track looked crazy this year and was told they stopped the race for the big tire class and just went on a lap count as they couldnt finish it. he killed the door when making a pass and hit a tree and wouldnt stay closed after that and now the outer skin is coming off the door itself

Awesome pics, I'll bet that was fun as it gets. What are y'all thinking of doing for the steering? Hydro maybe?
we talked last night night and will probably just get another used box and put the spare knuckle on for now. i took a look last night and the knuckle is broken at the stock steering mount and just the weld on the back side of the artec kit is whats holding it all together right now. what he wants to do is send the spare knuckles out and get TMR arms and machined to fit them then go full hydro. just not in the budget right now as has some other parts to fix as well to get it back on the trail

small update as truck is kinda back together

after the race and seeing what the truck needed to be back on the trail it sat for a bit while he collected parts. sent his spare knuckles to TMR to get hi steer arms, sent the one tire out for repair, ordered 4340 inner shafts. tossed a new steering box in but did not drill it for the assist, plan now is to go full hydro. to get by till his knuckles get back (been at tmr for almost 3 months now) he found a used knuckle and cut the steering arm off the broken one and welded it up. so plans for next little bit it so get the new knuckles on and full hydro and just do more cage work that we did not have time to do.

pics

the broken knuckle



getting a new steering box the night before we planned on going wheeling



fresh sheet metal to beat up





he took it across the scales and the fat bitch weighed in just under 7500 pounds

everything about the superduty trucks is just bigger and heavier. just his doors are almost double that of my old obs doors, there is a big ass crash bar in the middle of them. frame is bigger and thicker, and i way overkilled that flat deck when i built it. i took my rig across the scales the same day but did it on the trailer as knew the weigh of truck/trailer. not quite as accurate but planb came in at 6000, was really hoping to be closer to 5500 but oh well

My 1983 F-250 is I think around 6500. Maybe a bit more now with the 203/205. It was 5500 as a 2wd with a 460 and C6.

The CCLB 2018 Powerstroke I rented the other day was 7700. And that's with an aluminum body.

On the other end of the spectrum, my long bed 1967 F-100 was a whopping 3900 lbs. 240 inline 6, C6 transmission, 9" rear.

Trucks got fat. The brakes should tell you everything.

Damn, 7,500Lbs. No wonder he's always breaking shit

My 2000 7.3L 6 speed 4x4 ECSB F250 "only" weighs 6,680Lbs according to the local scrapyard. I can't believe you added that much weight to a regular cab 5.4L.

Just to add to the new trucks are fat discussion, my '84 6.9L 4 speed 4x4 RCLB F250 weighs 5,500-5,600 at the same scrap yard.

We didn't get a before weight but after was 10,100. Scale isn't super accurate since it also weighs train cars, but I figured since Ford literature has that truck at 7700, I was carrying 2400-2500 lbs of cement. Take it up with them or your local scale owner. 200 lbs less doesn't make them any less massive compared to the older trucks.

I'm kind of a Superduty fan boy. I have a lot of love for your buddy's build. I'm also very cheap and miserly. Thus I really appreciate your buddy's build.

a bunch of guys he works with went out on their sxs for a sunday cruise so he tagged along and managed to flop the truck again and wasnt wearing his seat belt and wound up in the passenger seat and fucked his shoulder up pretty good and is rocking a sling for a few days. truck seems to be fine other then needing a new front fender







was side hilling and found a soft spot and dug in



front fender is nicely formed around the front tube work now

hes been back working on the truck again

its getting all new doors and front fenders so should be nice and straight for the first wheeling trip



new rear bump stops, limiting strap and changed the rear springs out for a set that is a little more firm. the set he had where too soft and sat low in the ass and shackle angle was crap





still flexes up pretty good with the stiffer rear springs

Definitely using it as inspiration for my next rig when it happens.

Looks like the ramps coming in handy already. Too bad the new doors have no company logos as that kinda went with the welfare look
