You lost...?

I've always liked the comp cut fender look, but I'm just not there yet. Maybe if we go to big boy axles someday...

I will however take you up on your trade offer. I've always wanted a 1ton diesel. I wanted a red one, but I'll take it...

Here's a pic of your new / used 2008 F250....

Nah, your Google fu is probably just fine. I didn't provide complete, or correct info...

We put her up on the scales all loaded down with basic tools / gear and full of fuel. At 4219 she's a heavy bitch, but the overall weight distribution isn't too bad....

4200 isn't bad at all

it isn't heavy until you break the 5k mark

I agree. I scaled my 3.4L 1st gen 4runner at 4150 dry.
My 79 mini was 3850 with me and some fuel.

Once you throw my fat ass in there, the wife, the Engel fridge all loaded full of food, the campfire buddy and a propane tank or 2, the kitchen sink, and a handful of other misc items... Ok, you've talked me into it, big boy axles are on the list!

Big Boy Axles? What are you pondering? I think if I were to do mine again I'd hold my cash until I could afford to build 9" front and rear.

Still got lots of pics to post before we get to any of the current shenanigans...


This sacrificial lamb was an 86 turbo, but sadly is no more. All so we could upgrade the perfectly good W56B, with less than 2K miles on it since it was rebuilt and installed in the red truck... Iím retarded...

At least now you have a decent trans for when you outgrow the RE.

Really just did this for the larger 23 spline input into the craw box and the lower first gear. Though we keep it street legal, itís basically a trail only rig and the 22RE does just fine. Donít see any motor upgrades in this trucks future. However, the black truck will get something far more angry & boosted...

Itís actually a little sad, still havenít pulled the W56B out of this one and swapped in the R151F yet...

Valid. But most likely still not in this trucks future....



After 4-5 seasons of running trails up in the mountains and a couple of 2 week trips to Moab over the years, we found a small crack in the frame at the front crossmember. Pulling it into the shop one day, we noticed it was being caused by the steering box and 37s flexing the drivers side of the frame back and forth. Canít find any pics of the crack, but we came up with this to take care of the flex. Itís worked out good so far....

The only pics I can find donít really show how the inside of the frame on the passenger side was plated. Or the final gussets we actually used. Will take a few pics of the finished setup when I get a chance...

So, Iím gathering parts together to swap the trans in the red truck. While digging through the parts bins in the garage for a shifter, I came across a forward shift short shift base, but can not find the stick??? Would like to give it a shot, but got more than enough projects and donít want to make a shifter right now. Who sold these and where might I buy another stick? Thereís gotta be an ďadd to cartĒ button out there somewhere....

I know Marlin makes their own t-case shifter and Iíve actually got their short shift setup for the R151F, but canít find anything on this forward shift, short shift base...

The fit & finish on this isnít all that nice up close. It doesnít look like a production piece. Prob worth emailing Marlin to see if they recognize it. If anybody would... Good call.

Compliance with one's compulsion culminates in complete and captivating consumption.

Thanks guys...


Still lots of old pics and upgrades to post, but since Iíve been jumping all over the place with this build thread anyway...

Pulled the MAF off today to take care of some stuff and apparently itís somehow growing barnacles in there. WTF??? Minor signs of this at the TB inlet as well, but not nearly as bad. No signs in the upper intake plenum at all. Not sure what would have caused this...?

Corrosion...clearly. But not so much on the moisture. This truck lives in a climate comtrolled garage approx 11 months out of the year. Yes, itís exposed to the elements the 4 weeks a year or so we spend on the trails with it, but this just seems excessive...

Gonna swap it out with a spare MAF for now and keep and eye on it...
