Budget Build Possible? F250 Powerstroke 14R20 tire
Hey, new to the forum here.
Deciding on which direction to go here. Going to look at a F250 4x4 powerstroke for a build. Already have tires, 14r20's, which measure about 49 inches.
Trying to do a "budget Build" here, if thats possible. Truck will not really be abused, no more than a mud pit can put to it. Will not be street driven.
All of the reading I have done has left me not knowing what to do about axles, steering and lift.
Been pondering the idea of 2.5 ton axles, but want to keep the cost down. Would the stock axles under truck hold up? Maybe for a little while? Guess the drive shaft angle would be awful with the stock setup though.
As for lift, 4 link front and rear with coil springs and shocks???? I have seen a few pics of trucks build like this but can not find them. Not expensive coilovers.
Steering, what would be the best way to go here? Anyone ever use hydraulic steering parts from something like a forklift??? Wonder if it will have the power to turn big tires??
Transfer case?? Where to find one?
Thanks for any help or suggestions
