    here's some pics of my 1996 f350 i bought back in may to replace my 1986 f250. the factory setup i was after and i found in this truck was 351 engine, e4od trans, 4.10 gears, towing package, cab lights, rear sliding window, and XL package - i didn't want power anything. manual windows, locks, no carpet - i like to keep it simple.

    i searched for this truck for 7 months before finding it. body is in excellent shape. all original paint.

    since purchasing it, i've done quite a bit of work - pulled motor to install new oil pan, new radiator support, FMS stainless shorty headers, bassani Y pipe, 70 series flowmaster, clean and paint engine, clean and paint frame to end of cab (will pull bed and do rest of frame in the spring), all new brake lines and transmission lines, transgo shift kit installation, rear end full locker, all new brakes, all new fluids. clean, paint, and swap plow from 86 f250, etc, etc - the list goes on.

    the current rims/tires will come off probably next week and the stock steel rims with 235 85 16 snow tires will go on.

    what do you guys think?

    Awesome truck. I had a 1996 F350 with a 460 & 5 speed, 4:10 gears, and Detroit lockers front & rear. The thing was a beast, wish I still had it. Yours looks great!! :nod:

    Sweet truck! I never liked how the old school Meyer and Westerns sat behind the bumper. Pretty hack to me. Fisher designed it right to go in front of the bumper.

    Nice truck. I have a 1994 F350 and I just put new tires on the stock rims, they are 235/85/16 like you mentioned, and they looked so small on such a big truck.

    thanks guys. the front bumper can go back on, but it would be just spaced out from its factory location. i'm gonna leave it off for now and then make some brackets in the spring.

    i did find it locally. only about 5 miles from me. funny how that worked out after searching for so long...

    can't wait to get our first snow and see how she does.

    Wow very cool. How do you like the shift kit? Feel like it's helped alot? I've got a 96 F250 and i've kinda been thinking about a shift kit but i'm not sure how much it would do? Would you recommend yours?

    That truck is straight- pretty rare to see one so rust free. Post up some pics of the motor and frame. Real nice.

    here's some pics of the motor and engine bay prior to reassembly. i'll get some pics of the interior and completed engine compartment.

    as for the shift kit, i love it. highly recommended. nice, firm shifts. that means less slippage, less wear, and lower trans temps. the e4od's die of high temps. an auxilary trans cooler is the first priority (the factory gave me one with the towing package), followed by a shift kit. i got my kit for $60. transgo makes a more expoensive kit used for serious towing, but i didn't need that. its cheap insurance to protect the most expensive (and overlooked) part of your drivetrain.
