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 :xpimp:

ha, yeah thanks for correcting me, NP435, i was kinda tired and the old mind wasnt working to well. with that combo first gear will be way low atleast for out here, ill use 2nd gear for most of the stuff that needs wheel speed.

ill sell you the truck, but i dont think you want to pay what i want for it :D 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.
