Project Powerstroke: Single Cab 97 4x4!!

So its almost 2013 and what better way to enter a new year then with a new project.

so i picked up a 88 honda accord did some work to it dumped money fixing things,

then i traded that for a wrecked 95 ford ranger Plus some cash and another 2000 ranger.. fixed up the white ranger

( rear ended and front end wreck plus it didnt run) and painted it and then traded it for this 97 F250.

The honda i traded.








Damge the ranger had







Shes a beater heres a list of things it needs:

1997 Ford F250 xl single cab, Long bed. 4WD independant axle.
bench seat. crappy stereo. 249k miles.

Needs a bed, all dinged up.
tires are too big and rub.
powersteering pump hums.
belt squeeks (possibly part of power steeering)
Fuel bowl leak ( going to convert it to my BUDGET EFUEL)
Cracked radiator support.
tires have maybe a 1/8th of tread.
big dent on the roof.
the bench is ripped.
DMF is rattling. but clutch works.
cracked windshield.
broken drivers side door handle.
exhaust leak on one of the up pipes.
Bad glow plugs, wont start for **** in the morning.
Speedo doesnt work.
cracked fan shroud.
Guy said it might have been tuned by a superchips cuz its throwing a IDM code.
and needs a paint job.

I just named off everything that needs to be fixed to make this truck perfect.

Im in it for less then a monthly Mortgage payment lol

I already installed
6000k HIDS, Tymar intake and put a cover on the motor.

i have 16" chrome rims waiting to get put on.
5" exhaust stack.
CLear diamond headlights.
CHrome grill.
