78 F250 SC build

This site has been really helpful. I've learned some good ways to do things & also what not to do over the years reading these forumns.

Here's what I'm working on...

78 F250 SC 4x4 long bed

Converted front suspension to 3-link coil spring using 88 F150 coil spring buckets & fox shocks. 6" lift skyjacker coil springs.
Cross over steering
TMI 400 w/aussie heads
Howell fuel injection
MSD HEI distributer
Wieand intake
Headman fenderwell exit headers
Dual diaphram brake booster
ZF5 tranny w/LUK clutch
NP205 twin stick
Detroit in rear D60

Should have the new engine & ZF done and the truck back on the road in the next week.

Nope, not a link.

Truck is used mostly as a DD, huntin' truck, and playin in the mountains.

Wheels are 17x9 pro comps, tires are 35" Duratrac's.

The 6" lift coil springs were a little light. After settling the overall lift is more like 4-1/2 to 5", but the ride is outstanding.
