Bought another truck to do up... smoking deal, great find

So we were looking for a 99-03 Superduty with a 7.3L.... well after much searching we found and bought it yesterday......

2000 F350 crew cab long bed... little bit of body damage, but we are doing a full frame off show truck on this thing so no big deal... and 200k+ miles... some sensor is bad and they thought the truck was junk... sensor is a couple hundred bucks and it will run fine and new tranny has 8k miles on it...


WE BOUGHT THE TRUCK FOR $1500!!!!!! That leaves us a lot of money in the budget for upgrades and I am stoked!!!!!!!! I dont know about you, but in my mind, this is an awesome find and I will get some pics of it shortly and I will start a thread showing the work from start to finish when we get going on it...

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

$1500???? Dayum! I don't think you bought that truck, you stole it!!! Nice find. You don't run across deals like that very often.

You got pics?? What are your plans for making it a show truck?? If I may be so bold to ask.

the plans are very extensive and there are a lot of ideas being thrown at us... but it will be very well done with a lot of time and $$$$ into it
