Rescued f-350

I just salvaged this 1997 f-350 regular cab xlt Rescued f-350-newinventory-006.jpg
I removed the box it was done. I have a new box coming for it and it took very little to safety. I love the look of these trucks.

By far my most favorite body style truck ever! Good looking truck.

2006 F-350 CCLB
6-Speed Manual
6" Fabtech Lift, looking to go a few inches shorter and higher quality
35" Toyo Open Country MT's
AFE stage 2
MBRP 4" turbo back straight pipe
SCT Livewire tunes by Eric
Studded and deleted



The right to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!

Updates:
The truck has had all the fluids and filters changed.
It is now at the body shop getting a drivers cab corner replaced some rust repair around the windshield and some paint.
I have a pair of rust free fenders and a bed coming for it after the May 24 weekend (Canadian Holiday).
The fellow doing the body thinks we may need a new drivers door due to lower rust.
We have completetly removed the Fisher minute mount plow mount under the front bumper. That sure didn't take a minute!!
Amazingly everything works flawlessly on this truck not like my 2005 Dodge ram 2500 cummins.
I will update the pictures once the body work is done.
Havin Fun with my OBS

Figure of speech methinks. Anytime we can rebuild/restore these ol girls is a great thing.

94.5 PSD Dually Crewcab F-350. Uglee, stock and reliable.
