LOL. Yeah, well it was brand new when I bought it anyway.

As I have time, I'll start where I started taking pictures of the old girl.
I ordered the truck in Oct of 1988, told them I wanted a 6 cyl with a manual transmission to replace my 74 f 350

They told me no can do, they could only put that in a f 250, so I said I woild see what Gm had to offer.

Guess what?
they came through!

So Dec 23 1988 I took delivery of a 1989 F 350 4x4 custom 4.9 5 spd ZF with 4.88 gears.

The order came in wrong. No A/C, wrong seat, wrong radio, carpet instead of rubber floor.

The A/C was dealer installed. carpet replaced, radio I just lived with. More later as I have time,

Sorry I haven't updated in a bit. A lot going on here. Mostly need to put a whole pile of pictures in my old phone.

Here is a taste of now tho.
@tjctransport made me a memorial day deal. Roll up to his place, and he would GIVE me a 04 stuperduty rear, complete clear down to the tires. 2.73 with limited slip.
Springs, cables, etc.

Boom. I hit the road.

Found the front end one on the eastern shore in md.


Soooo. The restromod changed direction
This is the workup of the 04 axle in the 94 frame I'm building to put under the truck.

It wont hold air, the jack is holding everything level so I can put the gas crossmember back in the front.
No need in getting out the welder until I have more than 10 minutes work for it

Yeah. Got sidetracked. Big battle on facecrap on the front rear. Got the once over and crickets. I'll put his name in the rants later.

Just finished hooking another setup with a guy I'm going to see saturday. He has a bull nose on a superduty frame with a powerstroke. I believe I'll get him talked into joining up by the end of my visit......
Anyway here's a teaser
