After wheeling my 1977 F-150 for a few years at Gilbert, Appleton, AVF, Dresser and Rochester, it was time to start on a new truck.
I started making a list of changes I wanted in a new truck so I could gather parts while limping the old truck along.
Rear Lincoln Locked
Skyjacker 6" lift
-Fuel Injection or Propane
-Lockers or LS Front & Rear
-More flexible suspension
-Four wheel disk brakes
Initially I bought a 89 F-superduty with a 460EFI 5spd to build the truck on, but after working on the truck, I decided I wanted more interior space and the truck was going to end up too heavy with the F-superduty frame.
After a little more searching, I came across the donor for the new wheeler.
A 1995 F-150 2wd 300EFI E4OD
The truck was a little ruff around the edges and missing some items, but the price was right.
Looking back I should have found a rust free Texas truck to start with.
