what to do next

well, now that i have another daily driver and will have a tow rig by feb. ive decided that i want to tear the truck apart and do some crazy shit to it. i know a 302->F150 bellhousing->NP235->NP205 is going in soon. ill be pulling the cab off the truck to do everything, making a full engine cage that will be tied into the exo. i plan on keeping the leaf setup for now since it works well for my wheeling type, i think im going to shorten the wheelbase to around 113-117. cut the frame right behind the cab and tube the rear out for the flatbed, besides that i cant think of anything so throw out some idea's to get mind working, also pics with naked chicks on trucks will help alot

ill sell you the truck, but i dont think you want to pay what i want for it which would include a 200% mark up on the parts i bought, i would have to put a penny on my labor (i aint cheap), plus the truck is beat to hell and back. o and i work about 2 weeks out of the month traveling around the us teaching computer networking classes, then the time i have off i do some free lance consulting in town.

im in birmingham AL, after i buy my tow rig at the first of the year my self and 2 other buddies plan on doing a 2 week wheeling trip, hitting tellico, paragon and as many others that we can find that are worth riding, we are already stocking up on spare everythings so unless i have problems after my 302 swap we should be heading out in march or so.
