building my first truck

Was surfing the web looking for a little help in building my 1970 f100 and found this web site. Have to try to find out what type of factory rear end is in the truck and if it can be used and shortened.
Could use all the help I can get on this new project have built engines but now I'm going to try a full restoration.Looking for a big block I can rebuild for this truck also.Hello once again and thanks for sharing what you know.

Old Ford trucks. my favorite!!! welcome to the board. which bb are you looking at?

as far as the rear end, does it have a removable rear cover or is the rear a solid piece? unless i'm wrong, and i do that time to time, a solid rear rear end is a 9 inch ford, if it has a removable cover, it'll be a dana 44 or more likely a dana 60. all of which are shortenable..... we'll figure it out.
