Alright I have been around with a few other builds and this ones going a different route. I picked up a 07 350 rclb 4x4 for 3500 bucks. Pretty much a rust free truck for maryland standards lol.
Plan is to make it a short bed.
Goal is to make 500 hp and nitto 420s for more of a street truck look.
Paint will be something simple interior will just be cleaned.
Will have 5% tint all around and 30 on the windshield just like my 05 had.
Here some pics of what we are startin with

Going to pick up a short bed Wednesday hopfully it's as good shape [rust free] as he says. Needs body work on passenger side but that's no big deal

$3500 bucks! :Shocked: Makes me think my 06 reg cab is worth a whole lot less than I thought it was :sad:

Your truck looks exactly like what mine looked like, before my conversion.

Good luck with your build. Seems you sourced a short bed pretty fast. Those can be really hard to find, and very expensive. These things are a blast, you're gonna love it!

Pulled my trans to see what the problem was and found this. Seems to be the problem. Put in a new shift solenoid and bang just like new!

Looking forward to this.

I still think you got that truck for a steal; I am jealous. It was worth that in parts alone.

Can't wait to see this one! I love the paint on your crew cab, I would paint mine the same if we both were not in MD lol. Seriously though if you need some random parts let me know. I have a lot of stuff laying around after my build. Trans core, old afe intake, oil filter/fuel filter housing, egr delete kits, MTW stg 2 that needs rebuilt, ect...... Good luck with the build.
