Next short wide victim

I just picked up an 01 7.3 F250 with 124k miles on it from the original owner. He even had the service records. Body is a little rough and it has some hail damage on the roof. But it runs great and checked out fine. I plan to do some body work anyway to get it painted. I will be posting picks of the build as it goes.

Here is the truck on day one.




Im just glad to be back in a diesel. I went almost 2 weeks and thought I was going to have withdrawls.

That looks like the best kind of truck there is... The kind you can pay cash for!

What are your plans for it? Just a driver or a big build?

3" dropped Dream beams in the front 4 link/coil over rear
22'' rims, 05+ front, roll pan rear, shaved door handles and emblem holes, 08 tailgate
leather buckets, power locks and windows, possible painted interior, sound system

performance mods are undecided. Nothing to over the top because it will be a driver. I will be consulting with Dirk on the engine side along with my own research.

Mostly I want show but still need to have go.

Yes sir.

i was talking with my fab buddy tonight and we probably arent going to go 4 link after all. Just lower it. As soon as I get a short bed fuel tank and the lowering kit we are going to start chopping.
