So I bought another truck recently, because its very close to what I've always wanted, but its not quite there. I've also been a member here for awhile, and never really posted pictures of my build projects, so I thought I'd try it once and see how it went.
Picked this up for $1100... no joke. Runs perfect, has 211k miles on the clock, doesnt leak a drop, and looks like its never been touched.
94, F350, 2wd stick, 4 door long bed, XL
I've been wanting to build a highway pulling rig for awhile, and this is basically the truck I wanted, but its lacking in a few key departments. First is the year... 94. I'm always concerned with running the 94s because they're impossible to test or pull codes or really do anything with. They cant be buzz tested, or contribution tested, they dont have the ability to throw most codes i'd need for diag, and they just generally annoy me. Other things that I wanted and didnt get would be power interior stuffs, but that really is a minor issue. I've got no problem swapping the benches for the buckets and a center console, and putting power doors on it.
I also have a veritable crap ton of parts in my garage... 17* pump, superduty exhaust manifolds, up pipes, turbos, spiders, pedastals, blocks, the list goes on and on and on. I've been collecting powerstroke for years, and I just want the one truck to end the obsession. I'm not going for supreme power, but I will get pissy if I have to downshift for a grade pulling 17k. The one thing I dont have would be a dash / harness assembly to solve the "94 problem".
I dont really have a list of parts that I will be using, other than e-fuel, the 17* HPOP, Single shots (size TBD), and what seems to be enough 5" exhaust to run water thru a small town.
So heres the truck on day 1, and now i get to dig and dig figuring out weither I should build the best possible configuration of the GT-38, or weither I should pinch my spending for a bit and get the R added in there.
