Below are pics of the bed off of the F-800 I bought. It's 24' long overall. What do you guys think? make it into a goose and ebay the fawker, or just scrap it? I'm also gonsidering the possibility of cutting the dovetail off and putting it on my flatbed, but I don't know if I want to tackle that kind of fab work. I'll probably just have a fab shop build the dove tail for me.

Pull it off and sell it as is. If you were around here I would grab that in a heartbeat, I am sure someone would be intrested in it for a few hundred bucks.

Sell it as is. Unless your going to make use of a goose that small it's not going to be worth your time / money to build it. unless you have everything laying around and the time to make it happen...

Your truck looks just about like mine! specs?

1991 F-800, 429 gasser, 6 speed, 20 foot grain body/ hydraulic auger, dump hoist. picked it up for a grand, had it running in an hour. They burnt a fusible link (installed battery cables backwards) and let it sit for 2 years!! Gonna be my leaf cleanup truck. :D

Okay, Bend Over!!!


I'm gonna try it as is first. It won't look as long once I put the sleeper on it.
Also, I may put a tag axle on it, and if I do, I'll need the extra frame length
I dont care about what it looks like, the turning radius is gonna be fuckin horrid with that WB.
