Whats Your Dream Truck Build?!

I want to know what everybodys dream build is. I love projects and im looking into building one from scratch soon so I wanna get as many ideas as I can! The truck Im leaning towards the most is a 1995 F250/350 4door 4x4,
dont know if to stick with a 7.3 or maybe a cummins engine, I dont know which would be best. I do know one thing though, i want it to haul ***!!
Lets see those ideas!

Cummins will haul and be cheaper to make really fast but if you want a decent fun 400hp rig that is pretty cheap stick with the 7.3.

Stock it has 350HP and 650 ft/lb TQ, and from what I hear they are a little cheaper to mod, too.

6.7L Cummins Specs

Yea i heard cummins in general is a tad bit cheaper to mod. Ive heard alot about the 5.9 cummins that they have alot of potential. A local shop around here GAW Diesel, has a 06 5.9 cummins and it does 9.39 at the track.

I would never buy another Dodge tho. The engines are great, the rest f the truck sux. I spent over 10k in repairs over 3 years, including the transmission that went at 68K miles.

LOVING my 7.3L F-350! :scruffy
