Im trying to do this from my phone. Should be interesting. Haha
I picked up a 1995 F-Superduty in January.
I decided I'm going to make it a 4x4. Which has probed harder than anticipated.
I picked up a Dana 60 front axle with the bolt on calipers. But wait. That's 8 lug....
Got that covered.
Found a guy selling these...
Yup. 8 to 10 lug adapters!
So now the problem is the parking brake. Its on the transmission. Its nearly impossible to get the adapter for a 1356 or 4407 case to accept the parking brake.
So I found a New Process 205. High angle drive line makes a drive line brake for the NP205. That's going to solve that problem.
So now it'll be 4x4. Just have some loose ends to tie up.
New problem is the bed is 14 feet long! And its flat. Haha.
Sold the bed this week. I need to get it off the truck yet.
I found a 1 year old hydraulic pump for 300 bucks and a 9' long dump bed in pretty good shape for 1000.
So I've got almost all the pieces to make it a 4x4 dump.
I hate tan interiors. So I managed to find a full grey interior with the nice 40-20-40 seats.
Needless to say. Its going to be a hell of a truck!
I was going to sell my 96 F350. But I may keep it now. I would need a plow for this truck too. At least 9''6"
No other forums really. It will be. But not right now.
Turns out. I can't go any shorter than 9' for a bed. Wouldn't work for the front tank.
You can see the white 9' mark on the right. And the shiny spot on the left.
I work 84 hours a week. So project time is minimal lol.
Going to have my buddy who's a certified welder do the frame chop.
