Huff's Green Turd

Ok so I have been lurking around for a while now. Dont know what possesed me to post my own build thread for you guys to tear apart but fuck it. Here it goes.

This started when my 83 Bronco that was going to built happen to have a tree fall on it in a storm we had. I needed to find another vehicle. Just down the road from me a lady had her husbands 75 F250 that he was the original owner of. So $400 and a tow later it was home and the teardown began. I had a straight 6, manual and divorced 205. Along with the shitty closed knuckle 44 and manual steering.

The frame and everything else was pretty rusty so with a wire wheel and angle grinder i got it cleaned up.

I had bought a Skyjacker 4 in lift and a 79 HP44 from a F250. This was pretty stupid but I rebuilt the 44 with 4.88s, a detroit and chromos thinking I could make it survive. Did the same with the rear 60 that came with the truck.Name:  041.jpg

So now after getting this far and just like the ill fated 44 front, I decided to scratch the leaves in the rear.

Now let it be known this is the part I did not do myself. I will not take credit for it. The rear-link was built by http://www.soill4x4.com So Ill 4X4. It is SCOTTYX here on pirate.
He began with a new crossmember.

So to get the numbers right, Scotty had to punch through the narrow ass frame.

The built up 60 rear was dumped in favor of a 14 bolt that Scotty built a custom truss on.

Had a tough time getting the axle set with the driveshaft higher than the lowers but the wheelbase went from about 135" to 123".

The back has some struts built from some spair tube to keep the rear up till I figure up a final weight to order springs.

Lookin good! I would have just cheeped out and done a shackle flip with some longer chevy or 08+ superduty leafs in the rear though, but the 4 link is awesome.

Never seen anyone add the box part of the frame like that either.

So I decided that the frame would need some more strength. I ground out a zillion rivets and removed all of the old factory brackets. I then got some 3/16 plate and began making boxing plates.

I'm liking it. All those speed holes in the box job on the frame are going to be crazy dirt/mud collectors though.

Thanks man! I knda figured they would but I wanted to be able to run brake lines and stuff in the frame stil. Plus there are still enough smaller factory holes in the bottom of the frame that I was planning on being able to hose it out.

Loving it so far. Have you thought about boat sides? It could really help with a wheel base like that.

Ie have thought about boatsides a lot. Not exactly sure how to pull it off. Every time I give it some thought I push it to the side as I have plenty else to do with it. But now I'm getting to the point where I need to decide. I'm a big fan of the Offroad Design rigs. Aside from them being chevy.

I haven't made much progress lately. I patched up the core support some. It has some rust issues but nothing interesting enough to post. On Monday I went and picked up all of my tube for the cage and some plate to build a belly skid. I hate to say it but for now I may have to go with some sliders. I would like to boatside it but I just want to get it running for now.

It's a good thing you picked up a rust-free truck. Otherwise, you would've had to spend a lot of time making ugly-ass repairs, just to be able to get in the damn thing.

Seriously though, I like it. I'll be watching this one.

Subscribed! Sweet ass ride! Since you're spending the money back there anyways, pop for some disc brakes in the rear. And just cut the damn rockers off and weld in some rectangle tube to boatside it, you're almost there anyways when you do sliders. Just my .02...

Ok so I have been thinking about the design of the boatsides. I think I have a good plan but my question is this. Once I cut away the sheetmetal to bring the rockers up I will have to replace some of the floor. Where the boatside and the body meet should I keep them separate or weld the body to the boatside? I have never done them before and didn't know if it was welded together it would start tearing the body when the frame flexes or if the boatsides would stiffen things up enough that it would not be a problem.

That all depends on how far you cut them in. I just welded my tube sliders right where I cut off the rockers. If you and cut past the body mounts eliminating them than you will need to fab up some sort of body mount with a bushing in it like your stock ones in order to let the body flex a bit. I know, "because I have" can jack up the whole side of my rig with a high lift under my sliders welded to the body.

That has got to be the ugliest axle truss I've ever seen, but I like the rest of the build.

Been a while but I finally had time to get some work done on the sliders and cage.

I cut the rockers to fit the sliders. I will have to trim the bottom of the doors as well.

I used 2X5 rec tube for the slider and 2 inch square to mount. Its just tacked for now then I will pull them to finish and drop the cage through the floor to finish weld it.
