Project Peanut Butter Jelly

Bought this thing when I was 18. I didn't know any better

78 f150, 460/np435, built 9" and dana 44, 42s, super stiff suspension, typical mall crawler bolt ons that broke everytime I tried driving through a puddleuke:


Decided I'm not gonna finish the truggy anytime soon, so I'm making this pig somewhat wheelable after sitting for over a year and a half with broken parts.


Dana 60 front, 14bolt rear, 5.38 gears, 44's, 4link front, deavers rear, etc. I plan on lowering it from 12 inches of lift (10 suspension, 2 body) to 4-5 inches of lift. Will be getting rid of all the mall crawler bolt-ons along the way also.


Just finished swaping in the deavers, moved them back a couple inches and moved them up so the hanger doesn't hang below the frame. Should be around 4-5" lift when done





shaved 14bolt rear





Back on it's own weight. Need to move the shackle back aways. These deavers flattened a lot more then I expected they would. Looks like I got some trimming to do too






Will start the rear bumper and tin work (led tail lights, bob and pie cut the bed, fender cut) while I gather up the parts for the front end

You wanna sell that bumper? Holy shit that things big as fawk, 80's style...but it actually looks unbelievably good.....it's like one of those bumpers that would tempt the shit out of me when I was stuck in traffic.

Truck actually looks remarkably clean.

Yea, for yur trimmin, I'd start with the reveal on the opening, where the flat side of the bed starts to flare out as a guide and not go too much further than that if you can help it. Too big of tire openings when you cut the fenduhs = the gay......not gonna lie

But the rest looks pretty sick. Like I said, I'd pimp the shit out of that bumper....even if it does hurt the approach a little bit. You'll be able to plow right through whatevers in front of you.

BTW.....what's keepin the truck from tipping side to side? And why arn't yur tires chocked both ways? Just lookin out for you boss.

Yes, I am selling the bumper actually. You can drive through the side of a tank with that thing.


I definitely plan on keeping the fender openings clean


The stands are welded to the frame. It's sitting on a pretty good slope so I wasn't worried about chocking the front of the tires. Hopefully I'll get it inside the shop where it's somewhat warm tomorrow for the tin work

So what are your plans for the truck use wise, since you are being a fool and taking all the mall crawler stuff off.

Yeah I can't imagine what shipping would be on that thing to get it to ya, it's heavy. The rear 9" is broke and being sold as a housing. The dana 44 will be up for sale when it's pulled

I've been watching your build for a while now. I really dig your tin work, incredibly clean. Now finish it up to give me some inspiration



PS. Mine all ready has a BB

Nice build!!!! Thants one clean truck
What are you planning on doing with the front end suspension? Are you going to change it over to leaf springs or leave the coils? Im just starting on almost an indentical project except mines a stepside. Also anxious to see how your fenders turn out cuz im also gonna be cutting mine a lil so i can run the 44s and keep the center of gravity as low as possible
Awesome build though!!

pulled alot of crap off the back that I didn't want. Put a fuel cell in, fixed my shackle angle, mounted the fuel pump and filter, and started some tin work












Still got lots to do on the fenders, but you can get the idea of what they will look like
