Looking for a replacement lost due to divorce

Had a 78 F150 Shortbox 4x4 until 2008. Lost it due to divorce after 35 years of marriage, go figure!

Disappointed in all full size 4x4 pickups BECAUSE of the terribly long Wheel Base (WB), until 2010 and I ran into the Raptor (133" WB)

Followed that intro and the pains of correcting weaknesses of the OEM vehicle.

Mainly, the front hub lockup for 4 wheel drive.

About a year ago, saw a F250 Extended cab short box diesel at a dealer (WB 142) Raptor Screw is 145 BUT it was the new 6.7L Diesel and it has Manual Hubs to lock front end into 4x4

Been researching the F350 4x4 Power Stroke and ran into thread about Carli Suspension 2.5 leveling

Now I'm here and looking to purchase in the near future.

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

In the top nav bar, click "Forums" - Scroll down. There is a section for 7.3L (old and new), 6.0L, 6.4L and 6.7L - Lots of information, but I'm sure it will help you figure out what you may go for!
