Started life as a 1992 F250 with a high horsepower panty dropping 351 windsor, and thats right...a 5 speed manual to put that 200hp and 315ft lbs of input shaft snapping torque to the ground.



Got smashed into by a buddies 96 powerstroke



Then the tear down came



And some more tearage downage



Look at all that rust from under the 5th wheel plate



Stripped down to bare frame, painted with por 15, kp dana 60 installed and 6 inch tuff country lift kit installed



Pulled the engine out of the derdge



Engine in the Ford using Ford Cummins mounts



Bell housing adapter for a getrag to nv 4500 conversion



Merica' beer pong table and transmission installed



New cab on and making progress





More progress, found a rust free bed and test fitting tow mirrors



Body work almost finished, getting ready to be sent to Line-X of Mason City, Iowa



Fresh out of the Line-X shop



Put back together



No pics, but installed a 3.5 PMF rsk and lowered the rear back down quite a bit, now it doesn't ride like a dump truck!!!



And the most recent pic, playing in the snow in the middle of our field

That looks like a clean swap bud. Can't wait to see the next one.

Thanks man, the next one won't be a restoration but I will take tons of pics of the swap and try to make it look like a factory install.

great looking truck, 3 questions though. first, who makes those rims? second, have any pics of the motor in? third, if you don't mind telling, how much was it to line-x the whole truck?

Eagle alloy makes them, I do have a couple pics of it in, and it was 4500, to do the whole truck red plus have the inside of the bed done in black. If I did it over the only things I would change would be a pmf 2.25 inch lift, zf6, and 33 inch mud tires instead of 35's. And probably start with a rust free truck.
