new (to me) mud bog truck *project*

hi to all

picked up this over the weekend.

'85 f250
12+ inches custom lift
460 BBF
granny 4spd
39.5 swampers

**GOT THE WIRING SORTED OUT AND FIXED!! now all of the lights work, and the alternator is charging properly. putting on a steering stabilizer tomorrow, as well as bleeding the brakes.

set up for strictly mud use as of right now. considering doing a few minor things to give it managable road manners to drive back and forth to town and what not.






^ broke both front axles at the same time the very first time i dropped it into the hole. haha
