Talking F650 hood conversion

Has anyone ever put a f650 tilting hood on a f350 or f250 sub frame and make it all work?

You would probably need a massive body lift to do it, my dad has a 650 and the cab is probably a good 8 inches off the frame.

I think someone on here as done it before. The hoods are wider than a SD though. It would almost be easier to weld the factory parts together and put them on hinges to tilt.

I saw the pics of one a few years ago. The front axle dosn't line up with the wheel well, and you will need to make mounts for everything that isn't bolted to the motor or firewall.

Yep that is true. You could do like my freightliner and leave the inner fender wells on the body so you can still mount stuff to them. THen just have the hood come down around the fenders.

Wow I guess some people just like to have something that looks like everyone elses ride instead of being a little creative and can only express there comments as criticism. Here is a picture that I found and it dosn't look that bad at all.
