Default New member Intro.

First off i apologize if this is in the wrong place.

i Bought my truck in Austin TX, from an individual who took good care of it. It was running and driving when i picked it up. The truck also came with both canopy's, the troop seats, extra drive line parts and 3 factory repair and operating manuals.

Ive been Following the page loosely or a while as i wasn't ready to start working on it but it will defiantly be in the modified category.

I still have a ton of decisions to make.

1. should i keep the axles or replace with either pre 2003 ford dana 60s. either way i will be re-gearing and finding a locker, i also plan for disc brakes.

2. still debating on replacing the transfer case with an NP205 or an atlas 2

3. I dont want to give away all the plans, but i will say its going to be a cummins swap with a 6 speed stick trans.

I will be adding power steering or hydro steering, ( please advise if you've done this please. )

4. The interior and guage cluster will be getting a make over ( details to come later )

Really exited to start this project and share with you guys.

Here is a link to see my truck and the work ive done so far today.

Welcome to the Zone. You probably came within a few miles of my place off 290 getting your truck home.

Judging by the pictures that work in the other post, it looks like it was a really clean all original truck. To get your picture to show up, you need to host them on an off-site picture page like Imgur.com (free) or other site like it. Photobucket use to be a real popular choice until they changed it a few years ago. Then click the photo link in the post and paste the link into it and the pics will show.

looks good.

FYI, don't scrap the bed parts. There is always someone looking for the floor to fix holes from rust, local VFD, etc.

Moved to appropriate forum...merged the threads and took out extraneous info...

Glad to have you on board!

Looks like a few foot bob of the bed there...you must have some big plans...
Yours came to you with the hood numbers? Nice!
