mud bog 250 project

aight my busted 250 is turning into a mud bog truck, im getting rid of everything i dont need on it and selling it i.e. interior, lights, a/c and anything else i wont need, after i do that im gonna get my buddy to put it on a frame puller and get it all straight and gat rid of the front quarter panels and everything else that is broke and dented im probly gonna get the front suspension working again and shave the fender enough to fit 44" and im probly gonna run either 5:13's or 4:88's (what would be better for competing?) im gonna probly put 5 racing seat with 4 point harness's with some sort of roll cage also what kind of cheap performance parts could i do for mud bogs, i wanna run 5" stacks so i can blow smoke on people on the sidelines. also yall think it would be cool to do something different like im doing by running a diesel at the mud bogs. the pic at the bottom is what im starting with, the motor runs fine all it needs is a radiator and power sterring pump. also it needs the frame to be straightened . what yall think i should do about keepin the egt's low enough to run at high rpm's for more than 1-5 minutes at a time and also wat that 10 k deal to make it smoke like a freight train

Sounds like a fun project... As you take parts off.. list them in the for sale section.. that might help fund the whole thing.

A sawzall is a beautiful thing! Pull anything and everything you wont be using in the final mudbog form. Good luck sounds like lots of fun!
