So, I know what you must be thinking, "Is this kid for real? Does he know what a search button is? I bet he's gonna ask a bunch of stupid questions!!"
Hopefully you're not thinking that cause oddly enough it's not the case haha.
I come to you today to bring awesomeness to F150 lovers alike as I'm taking upon the most ridiculous task ever. (maybe over exaggerated)
Last week I was traded a car for a 2003 F150 Sport 2wd. (sunroof, flair side, completely loaded)
This week, I start my SAS. Right now, it's in the driveway ready to be completely torn down and built back up. I've got all the time in the world as I'm currently getting ready to get out of the Army (2nd Ranger battalion) so I don't actually go to work. Plus, i've got a plethera of parts availibility so I'm hoping this goes relatively smooth. I'm not looking to lift this thing 80 feet in the air, I'm mostly just doing this to prove to a friend of mine that it's possible AND inexpensive. So, with that, I ask for any awesome advice (aside from the usual "go buy a 4x4" crap please and thanks) and any input you guys think would make this thing awesome!
Specs currently, 4.6l Ford 9" 3.73 in the rear, was axle over, the guy I got it off of flipped it. IFS in the front.
Adding; Dana 60 off of a 78 F-250. Leaf springs off a 87 chevy K10 and enough 1/4 steel to fab hangers all day. I plan on running NO BIGGER than 35's unless I body lift it. Then maybe 37's.
Now, the only questions I have, will come when I add either the manual transfer case OR a whole new tranny t-case combo. AND, any steering suggestions. Estimated budget right now, cheap.
So, Thanks much! And I hope I didn't make anyone poopy by posting this!
