1979 F350 w/ 99-03 7.3L and ZF6, What do ya think?
Hi there everybody, this is my first post ever, so bear with me lol. I am planning to build a 1979 F350. And first off i dont wanna just slap this thing together. I have found a rust free, gutted cab for $200, and a front clip for $150. I would like to make this thing look like it just rolled out of the factory (minus the fact that i want to put moto metal 950's on it and it will be lighted up to the gills) I will be using this truck for show and work. and maybe to intimidate a few ricers along the way. Here is what my plan is:
Chassis: Fully custom built frame, built to the cab and motor,
Drivetrain: NBS 7.3L fully rebuilt with an Empire Diesel Procharger, ARP Head studs, upgraded intercooler, 125 hp injectors from industrial injectrion, AFE stage 2 air intake, Air dog II fuel system, 4 or 5 inch Dymond eye, and an Edge Evo Programmer,
Tranny will be a ZF6, (preferably rebilt, if its possible) and a dual disk SB clutch. It will have custom built drive lines, but im kinda lost when it comes to axles, I would like somethin like the dodge with the automatic hubs, but i would like to stick to ford parts.
Please give me some insight, ideas and comments are prefered
