 for a Jasper rebuilt crate 6.9 n added a ATS turbo with a AFE intake.....


seeee above......oh yeah , had Atlas Suspension build a front set of leafsprings , n I used Softride rear springs for tha ' ass end....but I'm DUMPING those for a set of Atlas rear springs , n Fox shocks all around... n' no blocks ....plan on dumping the B/W 1345 transfer case for an updated B/W 1355 ...ya , I know ...I could go for a NP 205 , but the mods r' killin ' me !!!! , a 1355 will swap right in without any mod costs....
