You planning on staying with a ford frame or does it matter to you? also you want a 4x4 frame or a 2wd frame?

Would you want to stay with 3/4 ton running gear or go to 1/2 ton...A chevy 1/2 ton crew might work and the 5.3s get good milage espicially in a 2wd.

If you get a 96 or later donor (ford) you then get OBD 3 injection OD trans good supension disk brakes A/C and lots of other good stuff..Ford did not change the wheelbase all that much so if you get a model that is similar to yours the wheelbase should be right..Then it is msotly a lot of to change the cabs out..Make new body mounts and such..Measure measure measure. as you go..

Thanks Sam. the only thing that bothers me is the way ford built the body on the 66 they cut down a front door to make the rear door so I think it would be a little different. but who knows. how do I put picture on this?

When you post a reply you can scroll down a bit so you can see manage attachments...Click on that and then you can upload a picture...You may need to resize your pics in order for them to upload..

Look around for a decent truck to be a donor..one that is complete and runs good...Save a whole lot of difficulties that way as you get mostly good parts..

I will have to do some body work but there are a lot of these trucks around so body parts are still there. Truck was sitting in my drive way in Sacramento, CA when some joy rider could not make the turn and came up and slammed the truck, pissed me off, at that time there was no damage to the truck there is still no damage that can not be repaired, old steel you know
