Might Be getting a Stroker
Ok, Howdy everybody, this is my first post, so bare with me.
ok, I have an early 94 F250 with a Factory turbo-ed IDI, and it has been an amazingly good truck to me, It did a 2,600 mile round trip hauling a slide-in camper and a Jeep on a towbar and it never broke a sweat, but I really want a Stroker that gets better mileage that the IDI with 4:10's, and I found one, a 96 F350 4x4 CCLB with 240,000 and little to no rust, for $4000. I have not seen the truck yet in person, but everything seems good, I'm just waiting for the snow to melt to go see it.
Now here's the problems, as a High Schooler, I need Mother's approval, I have the money, but the Miles scare her, (I had a good friend of mine with a 97 F250 2wd with over 700,000 on it, and it had no problems at all.) And It has the same TTB Dana 50 under the front as my IDI, I have not seen a one ton with a TTB before, so that worries me.
so basically here's what I'm looking at, 96 F350 4x4 7.3 Powerstroke, E40D, CCLB, 3:73 Axles. And a stupid TTB Front axle.
What do you guys think?
